1.5, 1.6, 1.8 Clutch & Flywheel
Posted 07 April 2003 - 03:45 PM
Anyone know whats the difference between the proton clutch and flywheel?
Can a 1.5 use the 1.6 clutch? Or need to change the flywheel? How about
the 1.8? Same with the 1.6, can it use the 1.8?
Any difference in terms of performance, driving issues (leg pain due
clutch in to traffic jam), fuel consumption? Prices, anyone know the

No need to lighten the flywheel, just replace to the lower cc one,
complete set. 1.8 to 1.6, 1.6 to 1.5.

friction area on the flywheel needs to equal the one on the clutch and also
the mounting points for the clutch must be the same as you'll need to
For example if you change the flywheel on a 1.8 Proton you'll need to go to
a smaller diameter clutch too. And it's not a case of which model has a
"better spec" flywheel. If you go to a lighter flywheel, acceleration and
response is better as the flywheel is more or less dead mass once the car
is moving. However you will need more revs and clutch slippage moving the
car from standstill..
