Attached, are few photos for reference with the old flywheel and P. Plate.

I am having difficulties with the clutch and flywheel installation, as I am almost 9mm
below the level I think I ought to be. Any thoughts?

Are the 3 nuts on the 3 arms on the pressure ring, where the release bearing goes on the pressure plate, adjustable?
They appear to be but don't want to fiddle unnecessarily.

In a 1750 installation, am I supposed to use the thick / thin flange between gearbox and engine?
Thank you for the kind help.

regards,
Alberto

Don’t forget to to deduct the thickness of your vernier caliper your using as a parallel, looks like 2-3mm thick.

IIRC I had some new or rebuilt Sachs pressure plates that had 3 steel staples for storage/transport to keep the springs from fully extending that needed to be removed before installation ... I think they were in the outer hinges ... you might want to check for that

I don't know if your supposed to adjust the three nuts, but yes, you can. I did that when my throw-out fork had bent a bit and my clutch wasn't fully releasing - I could reach the nuts with the transmission installed, but would have had to remove the transmission to remove the throw-out fork.

Hello Jay and Jim, the transmission is out of the car, and yes, I'll reach out to Gordon.

Hello Raymond,
as you can see from the pix, my pp is very different from the others.
I think we need to converse a while on this subject.
If I may, I would like to ring you, as writing will take forever.
So, if OK, can you send me your contact via a PM?
Thank you.
Regards, Alberto

I think you need to measure the height from the friction surface to the top were the pressure plate bolts up on both flywheels.

Thank you all, on Monday, I will post a more thorough photographic essay.

Happy Sunday! Alberto

The 1300/1600 clutch assemblies are not strong enough for a 1750. (Torque capacity). You should be using a 1750 flywheel with the 110 tooth ring gear replaced with a 105 tooth ring gear (Same ID) for the 1300/1600 starter and the hydraulic release bearing as used in the 1750 & 2L, and the adaptor sold by Centerlinealfa.com to work with the mechanical linkage.

Raymond, RJ is right, it is a 1750, as per thread title.

That's unfortunate Raymond, as I found them very enlightening and educational, as most probably did.

Thank you anyhow for your time and effort.

Kind regards, Alberto

Found a better solution, and as I had 2 original AD flywheels, will use the one without the starter ring gear, and install the one shown in the pictures.
It is 215mm in diameter, will use a modern pressure plate and
the Centerline adaptor for the hydraulic bearing.

Only issue, I ignore a 'proper way' of installing the new ring gear, oven, press?

Please, your thoughts. Thank you
Regards, Alberto

How did you get it off? I press them on/off and will sometimes pin them on aluminum wheels. Not sure why I only sometimes pin them on aluminum. Maybe they went on too easy?
