is anything special needed to do the swap?

im assuming that all the non intercooled L series use the small clutch dia? could i swap in a fly and clutch from something like the ZR to get a bigger clutch and is the Crank sensor pickups the same pattern ect.


thank you please :D

i thought all the l series diesels use the larger t16 clutch as standard?

i could be wrong.

Generally only the intercooled versions used 228mm clutch.

Fair enough then, I would have thought any intercooled flywheel/ clutch will fit from any model rover as all the gearboxes are the same and the crank on the engines are the same

Sadly it is a bit more complicated.

The crank sensor on the non intercooled models is different to all the intercooled ones. And the flywheel is different too.

You have two options.

Re-drill the original flywheel to fit the larger clutch (this would be my preferred option)
Use the intercooled flywheel and larger clutch but then faff about spacing the crank sensor away from the flywheel by the correct amount to make it work properly. This works but can be a faff. Too close and you'll destroy the sensor which isn't easy to find as it is peculiar to the non intercooled models.

if your going to remove the flywheel why not replace the adapter plate on the engine as well so you will have all the correct spacings and the use of the standard sensor??

Because the standard sensor doesn't work with the non intercooled ECU. (It is different to the others).
