How do you know whether it is balanced? How do you balance?
An M180 flywheel is very much NOT independently balanced. It is balanced with the crankshaft. I would assume swapping flywheels is deemed "close enough". But what you can NOT do is use an M180 manual transmission flywheel on an M130 engine, since the crank and flywheel on the M130 are independently balanced. I have heard that a machine shop that rebuilds engines can balance an M180 flywheel such that it is neutral (balanced) independently by doing a lot of metal removal. That's as far as I got with it.

I doubt that an M180 flywheel has any particular value.
