  • Flywheels are produced from grey cast iron or steel and form a friction lock between the crankshaft and the drive train via the clutch.
  • The main function of the flywheel is to compensate for rotational irregularities of the crankshaft. This helps to drastically reduce the transfer of engine vibrations to the drive train.
  • Dual mass flywheels feature two components – the flywheel itself and a torsional vibration damper. The vibration damper absorbs and dampens torsional vibration, thus reducing the resonance in the gearbox and drive train.
  • Other tasks of the flywheel include accommodating the clutch with drive plate and pressure plate.
  • The starter motor for starting the engine is connected via the external shrunk-on ring gear.
  • Some flywheels are notched as this helps with the adjustment of the injection system
