I was just chatting to a guy from a scrap yard who has a 1600t/p from an early 70's 1302 beetle. Anyone know what size flywheel it would have?

I want to replace the 1500 single port in my 1966 splitie which has an 'H' engine code. I'm assuming they are both 200mm but I was hoping someone might be able to confirm it for me.

Cheers

The outside diameter of both flywheels will be the same, but if your 66 is 6 volt, the number of teeth on the outside edge will be different. Both the 1500 & 1600 engines will have a flywheel which takes a 200 mm Clutch.

flywheel will be the same, but the internal clutch size may differ,as mine did. My old 1600 TP had a 215mm clutch, and it didnt fit on my new engine flywheel ('71 -'73 engine),so had to get a 200mm clutch and pressure plate, so check first

Im 12v so thats cool, and I was planning on putting a new clutch in at the same time. Whats the deal with the pressure plates. Is it something to do with throw out bearings?

Will I need one of those engine mount things too?

The clutch off your 1500 engine will fit the new one, so use it, because it is already matched to the Release (throw-out) bearing in the gearbox bellhousing. Both the 1600 from a '70's 1302S, and the 1500 SP engine will have 200 mm diameter clutches, (unless someone has transplanted a much later flywheel which uses the 215 mm diameter clutch).
If your van does not currently have a rear engine mount, then you don't need to add one.
If you do have a rear engine mount, check the new engine, to see if it has the cast & tapped bosses on the casing to accept the mounting bar, if not, you will need the adaptor.

I know people who have done that too, because they were too tight to buy a new 200 mm clutch. All that messing, changing flywheel, re-setting end float, so they could use an old 180 mm clutch, which will slip when asked to work hard. :rolleyes:
