I bought a spare 2.0L twin cam engine and in the box of bits that came with it was a very odd flywheel that looks like the flywheel from a Alfetta or Giulietta that has been modified to take a regular clutch assembly - Its been drilled to take the clutch cover etc. The pressure plate face on the flywheel is 24.5mm wide and on the clutch cover 35mm.

Intrigued as to whether or not anyone has come across this before. The engine was supposedly from a Spider and did have a RWD athough I have not tried to fit the two together yet.

Six bolts for the flywheel and then the three tappings just outside them for the usual transaxle prop fixing

I will try and sort out a picture tomorrow.

The clutch plate is matched to the cover at 35mm wide so on the flywheel side its only a part of the friction material that makes contact.

Sounds like its a bodge up from some enterprising individual with a determination to get an Alfetta engine mated to a Spider box.

Cheers

I'm not very familiar with the Alfetta flywheels, but would guess they are a lot lighter up front than a 105/115 type? Maybe someone was trying to make a cheap, light flywheel for a spider?

Here it is - has 116 cast in it so definately Alfetta type flywheel - as for weight - its 16lb so not so light
