Which Clutch for Solid Flywheel on a 2.4 10v jtd?

Hi everyone,

I'm in the process of collecting bits together to convert the dmf to a solid flywheel.

I have sourced a fiat coupe 20v turbo flywheel,which i'll get refaced(it has minimal wear,but

just for peace of mind!) and am now in the

process of trying to find a clutch . . . . .the options seem to be :

The fiat 20v turbo clutch.

The Alfa 3.2 gta clutch.

It looks like the Fiat clutch can cope with the torque,if the figures i've seen are correct it

copes with 5nm more than a standard 10v jtd puts out,but the gta clutch has a larger

friction area on the driven plate,and has been suggested as an upgrade for the standard

20vt clutch in some circles.

Now the question,has anyone any idea which one would be better able to cope with a

remap?I am guessing that the clutches' ability to cope with torque is related to the

clamping pressure and how strong the drive plate is?

I'm not sure which one to go for,or if there are any alternatives I may have missed(and

don't say dmf!!I have it on good authority,ppc mag,that this gearbox is used on another

vehicle with a solid flywheel!not sure which,tho . . )

Any thoughts,suggestions or ideas will be appreciated!Thanks in advance

Hello Looneymoo,

You need to speak to Dan or Ned at Autolusso; 01582 869560; Dan has a 156 jtd with a solid flywheel etc, and Autolusso are selling a kit; spoke to him myself on this very subject - Could you post to say how you get on with the conversion?

Best of luck

The Captain

Hi Captain,

Thanks for that,think you are right,Autolusso could well be the people to talk to.

I may have a look at the Fiat Coupe forum,too,to see what their thoughts on clutches are?

Hopefully within the next two to three weeks I'll have an update on the conversion.When I have I'll update
