I'm using a Monza Clutch on the 2.4 and that fits the standard five speed box without a problem, sure it's a Monza Plate?

Hi,

I'm no expert on Monza's but I do know there are two different sets of splines, one has ten the other 22 (I think, been a long time since I played with one!!) I think the ten splined one is from the early Monza and the 22 from later cars, there is also a difference in clutch plate diameters, the GSE has the larger clutch at 240mm, the 3.0E and lesser model Monza's have a smaller one, 233mm I think, again from memory!! The ten spline 240mm clutch plate is really hard to get these days, the smaller one is readily available through Ebay and I believe they all fit the flywheel OK?

If it helps, there are certain Volvo 260's which use the same driven plate and also some of the early 'E' Type jaguars, although they charge the earth for those!! I do have a manual Monza I will be breaking later this year if you get stuck but I doubt I'll find the time to start on it until September??

Cheers,

Alf.

that would make sense my box came out of a gse , so if I get the 233mm clutch will this fit the gte 240 box?

three types of input shaft splines on the 265 gearbox.

course = bmw type clutch plate

medium = opel

fine = jaguar and ford fitting

I used C+G clutches in leeds he will make anything you require, if you have a good centre with correct splines he will put the outer from what ever fits in the diameter range within a couple of mm.

I had a ford centre ( jaguar 265) no springs in centre withfive ceramic pads for £80. bargain
