Hi need your help again the PO of my 240Z did change the flywheel for a 11pound aluminum

Jean, I can't say for sure with out some measurements but that flywheel will probably take a standard clutch kit, but first off you need to take the fly wheel to a shop and see if there is enough meat left on it so that it can be turned flat again, you can't use it the way it is.

At least from the photo it looks grooved.

Looks like a Tilton to me.  There should be that manufacturers name stamped on it along with the Nissan part number 12310-F1011 for the 225mm unit and 12310-F1013  for the 240mm unit.  The replacement friction center is Nissan part number  12311-F1011 for the 225mm.  The replacement friction center for the 240mm is NLA.

Yes, I was was just looking at the exact same pictures at Hybrid Z. The Fidanza has a thicker crank hub boss on the backside, like the OP's picture . My Audi Fidanza aluminium flywheel has the same thick boss area. It's tough to call though.

If no identifying marks can be found it. Might be an idea for the OP to send the pictures to Tilton and Fidanza to see if they can make a positive ID.

Had a original Tilton aluminium Flywheel on my Race Datsun 1200 back in the mid 70's and one on my Autocross 1971 Camaro RS. Very nice piece of kit.

I have a Tilton. It has a slight "TL" looking engraving on the front. Just had it resurfaced and  my machinist said he could go down to the screw heads holding the disc on. He removed the dowls and resurfaced it with the disc in place. I can put up a picture in the morning but it's my bedtime now, sorry.

Well siteunseen you will look a bit dumb once in a while when you

stop a the a red light or stop letting go the gas a bit to promtly the engine will stall.

but this is not a big deal. I am putting back my engine in this weekend then allignement next week

And the orange Z of Magog will be back on the streets. So much work done this winter

you woudnt beleive.

not sure the total finished weight of your aluminum flywheels, but i have a 2+2 setup (larger diameter) that i had lightened considerably and while i can definitely notice the motor spins up much more quickly i've never had a problem w/stalling. it idles nicely at 700rpm and on flat ground i can start off without my foot on the accelerator at all. this is, of course an L28 so maybe a bit more torque than the L24 i suppose...
