2.5 V 200tdi Clutch?

Recommended Posts

Just looking into the details of a V8 conversion plans (much research before commitment to cutting and bashing!), and was just wondering.......

You can get a V8 conversion plate to fit the Series box naturally, and the 200TDI bolts straight onto a series box as well.

So, what I be wondering, if I go down the route of a LT77 from a 200TDi ie short-bell housing, is there differences between the series clutch and TDi clutch since I've seen a flywheel assmbly for fitting to a V8 with a short bellhousing? It say TDi clutch fitment, but wondering whether it's just bog standard series bits, or no difference :rolleyes:

A series clutch is 10-splines and an LT77 is 20, so the plate won't fit. I don't know about the cover, the thrust bearing looks the same, but I'm not sure if they are.

Right............you need the flywheel drilled to take the smaller clutch. You need the clutch plate that is relevant to the gearbox not the engine. If you're gonna run a series box you need a series clutch plate, if you're gonna run an LT77 then you need a 90 clutch plate. Clutch covers so far as I can see are the same. I couldnt see any difference between a series 3 one and a 90 one. (series 2 is totally different).

Other thing you'll need to think about is how to get round the spigot bush problem. I truned down the input shaft form the gearbox and did things that way.
