    510 aluminum flywheel

    I appreciate all the help, but I still can't find a supplier to confirm the parts will fit my car. 1.8 motor, 280Z turbo trans. I need an aluminum flywheel and clutch. Flywheel is 12" diameter, 120 tooth, 7.87" surface Input shaft is 1" diameter, 24 spline. I understand that the Roadster clutch is the best economical deal, but can't find a supplier who will match a clutch and flywheel. any suggestions ? thanks

    510 aluminum flywheel

    Once again, forgive me for my ignorance, but I'm new to 510's I am bringing an old road race car back life. It has a new 1.8 L race motor, a 280ZX 5 speed trans. I want to use an aluminum flywheel and need to know what clutch and throw out bearing and bearing holder fits this set up. The current parts all work, but I don't know how old/worn they are and there are no identifying numbers on them. Also I see talk of 200mm and 240mm flywheels, what do I need to use ? thanks again Michael Rankin

    L1.8 Crank Pulley

    Don't know, since I'm new to 510's I trusted Rebello and Troy Ermish on this.

    L1.8 Crank Pulley

    I bit the bullet and bought a pulley dampner combination from Rebello, a little expensive but the right thing to do for a race motor.

    510 Aluminum Drums

    I have a pair of new aluminum drums from a 240Z, what modifications do I have to make to fit them on my 510 ? It appears that they will not fit without modifying the backing plate but I don't know what to do...Help please.
