Doblo 03 JTD - Dual Mass Flywheel to Solid State Flywheel

Well the dual mass flywheel has finally given up the ghost today and left me stranded for the second time in 8 years.

now the van is just going to be sat idle until the company i have found who make the solid state flywheel and clutch deliver this item.

i have payed for the Solid state flywheel and clutch conversion kit and as soon as this enters my palms and is successfully fitted i may just be able to point people in the right direction for this part at long last.

for those that are interested in this part, please keep an eye on this thread.

details will be posted as soon as i have them.

i have payed 410 including delivery so far from a trusted ebay seller (found by google) the cost for fitting has yet to be agreed!!

the flywheel i have is an original factory fitted part which has covered 84.000 heavy torqued miles (first 20k were very smooth ) unitl i learn t about tuning etc.

anyways

Re: Doblo 03 JTD - Dual Mass Flywheel to Solid State Flywheel

Thanks for that news. I've done 90,000 and my clutch is ever-present in my mind. I haven't done any tuning other thatn the Italian variety of course, but I do soemtimes go for it

I am probably going to get a Dacia Duster in January and I need the old Dobbie to keep going till then. The tailgate struts are tired, the rear wiper doesn't work, the central locking on the tailgate has packed up, and the brake pipes may need replacing at the MOT in September. The rear section of the exhaust is original and looking very red too

Why the Duster by the way? Because it's the nearest replacemet for the Doblo. Same performance, same insurance, less tax and better economy - otherwise does pretty much the same job - with great ground clearance. I've looked at the alternatives, but none quite ticks the boxes. Fiats are great of course, but just too expensive. It's a shame, but what to do?

Re: Doblo 03 JTD - Dual Mass Flywheel to Solid State Flywheel

Hmmm....... Is that particular engine used in any other model ?? Maybe get one from a breakers ?? Have you tried Motorhog at Doncaster ?? They seem to be very active breakers.......The man to ask for is 'Eggy' !.....very helpful fella !
Or maybe modify a solid flywheel from a close match ?? I bet there's something out there that's a close match.....just a bit of detective work and some measuring,eh ??

If you wanna p.m. me a few details of your van....chassis number /reg number,year etc and which exact engine it is,I'll see what I can drum up on my travels ?? There's gotta be something out there !!
(Might be going over to Motorhog myself in the next couple of days,for some bits for a Rover 45 that I've just bought....so I can ask my mate over there.)

Re: Doblo 03 JTD - Dual Mass Flywheel to Solid State Flywheel

Just had a look on eek bay and there are a few flywheels on there,including 1 new one @ 144....Plus there are quite a few 'breakers' being advertised on there. Quite possible that one of those will fit the bill ??

I believe that sold flywheels are readily available for Vauxhall applications of the 1.9 engine from varius tuners / rally parts places.
