Q & A

What's in the Box

Don't sacrifice your acceleration due to a heavy flywheel. For 1955-1985 internally balanced 153 tooth small block Chevy applications.

  • 16.8 lbs
  • Typically used with 10-1/2" Ram solid hub clutch disc 605-351 and pressure plate 605-401
  • Will also work with a Ram 605-301M sprung hub or 605-1021 6-pad clutch disc

Notes

NOTE: 

Not For Use w/Stock Clutch Disc, use 10 1/2" Ram Clutch and Pressure Plate, 605-301M or 605-1021 Only.

This flywheel is not compatible with stock type sprung hub clutch discs (5 or 6 springs). A performance type disc with 8 springs must be used. Or aftermarket flywheel bolts like ARP or Mr. Gasket will work with the 5 or 6 spring clutch.

Performance and SFI-approved flywheels must be used with performance clutch discs only. Use of a stock-style clutch disk with a performance flywheel will often result in insufficient operating clearance between the disc hub and flywheel bolts.

Ram Clutches 1510-10 55-85 Chevy Light Billet Steel Flywheel-153 Tooth
                        

These Ram 10 lb. racing flywheels are made of billet steel, not a cast stock piece cut down. Will work with 10.5" B&B or diaphram style pressure plates. These flywheels MUST use a solid hub friction plate (sprung hubs will not clear).

Note: This flywheel requires very short bolts for mounting, as it is very 'thin' in the center. Use ARP flexplate bolts # 101-2002902.

Ram 251 10.5 Inch Organic Clutch Disc, Solid Hub, 1-1/8 Inch 10-Spline
                        

10-1/2", single clutch disc. Organic disc for single disc pressure plate, weighs 2.5 lbs. Full face design with solid hub.

  • 1-1/8"-10 Spline
  • 2.5 lbs.

Tech Tip:  When installing a new clutch, be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for correct set-up.  You should also replace the pilot bushing/bearing.

Tech Tip:  To extend the life of your expensive racing clutch you should not use it to load the car on or in your trailer.  The amount of slippage this causes is worse than a night of racing.

Ram Clutches 401 10-1/2 Inch GM Pressure Plate, Nodular Ring 17.5 Lbs
                        

Ram clutches for 'stock clutch rule' classes give you unmatched performance and durability. These 10.5 inch diameter assemblies utilize a nodular iron pressure ring which provides a durable mating surface for the clutch disc. A 2800 lb. pressure spring provides increased static pressure over stock clutches. 

If your rules require a full facing or sprung hub disc, the RAM 300 Series organic racing disc provides the best holding power of any organic disc available and adds only about 2 pounds to the total weight of the set.

All Ram street stock clutches are completely rebuildable by the factory.
