im just wondering im in the middle of a 5 speed swap, and im swappin an idi zf in my 97. well iwas hoping the clutch assembly would swap but it wont. so i was lookin at just fly wheels and the solids are so much cheaper, but it says needs to be converted to a solid clutch setup. my ? is whats the difference in the clutch setup?

If it were me I would do the swap to the solid flywheel now. Chances are you will do it eventually cause the dual mass flywheels are known to come apart.

thanks for the reply but thats not what iwas tryin to get at. sorry should have worded it better. i have a dual mass setup now on the 94 idi im gettin the 5 speed from. i was hoping they would interchange but the flywheel bolt pattern is different. i was looking at just getting a flywheel and when i was pricing them the solid was much cheaper, but it said must change to a solid flywheel clutch setup. well the one in the idi was changed about three months ago its still good. i was wondering why i couldnt use that disc and pressure plate with a soild flywheel. is there really a big difference?

I believe you would run into a balancing issue.

i havent a clue im gonna get the fly wheel and see how it goes. the dual mass looks like any other clutch ive seen. if some one had a pic of the two it would help. i just dont see how there would be such a big difference. i dont know ive always delt with clutches in gassers. never had to deal with on in a diesel.

I believe the factory dual mass disc is 12.25 or12.5" and the single is a full 13. At least in the LUK flywheel/plate/disc kits.
