I have an 83 dl front wheel drive and I'm getting ready to do the clutch this weekend. I have a spare engine off 84 GL 4WD. Can I/ should I use the flywheel from the 84 GL, which takes a bigger clutch and use it on my dl. Is this doable or even desirable.

I pulled the 84 flywheel for resurfacing tomorrow, but I won't do that if it's not a good idea to go with the bigger clutch.

If I stay with my present flywheel, I might not be able to have it resurfaced. How important is that?

Doc, you can fit this to your car it's straightforward, but unless you are planning to change the gearbox also, not adviseable as the bigger clutch is a 21 splined unit as opposed to the smaller clutch, (19, l think), so your standard box will not mate up to your engine if you do fit the bigger unit. If you are still unsure, count the number of splines inside the clutch plate and then on the gearbox input shaft.

Thanks, Red. "Small is beautiful" as EF Schumacher said. I'll keep my smaller clutch.
