Ford Zetec E Lightweight Steel Flywheel
Ford Zetec E * lightweight steel flywheel to suit standard 220mm diameter Zetec E clutch cover and Ford 8 1/2″ clutch plate or Ford Pinto 8 1/2″ clutch plate and cover (comes pre-drilled to suit either option). Machined from billet steel, our flywheels feature an integral ring gear. Much lighter than the original flywheel this flywheel is suitable for a standard or uprated Ford 8 1/2″ clutch.
By reducing the weight of the flywheel over the standard Zetec E 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). Comes with inductive pulse pick-up
