What, no Convert flywheel weights? I can get those for you if you'd like. Good job!
Has anybody made the flywheel heavier ? I'm thinking that might be good for a sidecar rig. Inertia rings I think they are called. I expect that's just a fancy term for a machined chunk of steel bolted to the flywheel.
The V7/Ambassador/Eldorado flywheel pretty much uses all of the available space in the "bellhousing". At 13 lbs. for just the flywheel (without plates, springs and cover plate/ring gear) it's plenty heavy for sidecar duty.
Assume this is just the flywheel and not the ring gear or anything else. Which I guess is a constant anyway.Kev
Sorry for the noob question... Are these all interchangeable?
The V7/Ambassador/Eldorado ring gear is heavier as well.
I have my guzzioligy book already. Used it for my last cylinder replacement . Thanks for the help!
Charlie,I have read before that the first bikes had heavier ring gears, but don't know the exact history.MG Cycle lists part number 17067900 as suitable for all the M8 screw models, including the Ambo and Eldo right through the Vintage, and says it weighs ~4.6 lbs. (2.09kg).They also list a substitute number 12067900 for all the same models. They say this one weighs 4.73 pounds (2.15kg).Am I right in thinking 12067900 is really the Ambo/Eldo item and 17067900 the one for the later bikes? What about the V7 Sport of 1974 and the T? Do you have better weight figures than MG Cycle's? If so, I'll add it to the table.MotoP.S. The ring gear (strangely listed as a "chain ring") for the V11, the Griso and all the 2V Carcs is 01067930. Stein-Dinse lists its weight at 1.6kg (it could be a shipping weight). Any other info?
That aftermarket 12067900 is quite a bit different than an original, looks like some material has been machine away on the outer side and the holes are larger. I'll weigh the Convert flywheels and some o.e. ring gears later today.
The 8v clutch is build completely different, so flywheel is irrelevant. Complete it is 6.3kg, the starter ring alone is 538 grams from that.
I like the idea of a heavy flywheel for the relatively relaxed riding that I do. Any guesses as to the weight of my 8V Norge's flywheel?
See the 8V line in the revised table. Update: Checking some 8V parts diagrams I now see that there are different part numbers for the California 1400, Griso 1200, and Norge 1200, though the pictures look the same. I don't know if the weights differ, and I'm not sure which 8V clutch Paul weighed.
