Not a at-your-house job to me - as it requires removing the transmission (and transfer case if 4WD) to get at the flywheel to pull it off. Also, I can't imagine a mobile mechanic having a lathe to turn a flywheel in his truck - that is a take it to a clutch shop (or an autoparts store who has a machine shop to do it) work item. Or if significantly damged or has already been turned so it is too thin to turn again, get a replacement one to put in.

I also wonder how you know it is a flywheel repair job - unless you have seen stripped starter teeth on it, meaning it has to be rebuilt or replaced. Usually the problem is the clutch disc facings or clutch pressure plate, or throwout bearing or its adjustment.

Auto - Service or Auto - Transmission would be your Search the List category - many transmission shops only work on automatic transmissions now, so a manual transmission usually one takes it to a clutch shop or just trades it in for a rebuilt one at an auto parts store for typically $100-200 for normal personal use vehicles.
