So i got a bunch of old parts...

A set of semi-hemi heads (whee!)
Engle 110,
counterweight crank,

ANd a chopped flywheel, 8-doweled...

It says "Usiserv Brazil" on it.
Is this thing cast or forged?

How to tell?
ANybody know?

Set the flywheel on your workbench on the seal side so the clutch side is up, Tap the edge with a hammer or wrench. If it rings it is forged if all you get is a clunk it is cast.
Here is a link the demonstrates it on a crank but the same principle applies.
