Is eLearn always right! I just changed the gearbox on a 156 2.5 V6. I didnt remove the clutch because it was almost new but from the look of it (ie the thickness and what appeared to be springs on the friction plate ) i'd have said it was a solid flywheel. However when I fire up elearn and look at the 2.5 V6 engine components it comes up with a DMF similar to the JTD.
The GTA is a 3.2 version of the V6 but when I see pictures of the GTA flywheel it appears to have 8 bolts not 6 to the crank , do all the V6 flywheels have 8 bolts?
Q3 on another (far inferior of course) alfa forum, a chap named Spanky I believe, stated that the 2.5 V6 flywheel was interchangeable with the 1.9 JTDs this would seem to indicate a six bolt pattern crank end.
I realise that there are many reasons to do with smoothness, gear selection, gearbox wear that mean you shouldn't change DMF's for Solid flywheels, I've read all about that and considered carefully arguments on both sides so kindly resist the temptation to bring that up unless you've actually done it and had it on a running car. I really just want to know purely by diameter and bolt fitting what flywheels will fit on what engines. and specifically does the 2.5 V6 have a solid or DM flywheel ( or either depending on what year) and would if physically fit on the 1.9 oil burner.
I thank you all in advance for your experience, and knowledge.
