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.
