Hi all,

Looking for advice about changing the clutch on my Flaminia...

I've removed the propshaft and doughnuts but as mine is seized in neutral the output shaft spins freely. This means to undo the nut I need to stop it from spinning. Any advice? I don't want to damage the 'balancer'... I assume it is possible to change the clutch without dropping the entire transaxle?

Cheers!
Dave

You don't need to undo the front nut, just the ones around the housing, which by the looks of it you have already done, then the whole housing should part from the gearbox. You will probably have to move the handbrake cable out of the way and lower the nose of the gearbox a little to get it clear.

If you have anymore hints or snags or photos for doing a Flaminia clutch, I would be very interested. Grin

Thanks

Thanks for pics.

I am just trying to work out what I need to do to remove transaxle. It is on the limit of my experience, so any advice appreciated.

Do I need to clamp doughnut before disconnecting propshaft from clutch housing and if so what did you use? Am I right in saying that only the rear doughnut needs to be disconnected and the propshaft can be moved aside?

Thanks,

Charles

Hi Charles - yes you can just disconnect the rear doughnut to disconnect the prop shaft.

Obviously you will need to also disconnect the brake flexi, the handbrake cable, the gear shaft and connections to the rear suspension as well before you can remove the complete trans.

Have fun!

Thanks Dave.

Not sure about 'fun', it more of a necessity! Grin

I think I will think about it a bit longer, before I actually do something!!!

Cheers Charles

Its really not difficult....but the transaxle is awkward, long and heavy and the C of G is towards the rear so be careful and ensure it is well supported. I believe I am right in saying that Machine Mart sell transmission jacks at an economical for use when a 4 post lift is being used.

Hi all,

Finally got around to disassembling the clutch - see below.

Does anyone know the correct thickness for the clutch friction material?

Cheers
Dave

Finally found time to remove clutch on PF. Note clutch housing is much longer.

Next job to disassemble and check.

The Coupe probably has a longer wheelbase than the GT I guess - hence the difference

I also noticed your clutch disc is different - yours has springs around the centre. No idea why its different...Anyone?

Just had my clutch disc relined - so will look to get it all balanced next week

Cheers
