I don't see why since I'm using the b2200 bell. I need to go to a junk yard and pick up a cheap flywheel/clutch before I buy 20lb worth of scrap metal.

yeah that was my plan was to get a used OEM set and see if it'll fit. i'd prefer going with the rx7 combo because it opens up options for performance clutch kits.

I didn't have a problem at all finding a 6-puck clutch for a b2200/ non-turbo mx6. The spine on the non-turbo rx7 is the same as the one for the b2200 - lx/dx mx6.

I just test fit with a $118 clutch from auto zone and flywheel from a friend, works fine as much as I can tell, when I spun the engine the transmission spun with it. Will be returning the clutch as its still brand new and I'm upgrading. Is there anything else I need to check for??
My friend has pictures on his camera of it all test fit together. I don't know when I'll have them up though.
I heard that the starter will not mesh for some reason. I guess I'm going to find out.
I Just put a down payment on my megasquirt kit from the bulk buy on probetalk.com. He said he's really backed up though so his estimate on when mine will be done was 4-8 weeks. Its ok though I still have a lot to do once I get my my engine all bolted together. Oh speaking of which you can't use all the mx6 bolts for the b2200 bell. the bolts are way shorter for it. I may have to buy some or head out to a junk yard to find some more.

Let me know if you have any updates on yours.

Hey who do I talk to to get the name of my thread changed? This build is obviously going somewhere. And If I don't make it, I sure laid the foundation/guess/test work down so someone will finish.
It will have to take something semi big to get me to stop now, I really want to finish this.

yeah i know the bolts are smaller. i think i saw that on cosborne's thread or he told me in a PM maybe? i dont remember. i figure i'll try the b2200 bolts i have when i get there.

i should probably start to reassemble the oil pan and such

Yeah It looks like I'm using an awful lot of b2200 parts. Luckily I have a friend with tons of those parts. He is almost like me with all my mx6 parts. I think I'm going to buy some engine motor-mounts off him. I believe it may simplify the install.

I was deciding on what kind of sensor I wanted for my crank and I came across this:

Hall vs. VR: Which speed sensor is wrong for you? - Electronic Products

Its a really good read and It helped me make up my mind.

you don't need that if you do a modified distributor right?

i've got a hole cut in the firewall for my dizzy to poke through so i can just keep using that.

I didn't want to cut. But since you've done it did you mess anything up in the process? like the heater core or something. You can just keep the base of the disty (the part with all the sensors) and not cut a hole in the firewall?

I got to have my a/c, I live in texas. No Heat I may be able to deal with, but it will get really cold on long trips. I plan on driving this car at least 5 hours away.

we get heat similar to what you get down there. i've learned to live with it. (neither of my first two cars had a/c)

as for heat, we get horrible winters here but i won't be driving the rx7 during those months.

RX-7 clutch and f2t/ vulcan clutch are the same object. Gear spacing and parts are supposed to be the same also, but I don't have an rx7II trans to confirm.

Well he's not going to be using the rx7 Turbo II bell housing because it doesn't bolt up to the f2t block as far as I understand. So he can't use the clutch for the turbo II.
