TVR Chimaera – Triple Plate Clutch

Another day at the TVR mill got the trigger wheel for the speed sensor tig’ed up had to reduce the slots by half as the dash pro didn’t like the multi slot trigger on the prop shaft went a bit mad after 100mph so needed to get that done and repainted ready to go back on Monday Tuesday, also finally tightened up the sump bolts fitted the flywheel and sorted the clutch need to make a top hat bush for the release bearing carrier to fit the new 40mm i.d. bearing so coming along nicely.

TVR Triple Plate Clutch + Lightweight Flywheel

Clutch foot pressure will be about the same as standard the real advantage is the triple plates lots of surface area and terrific heat dissipation qualities, below is a pic of the new flywheel looks almost to good to use clutch itself will be here next week but been getting on with refitting the sump with new better quality crucifix seals and starting on the water injection install, i have run the pipe from boot to engine bay although not clipped up yet and sorted how all the wiring will connect and run the line lock turned up pm as well looks a nice unit.

More Wedge Engine work

Got a fair bit done over the last couple of days fitted the servo, throttle cable, brake lines and clutch line, rad is in as is the Cerbera fan, made a nice stainless boss for a later type otter switch which is all now wired in works well engine has been up to temp three times water leak on plenum was the first problem now cured then the inoperative fan switch seemed fine under test but wouldn’t switch any load.
