This is what it should look like.
As Mike said, it is the official "Lycoming" name but what many people call Fly Wheel. It doesn't really have enough mass to warrant the Fly Wheel name, so I think Lycomings' name is more correct.... but when in a foreign country, I guess you need to speak the local slang to be understood
