250 xflow clutch plate, flywheel problem

Hello all,

I've trying to put the clutch assembly onto the flywheel on a 250 xflow, but there is one problem.
When I place the clutch plate onto the flywheel on the side that says 'flywheel side' the actual contact surface doesn't touch the flywheel, but instead the spring assembly and all the bits in the middle stop it from touching.

The whole clutch assembly is a brand spanker I purchased off ebay, and the flywheel is a second hand one that my machinist had cleaned up before balancing.
It is the flat side of the plate that goes against the flywheel because this is the side that indicates so isn't it?? If I spin the plate around then it would go together perfectly....

I am really confused as I don't have any experience with this sort of thing, could some please help me out

Much appreciated

Regards
Benno

Re: 250 xflow clutch plate, flywheel problem

Well I went to the local ford wreckers today to have a look at some different flywheels to see if I could find some further insight into this problem.

It seems there is a few different flywheels for the 250 xflow, one has a recessed ring on the inside which my clutch plate would fit nicely. I also found other flywheels without this recessed section, alas my disc would not fit these but a smaller version would go on.

My flywheel has this ring on it so my disc would have fit nicely, but it seems my machinist must have removed too much metal ??

Nonetheless he has the flywheel now and is going to machine the inside out so the disc will fit.

If anyone has any comments on this feel free. lol
Well considering the amount of reply's to my last post I don't know

Ciao for now
Benno
