Dual mass flywheel to solid flywheel conversion kit. This kit is made to replace the dual mass flywheel fitted by the manufacturer. Dual mass flywheels are renowned for failure and are usually replaced when the clutch needs changing, which can be very expensive. This conversion kit is a single flywheel which eliminates the weak point of the transmission, so if the clutch wears out you only have to replace the clutch and not the flywheel saving you vast amounts of money in parts and labour. Each kit contains the following items clutch cover, clutch plate, clutch bearing (or CSC), solid flywheel, clutch cover bolts and modified flywheel bolts if required.
Modern diesel engines generate high torque and as a result they need extra smoothing out or damping. To help with this process a DMF (Dual Mass Flywheel) is fitted. This is effectively two flywheels that transmit the drive through a number of springs which cushion the drive to the transmission.
The release bearing is a bearing fixed on the shaft going into the gearbox it is movable along it. It is operated when you push clutch pedal to floor and cause the clutch mechanism to operate thus stopping driving force from engine being carried through to gears.
The concentric slave cylinder assembly is designed to operate directly in front of the clutch cover assembly.
The unique design eliminates the need for complex and sometimes expensive clutch release fork and linkage mechanisms.
Direct hydraulic load applied to the clutch via the master cylinder and concentric slave cylinder provides less pedal effort, and overcomes the possible loss of bearing travel due to wear often associated with conventional linkage or cable type systems.
The clutch plate is sandwiched between the pressure plate and the flywheel. When you push in the clutch, the clutch plate moves away from the flywheel, because a series of springs and bearings pulls the pressure plate back. When you release the clutch pedal, the pressure plate is engaged by the springs and then pushes against the clutch plate. When engaged, the pressure plate forces the flywheel and clutch together. A clutch plate is designed to handle different levels of force and apply different ranges of friction depending on its design and its materials.
