    I'm not sure. Just know that it made very loud vibrating noises that you could hear a mile away! Very scary so got it changed

    Good deal. Are they only doing flywheel or flywheel + clutch?

    got my car back today from my friends garage after fitting my recon turbo+new gaskets. New Sachs flywheel and clutch and slave, also fitted a new starter motor and a new egr oil cooler. plus oil and filter change.

    old flywheel was completely knacked loads of play up down and side to side. clutch wasn't to bad.

    fitted new starter and egr cooler due to milage of car.
    starts fine when warm now and will see if the engine shacks tomo but all should be good i hope.
    gearbox has to much play in the input shaft so have sorced a recon box to fit in a few weeks.
    Have changed both drive shafts and done cam belt and water pump since bought car a few months ago...
    hopefully when box is in that will be it for abit.

    WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE LOADS OF PLAY IN THE INPUT SHAFT OF THE GEARBOX....
