What was the story on the flywheel, did you get to the bottom of that?

Grumm, Goggs, do you use a manual or hydraulic clutch release?

What kind of throw out bearing arm?

I guess you got that, not everyone can be both like you Sid.


G has a little bit on just the last few days, once he has a chat to our dyno guy we may be able to shed a little light on the flywheel situation.

I try not to look in the mirror, there's always some old fart in there! :-o
There's some odd combos in the 4.3 cranks but you should be able to get info from Duttweiler on what you have.

If the flywheel was an odd thing it wouldn't have made sense to take it off as I wouldn't have thought it would be much use for anything else
It's a one piece seal on the crank and has a six bolt pattern with one bolt offset.

So I 'm going to grab a Monaro bell housing and flywheel  down from the roof
and see how the gearbox looks bolted on and see how much bigger the other box I have is
Now if some one had a Bert box lying around....
Ian Powell the dyno guy may be coming by on tuesday night for a look. to work out what how he's going to hook it up

Busy, me, yes. Between Moto Guzzi clutches and Vincent wiring looms. you could say I'm busy
I've got more work at home than at work, and then there's the home renovations.

I believe the one piece seal "stock crank" uses a counter weighted flywheel but a "stock crank" in not normally what you'll find coming out of Duttweiler. I bet its got splayed bolt steel main caps & an after market crank under it. I would contact Duttweiler, they'll have records of it.
