A ground flywheel is heaps better than a machined one. They can be done on a lathe but can get shudder and not bed in as well. I'd get it machined by a good clutch and brake shop.

Stop !!! Get it to someone who knows what they are doing. Had flywheels lightened / balanced and skimmed before in backyard workshops. Once the tool (or should that be Tool !) touches the surface if its not done correctly all you'll get is a sorry and a scrap flywheel. Precision grinding sounds much better, but I don't know much about that.

they must be ground. you cant machine the friction face, it hardens with use.

spigot bearing is a little bush in the back of the crankshaft that the nose of the gearbox input shaft runs in.

thrust bearing is pressed against the fingers of the clutch pressure plate when you put your foot on the pedal. The pressure plate spins around with the engine, the clutch fork pushes this bearing into the spinning fingers which disengages the clutch.

Both should come in your clutch kit. you should replace them both because they are so hard to access later.

You should read a manual before proceeding further, the flywheel bolts often have to be replaced and need to be torqued correctly.
