I presume if you need to drill/machine your flywheel you also need to factor in re-balancing.

If it was just re-drilling fixing holes for a clutch...really shouldnt make any odds...and of course you'd assume it was balanced to begin with.

As for machining, again it depends what work was being done. I'm sure most people years ago who had theirs lightened by removing loads on a lathe never bothered re-balancing, which for that work really should be done.

TTV seem to offer flywheels for the larger diameter clutches, or maybe they make one of their clutches too...give them a shout

I have a twin plate quartermaster unit and custom EN14 steel button flywheel/starter ring that I might be persuaded to let go. All engineered as a matched set as a direct replacement for std SD1 components. Spec'd to go on the back of a 5.2 wildcat motor. Bought it many years ago but never used, so long ago that I can't remember the exact spec LOL. I can dig it out later and do some pics if you're interested.
Rover Powered to 11.63sec @ 128mph.

Hi, what money would that be? Im after a unit that will handle about 370bhp, it sounds like its more clutch than I need, thanks for the offer....
