Kupplungs-Kits 1.3i , was passt und was nicht ?
Und zur Klärung des Kundenproblems sei noch hinzugefügt, daß im Grundsatz Kit GCK152MS Valeo enthalten sollte, jedoch große Restbestände bei UNIPART leider mit gemischtem Inhalt versehen worden war, so daß ein 'teils teils' entstand.

VERTO CLUTCHES- ALTERNATIVES AND DIFFERENCES.
This article has been written owing to the increasing amount of people who ring Mini Spares stating that their
1275cc Injection type mini will not start after fitting a new clutch when they have purchased the parts from
another supplier, usually a motor factoring company, rather than a specialist..
There are 2 types of Pressure plates, namely AP (Automotive Products) and Valeo.
AP type pressure plates CANNOT be fitted to any original Injection engine flywheels as they will be out of
position when bolted to the centre hub cone (held on by 6 bolts)
VALEO pressures are made to fit ALL original Injection engine flywheels but will also fit any earlier Carburetor
versions as the pick up for the ECU is not used..
Injection cars use a reluctor ring on the flywheel to trigger the sensors for the ECU and the Valeo pressure plate
has the cone bolt holes in a different position to the AP pressure plate so look at the chart to check what has
come off your car and what is going back on.
Line up any of the 2 holes at the top and check with our chart to see how differently they are positioned..
The two different types look so different with the Valeo flywheel to pressure plate bolting rim perfectly flat
whereas the AP is pressed with cut outs and a 9 bolt reinforcement ring.
The centre cone hub is the same on all cars.
Verto Clutch plate fitment is much simpler,
There are 2 widths-180mm wide and 190mm wide .
180mm wide was fitted on 998cc and 190mm wide to 1275cc.
The mating surface for the clutch plate on both the pressure plates are 190mm wide so if the flywheel is perfect
either size plate would fit.
Our clutches are as follows
GCK151AF AP product with 180mm plate
GCK151MS Valeo product with 180mm plate
GCK152MS Valeo product with 190mm plate.
The 190mm Valeo clutch plate has the best friction surface
AP pressures plates have the best clamping pressure but NOT for Inection cars unless flywheels with specially
modified repositioned reluctor rings are used. .
