Looks like you got your answers. I would have thought loose bolts.

wow, definitely looks like a bad install job and just plain old GM wear and tear. if that was the stock flywheel then it was already due for replacement a few thousand miles ago. like the others said red lock tight and make sure your torque is correct. make sure you dont crossthread! lol.

Looks like the holes were wallowed out due to loos mounting bolts.

The GM Diesels were notorious for this to happen. I had it happen in a 6.1 liter Delta 88 Diesel 2 years ago. The transmission shops it talked to said it happens, no reason. 4 hour repair.

Looking at the wear around the bolt hole at the 3 o'clock position in the photo, I'd say that bolt (and maybe others as well) wasn't torqued properly and worked it's way loose. that would put the flywheel under a lot of stress and set up vibrations that would eventually weaken it.

mike i believe at one time this flywheel was stuck or jammed and someone tried to turn the engine over while it was stuck and fractured the center part of this flywheel.
