How new are your motor mounts?also could be the balancer.
brand new engine mounts,supported it with jack stands...
Did you use an alignment tool to get everything centered?
Did your pressure plate come with alignment dowels and did you use them?
used the alignment tool,and i used the dowel pins
CHeck that none of your flywheel bolts backed out
its torqued to 24 pounds,just finished today so dont think they backed out!.....man,could i have a unbalanced flywheel or clutch out of the box?,i did everything by the book here guys?,dont think i messed anything up??,clutch feels good,just the car is vibrating like mad!!,what could i have done??

A mismatch will definitely cause the kinds of vibration that you're describing.

The OEM imbalance is 50oz. Many folks that rebuild motors balance them to either 28oz or zero oz.

Where is your old flywheel?

*drum roll*

...and what it is?
its a stock flywheel,but he had the flywheel and i would think he balanced it for the 28oz balancer?,i think i remeber him saying that....i see a lot of drill holes on it?

You could. Find out what that's going to cost you though. Might be cheaper/faster to buy a new one and sell the wrong one.
ok,im going to call the engine builder and find out,im a decent back yard mechanic but this one im a little pissed about!,wasted my day!...live and learn i guess,i hope the flywheel fixes the problem though..lol,thanks for input guys,ill be back at it tomoro night..
