    Bought a second hand flywheel and a brand new clutch kit to put in my PU

    When I bolt the flywheel up and then put the clutch disk up to the mating surface the clutch 'springs' catch the flywheel bolts.

    Viewed from the side the clutch springs are above the surface of the friction material.


    Took the washers off from the bolts and it still catch's (yes I know the washers are on in this picture, just wanted to show the relation between bolt and flywheel surface)


    I have the clutch disk around the correct way.

    Have an old clutch disk that has more clearance on the flywheel side, fits perfect but is the wrong spline.

    So, can anyone advise what clutch disk I actually need?

    Ever so slightly annoyed as I had a free afternoon (with clearance from management!) to get the engine in the PU. No telling when that might happen again!

    Ah yes, Engine is a Chevy 350, Clutch is an 11" and the input shaft is 26 spline.

    So.... What clutch disk do I need in order to fit the flywheel??

    Been a while since I had a stick, but that flywheel looks pretty thin to me. Here's an image of a new one for comparison.

    I went thru this crap withh a Centerforce clutch and the flywheel that came with my stroker BBC kit. Centerforce had an excellent tech line and told me how to measure, I ended up buying thier flywheel. Problem solved.

  5. Like the guys said,,,the flywheeel is way too thin,,,must have been cut a lot.
    The bolt heads almost appear even with the friction surface.
    It looks to be a stock iron wheel as well,,,,get a new good one.
