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 plate Ford Pinto cover, allowing the engine to mate to 23 spline 1″ Type 9 or Rocket Ford gearboxes.

By reducing the weight of the flywheel over the standard Vauxhall 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). Also includes uprated clutch retaining bolts.

Suitable for use with
Vauxhall 2.0XE Engine to Ford Gearbox Cable Clutch Bellhousing
Vauxhall 2.0XE Engine to Borg Warner T5 Bellhousing
