Vauxhall 2.0XE Lightweight Steel Flywheel Standard Cover
Vauxhall 2.0XE (red top) lightweight steel flywheel to suit Ford 8 1/2″ friction clutch plate and standard Vauxhall cover. 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 and the standard Vauxhall 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.
