Zetec Clutch

Postby Nourish » Thu Nov 17, 2016 6:43 pm

Buying bits and bobs as I find them and I've just bought a 1996 Escort 1.6 flywheel1996 (Zetec) part No 928M6398AG to go with the Sierra type9 box I have and the ST170 I yet to have.
Now Im thinking of what clutch to look out for and pehaps that depends on what type of actuation - Mechanical or hydraulic . I'd probabley prefer mechanical - modifying the std minor linkage - what do you lot think?

redrill the flywheel to take a 2.0ltr pinto 23 spline clutch and use a cable .standard zetec clutch is too heavy for a cable.

Thanks for the reply, As I've not got the gearbox in the car I can't see where every thing sits, so if I can ask why a cable and not the rods as with the std Morris set up?
I can't get my head round how to fit a cable as the Ford pedals pivot from under the dash - the movement is going the wrong way on the Morris.
Anyone got any pictures?

We go hydraulic with the clutch, much lighter and smoother. Internal or external slave cylinders are available. We only fit the 2.0L Black tops and keep the flywheel and clutch, as is, some swap for other Ford units but I don't really see the point unless building a high reving motor and don't need torque or engine braking.

Now Jonathon you've thrown the cat among the pidgeons! Where ever you read - get rid of the 2.0 Zetec flywheel!! and isnt the blacktop flywheel a dual mass one?
So could I just fit a 1996 Escort 1.6 clutch and maybe a concentric cylinder?

No, the blacktop is a std flywheel and clutch and comes with the cheap new 2.0L engines. A lot of guy's on the RWD Zetec site fit smaller ,lighter units for some reason.

Does the standard Zetec friction plate fit the Type 9 spigot shaft? You will also need to fit a spigot bearing into the end of the crankshaft.

Yes it all fits perfectly, the 'Blacktop' was the last Ford engine to do the "fits to rwd boxes and fwd boxes" thing. After this different bell housings were required

I fitted a lightened zetec flywheel from Dunnell which was supplied redrilled to take a standard Pinto clutch. Capri cable, little bit of bracketry, very nice useable clutch which is good for up to 200 bhp without uprating. (Don't forget to fit a spigot bearing in the crankshaft) 8)
Morris Minor. Dreadful cars.
