A single mass flywheel (SMF) is an alternative to the popular two-piece dual mass flywheel (DMF) design and can be fitted to many passenger cars and light commercial vehicles as original equipment.
Dual mass technology is intended to give smooth tick over and drive characteristics for mainly turbo-diesel and high performance applications.
However, NAP say these complex multi-component units “have been plagued with reliability issues, often failing very early in their life expectancy”.
The specialist continues: “Like for like DMF replacements are expensive and do not guarantee to be any more reliable than the original unit.
“The SMF replacement reverts to the original solid flywheel technology that has stood the test of time over many decades.
“SMF kits include the damping system as part of the clutch plate design rather than in the flywheel as with dual mass units.
“NAP’s SMF kits give reliable motoring at a much reduced cost compared to that of replacing the DMF unit.”
SMF kits are popular for high mileage applications such as LCVs and mature vehicles applications, offering a cost effective solution to DMF.
The NAP range includes 59 SMF kits, of which 16 have LCV suitability.
Popular LCV applications for SMF kits include; CK9784F, Ford Transit 2.4 (00-06); CK9952F, Ford Transit 2.4 (04-06).
