Trans & Clutch 4 - Installing The Clutch
What you wanted to know about clutches but were afraid to ask. I'm putting a ACT MB1-XTSS on the car in this video. Step height, clutch dowell pins, bolt part numbers, alignment and various clutch parts are described in this video. It's part of an all-inclusive drivetrain tech piece I'm working on that's broken up into sections to maintain focus on the individual processes involved.

Flywheel Tip
A common problem with the replacement flywheel's on LLV's has been the ring gear welded off center to the plate. If this happens the starter teeth will most likely grind with the new flywheel. If you don't want to replace the flywheel a second time, check it before you install it. Here's how.





3 TON FLYWHEEL! Vintage Steam Rally,Stourport 12th July 2009
Vic showing off his pride and joy....plus a 2 stroke TANK engine, he informs me the BIG one developes 125hp @ 250rpm.. Filmed and edited by Racerroy TORQUE = HP x 5252 ÷ RPM Torque = (125 x 5252) / 250 = 2626 ft lbs or 3560Nm That's an amazing amount of torque Sadly the owner of this engine 'Vic' seen in the film passed away in December 2012, I don't know which out of his collection was his favourite but I bet he keeping any eye on them all. He was a character and a gentleman I had the privilege to speak with many times I have had a message from the new owner which I have copied onto here and it reads. .Hello racerroy, I originally bought and removed this engine from it's working place (York waterworks in 1997) I then installed it in one of my buildings and returned it to running order but after suffering a mental brake down mistakenly sold it to Vick. I bought it from his daughter before it was put to auction to stop it from being sold overseas!! The engine is going into a privet collection in Suffolk just up the road from where she was built, which I think is where she belongs. Steve

VW TDI Dual Mass Flywheel DMF Nightmare
Dual Mass Flywheel(DMF) on a 2003 VW Golf TDI ALH 1.9L. The Flywheel was more then 15deg off (Twisted) and off-centered. That caused a horrible and unexplainable off balance wobble in the rpm range of 0-2000 rpm. The sound was similar to a helicopter. Apparently the DMF is only rated to 100k miles and have been know to fail in as little as 50k miles. Some have said that it is designed to fail. The flywheel removal was impossible because the center mounting bolts were inaccessible. The VW experts said that you should be able to force the flywheel back into alignment to remove the 12 point mounting bolts. I tried that for about 30 mins. I was told that if you drill out the rivets that the assembly will separate. After drilling out the 8 rivets for almost an hour, only the surface that makes contact with the clutch came off. The center hub that was covering the mounting bolts remained. The last option was to cut the center hub to allow access to the mounting bolts. This worked like a charm and only took about 15 mins to complete. Now if you were wondering the DMF and SMF have different bolts. The DMFs bolts are a 12 point Triple Square 12mm bolts. I used Lisle(tm) 4 piece Triple Square set part no. 60750 to remove the 6 DMF bolts with a 13mm socket and moly. The Lisle(tm) set has 4 sized (6mm, 8mm, 10mm & 12mm). The 8mm is needed to remove the 12 bolts from the left and right inner driveshafts to remove the transmission to access the clutch and flywheel. Side Note: Always support you engine when you doing a clutch or timing job. In this video I was unaware that the engine had slide out of the passenger-side mount and was only being held up but the Exhaust manifold. This is not a good thing.
