I have an 87' prelude 2.0L and this is my first clutch work. Never did one. But can I put a flywheel shim? And also how do I know if it needs one? And my flywheel doesnt seem to have damage, no grooves nor chips in teeth.

Do you
have the same problem?

I didnt I looked up fly wheels and it showed the shims along w/flywheels. Then looked more into it and it looked as if they were used to replace the step that were ether worn dow or resurfaced. Do u know if I can do that to this one?

I would think the wear is negligible since it looks so good. The shims in my opinion are made for when you have it resurfaced.I have replaced a lot of clutches that were not resurfaced and never used a shim.
