Flywheel M180
« on: October 28, 2014, 03:58:03 PM »
Does anyone know if a flywheel for a M180 engine can use flywheel with number starting with M127?
It look like the M180 flywheel from 1956 and fits my 1952 220 W187.

I'm a little confused about your question. The flywheel for the W187 220 is unique to that car. You cannot use a 220a/220S flat flywheel as it is "flatter" and the face of it will be closer to the engine, giving you problems with the travel needed for the release bearing. As for a 127 flywheel, I'm not sure which engine this was from since the M 127 had a lot of versions.

Thanks a lot Henry. I have really too many cars and parts  ::). Sorry for the confusement. I am rebuilding a W187 AND Ponton engine from parts "all over". And my first question should be if I can use the flywheel from a 127 engine from a Ponton 220SE on my 180 engine in Ponton 220S. They have different numbers but cant see any difference.
And then I wonder about the difference of the Ponton and W187 engines. (except oil filter and water sideplates. and head cover).  I think the clutch housing is the only big difference (if so), and  the flywheel AND clutch pressure plate (they are different) can be interchangeable.   But not sure.
My problem: for the W187 engine I have only a cracked flywheel and the Ponton only the 220SE 127 flywheel.
I have many dismantled engine of both types but cannot find anymore flywheels :)
