Clutch for OM606 in -88 124 Mercedes
Hello, i have recently built a OM606 with Dieselmeken 7,5mm pump and a BW 200sx turbo and put it in a -88 Mercedes 300D with a 5 speed manual gearbox, the whole transmission is stock and the clutch slips something awful.

I am using the OM603 flywheel from the cars original engine on the OM606.

I have read that Sachs 765 is a common upgrade, but is it possible to machine the OM603 flywheel to fit that pressureplate? And if so, what clutchdisc should i use?

Or is there some beefier standard clutchkit that fit without modification? I don´t have any differential lock or brake and i am running standard size tyres so maybe i don´t need a superclutch?

Took the gearbox out of the car today to have a look.
I have found information that says that the Sachs 765 boltcircle diameter is 273mm, looks like the bolts then would end up in the line between the starter ring gear and the actual flywheel, maybe not so good i guess.

I have also been reading about the Sprinter singel mass flywheel kits, but apparently they won´t work if you have the long input shaft wich i belive i have since there is a pilot bearing for the gearbox input shaft in the crankshaft.
Is that because of the "snout" in the center of the flywheel that you see in this picture? https://www.dieselpumpuk.com/shop/clutch...lutch-kit/
Maybe the "snout" could just be machined away in that case?

I tryed to post some pictures but when i click on "add" the frame just reloads and the attatchment is gone for some reason
