12 bolt fly wheel on 6 bolt crank?

PostPost by: Plus2soon » Tue Apr 04, 2017 2:37 pm

Hello Elaners,

I have recently bought a 12 bolt QED steel fly wheel. It is never used en came with a new ring gear fitted.
Can I use this to my 6 bolt crank? I will not pass 7200 rpm as the crank is a cast stock 1600 one.
Any thoughts?

Peter at MWE who have been building these engines in the US since the 70's told me this was no problem, but others may have more empirical input...
