Ford Twin Cam Lightweight Steel Flywheel to suit Pinto 8 1/2″ Clutch
Ford twin cam lightweight steel flywheel to suit Ford 8 1/2″ clutch. Machined from billet steel, our flywheels feature an integral ring gear. At 4.4Kg this flywheel is much lighter than the original flywheel. The flywheel is suitable for a standard or uprated Ford X-flow 8 1/2″ cutch plate and clutch cover.
By reducing the weight of the flywheel over the standard Ford Twin Cam item to as little as a half, the resulting reduced inertia gives better acceleration, especially in the lower gears. In addition, the reduced weight at the flywheel edges allows quicker gear changes, and increased engine braking. Comes with integral starter ring (ring gear is machined into the flywheel).
