I need a favour of a datto fan in Melbourne.
Basically I need to send an A series flywheel and a Toyota clutch to Alloy Race Components near the Morabbin airport for him to make me a custom alloy flywheel for my racecar. I can't wait any longer for my local idiot who has been jerking me around for nearly 9 mths.
So I need someone to donate a flywheel and source a second hand clutch plate (so he can set the dowels and boltholes in the right spot) and get it to John on my behalf.
The flywheel won't be returned as he needs to cut the ring gear off it.
Anyone got a junk flywheel lying around with decnt ring gear? I'll let you know the Toyota model for the clutch plate if anyone can help.

Hope someone can help

Neil

ive got a flywheel you can have, im confused by the other stuff you wrote though, what are you talking about "source a second hand clutch plate" an a-series one or some toyota thing.

and also what are you talking about "I'll let you know the Toyota model for the clutch plate if anyone can help"

anyway ive got all that gear for an a-series spare and could probably take it to morabbin for you if you want later in the week, i live in bayswater where do you live?

let me know what you want to do and maybe explain a bit better, id be happy to help you out anyway


[Edit]

whats the ring gear anyway? im sure ive got it i just dont know what it looks like

p.s. i just saw that you live in perth so now i know why you nedd help

I probably didn't explain it right.

I need the flywheel so Alloy Race Components can copy it and make me a lightweight one for my racecar.
The ring gear is the toothed bit on the flywheel that the starter motor runs on. This piece they cut off the old cast flywheel and shrink onto the new alloy one.

I am running a Toyota clutch as I am running a Toyota 5 speed so he needs a clutch plate so he can drill the bolt holes and put the dowel pins in. If he makes it to fit a Datsun clutch its no good to me. I can't remember what the clutch is out of so I have to check.

I'm in Perth so its alittle difficult for me to get to his workshop to give him the parts. I have spoken to him on the phone about it and he suggested I find someone local (Melbourne) who can get him a flywheel.

Would be great if you can help....no rush....just when its convenient...I have to get that Toyota clutch info first though.

Thanks mate

Neil

I was under the impression you could buy new ringgear anyway?
something along the lines of splitting the old one with a chisel and shrinking the new one into place with a blowtorch. ?
