Engine fitting probs

593 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Camper Dave
I've got a spare engine that I'm trying to fit to my project bug. Only prob is the flywheel doesn't seem to want to fit. This is a 1300 '66 bug and the engine I'm trying to fit is a mish mash. 12volt 1600 built onto a 1300 case.

Is there anyway to check the flywheel size (i.e. 180 or 200mm) without taking the pressure plate off? I know there's sometimes a prob with fitting a 200mm flywheel to a 1300 box.

Am I right in thinking I can clearence the box a bit to accomodate the flywheel? It seems to be catching around where the engine bolts run through the bell housing.

The difference in flywheel size is between 6v and 12v, not between the clutch sizes of 180/200mm. This might help you with the grinding............
Sweet. Cheers moby, I'll go have a nosey and see if I can get it sorted.
Read the 6V/12V Conversion article on my web site for
more "gotchas":
