16V flywheel/clutch differences


Recommended Posts

OK, so I learned a lesson today. I was attempting to assemble my new clutch to my flywheel on my 16V engine. In this car I am not using the Getrag, I have swapped to an A568. I knew that the dust tins were different, but I thought that was just because of the transmission...NOPE! The 16V uses a LARGER flywheel than the other Turbo Mopar cars. Not only does the clutch not bolt up, but the entire flywheel is too big for the bellhousing! 

 

So, I just wanted to share that little tid-bit with everyone in case you might have a 16V car that you are planning to swap the transmission on.

Here is an experience that could have been avoided if you were a member of the TC America club. So many people here on AACA would benefit from membership.

I have meant to join a few times, but just never have. I need to check back in to see if they have gotten the online membership thing working. Honestly, that was my hold-up...being able to send my payment.

Oh, and you were one of the first people I thought of to ask, but I was in a time crunch and I didn't know if you were available.

Thanks Reaper1 that’s another good reason to swap to a large spline 523 when my clutch eventually goes. For now I baby it which is no fun. I have a different car fun fun though I guess. I swapped a 2.4 turbo into a 91 Spirit R/T. That’s kind of the way to go now. Every bolt on part available and more power out of the box. Mines a very modest build for daily driving. Just need to finish up the AC before next SDAC and I’ll take the whole family with in it. 42DF5A9D-8402-45C5-9736-5BF25605BCA4.thumb.jpeg.4e7c487bc59f04a5f398da9f302bf967.jpeg

Incase anyone’s interested Jackson sells laser cut powder coated conversion mounts for $250 shipped. For both early and late TC’s. They bolt in and great and the engine will be centered and level. He’s a chassis fabricator. The cam driven distributor conversion is also bolt on and go. Very simple to swap in a 2.4 now days.2660B865-F1CA-422B-AC1E-CCE0E96457EC.thumb.jpeg.919c34be9e71b3a8fd42bfd5720648b3.jpeg

I have a spare Pt cruiser 2.4 turbo for sale in WI. $750 for the complete engine or $950 with conversion mounts included. Bolt in an easy 300 hp for under $1000. You’ll need a neon srt-4 intake manifold to make it fit it a TCA8BEF2AD-7A4D-4434-819C-24AC3BD3E687.thumb.jpeg.f4b733e51bced70a82b2192a09bc7b4d.jpeg

That looks like it would be a great conversion for a TC. Unfortunately no shop, no lift but too many years. Anyway I’d like to see my 8 valve hit 300K mi. Should make that on the trip to National and back home in September.

I bet you have the most miles ever put on a TC. The best part about the 8v’s and A413’s they are so simple to work on. As long as you have a spare HEP and SMEC power board you should roll 300k easy! I used to keep a spare in my glove box when I daily drove a 8v turbo caravan.
