    Default R17 Gordini Clutch & Flywheel

    I don't have the box out of the car at the moment so can't do any measurements, but can anyone confirm the clutch diameter on the 807 engine/365 box combo, is it a 215mm or 185mm?

    Mecaparts has their horrendously expensive kits listed as 215mm, but I have also come across 185mm kits.

    Also, has anyone had any experience with the TTV lightened flywheels? They have a 185mm one listed for the Alpine A110 1600, so presumably the same as the 807 engines from the 17's.

    For a stock 844 motor out of an R1317 17TS/G, it is a 215mm clutch, so just check what clutch your 807 motor is.

    I'm not sure if this is going to confuse you or help you.

    I have just measured the clutch diameters of 807 engines that I have here and they measure up at 200mm.

    I have a clutch plate here that is marked R12 sedan/wagon and it measures up at 185mm.

    I thought the R12 had a 180mm clutch. I'm currently attempting to to see if TTV has a flywheel suitable for my K4M install.

    1.4’s were 180; 1289’s were 170mm I believe. The 1108’s were 160mm.

    R10 1300 is definitely 170 mm as I've just measured it. And yes, 160 mm for the R8 1100 and I think ALL earlier RERs. Adequate for the 4CV obviously....

    I guess I should go with the "go measure it" approach when I pull the box for a rebuild

    Have a look at the engine & gearbox code and you will probably have a guess at what it is.

    Its either a 200mm or a 215mm.

    But to be 100% sure the measuring it is the way to go.

    I have just installed a complete Valeo clutch kit in my R12 Gordini replica, 807 motor, 200mm driven plate. sourced from Ken Bailey - just under $200 plus freight. Should be the same as R17. Give him a call 0400 566119.

    Cheers, Fred.

    Agree, talk to Ken. From memory, a 17TS/G uses a 16TS clutch plate, Fuego pressure plate and 17 throw out bearing. I may have got the pressure plate/clutch plate combo the wrong way round.

    That combo does actually sound familiar, I think I've read it somewhere before.

    Thanks to the knowledge bank again
