Clutch pressure plate

Hi All

I have a lightened ginetta GT5 flywheel on my zetec engine, it has a 215mm friction plate but no pressure plate, I have tried to track one down was wondering if anyone could help.

The flywheel is 285mm standard diameter
3 pins at 218mm c/c between them
And has 215mm which fits my mt75 gearbox

Regards Jon

Precision clutch components will be able to sort you out.
I've no association, but have had good service from them recently.
I'll post up their details later when I get home.

Has the flywheel got drillingís for extra locating pegs ?
215mm is a pinto size. If it has other holes for locating pegs it would suggest itís been redrilled for a pinto clutch.

Standard Zetec E is 220mm on the 1.8 and 240mm on the 2.0 and the 130ps 1.8 silvertops.
You can use a fwd clutch with the Mt75 but there is slightly less travel making the clutch a little on or of but not that bad.

With a fwd clutch and Mt75 there is a gap of 20mm between thrust bearing and clutch. Westfield glued a spacer to the thrust bearing. Iíve had two and they work fine. Gbs use a longer clutch pivot pin. Iíve also seen a few other solutions.
With a pinto clutch there will still be a shortfall but not 20mm.

I have a light flywheel off a Ginetta on my Zetec. The pressure plate and clutch plate are off a mk1 Mondeo

I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure
