DetailsThe FWD Zetec engine has a slim clutch and small flywheel offset when compared to a typical RWD installation. When installed on a Type E 4 speed or Type 9 5 speed gearbox and bellhousing, the clutch fork and bearing will be too far away from the clutch cover. Also note that the original Zetec clutch is designed for a different ratio release arm to a RWD gearbox, resulting in very little pedal travel and problems with the cable jumping out. To over come this, simply use this flywheel with a 2.0 Pinto clutch and the clutch will be set at the correct height for the bearing. Note you must also use a RWD starter motor and FZ450 flywheel bolts.
Flywheel weight: 6.1kg (6.8kg with ring gear)
Crank fitment: 6 bolt crank
Clutch fitment: 216mm (8.5") SOHC Pinto clutch
Ring gear part number (pre-engaged, 135 teeth): FT257B
Original equipment cast iron flywheels are invariably too heavy and, when lightened, should carry a government health warning! A steel flywheel is a must for any high performance high revving engine and we carry an extensive range covering most popular engine applications. All our flywheels are manufactured in EN8 steel (annealed) and machined on the latest CNC machinery to very close tolerances. They are supplied without ring gears and dowels which can be purchased separately if required.
If you require a flywheel with the ring gear fitted, order part number FZ250RGFord Zetec E 16v Silver Top -05/98
