So it seems that the dual mass flywheel in my 2001 Gu has crapped itself...

So along comes the Safari Tuff single mass conversion..... Ive heard good stuff about them..

Got the flywheel and clutch kit for 1400 and being installed for 500 including a rear main seal...

Will let you know how it feels next week...


Happy driving

Be aware that a solid flywheel may give you an engine vibration at a certain rev, not all react the same way and some are worse than others, there is info and a poll on solid flywheels on ZD30's in the DI archives in polls and surveys.

Ok old flywheel gone... New Safari tuff clutch and solid flywheel in..... All up cost, $1995...

must say there is a little more noise and very slight extra vibration..... but i seem to have more torque though only slightly, that may just be that the clutch is no longer slipping.

So the GU 3ltr DI seems to be responding better, and has a very light smooth clutch.. Will be taking it out bush for a couple of days soon...
