Clutch kit for 1.6L M40?

My clutch is on its way out so I would need a new clutch kit soon.. As far as I know m40 uses different clutch and it has lighter flywheel..

I searched for a supplier but no luck so far. I also saw a post form another forum that clutch kit for non-a/c 318IS fits but I'm not entirely sure if it's true.

If anyone know the place where I can get the clutch for this euro m40, or clutch kit from other model that would fit into m40, let me know..Thanks

check on e30tech.com or R3vlimited. Both exclusive e30 forums. I'm sure someone there can help.

Pretty sure that post was correct about the clutch kit. Your car has the same flywheel as an M42 powered car, so chances are the clutch kit is the same. I probably can get you one if you are interested. PM me.

The flywheel on M40 cars are a euro part, lighter than the 318is flywheel. The M42 clutch should go just fine, though.

Gah, fail. Yeah you are right, 11221739315 is up to 3/90... didn't see that at first (since we don't have 318s before '91). 21211223550 is the dual mass shit flywheel. Dunno if that clutch would work then, pressure plate depth may be different?

It's bit confusing to read but I don't think m42 clutch would fit into m40. I still wonder if non-a/c m42 clutch will fit into m40 though(part # is different).

I also found a sach clutch kit for 1990 318i wihtout dual mass flywheel(so I suppose it's an m40) at bavauto.com. And it's currently on clearance sale. What do you guys think?

Just get rid of the M40. Once mine needs a clutch that will be my solution.

My buddy swapped out the m40 in his touring for an m20 because the m42 water pump didn't bolt up.

To what?

The M40-M42 swap has been done a bunch of times.

If you have specifics on what problems he encountered, post away, I might find the info very useful in the future

lol reread my post - an m20b25. As far as I know he didn't run into any problems aside from running a single exhaust.

Sorry, I meant what did the water pump not "bolt" up to? Did he just need different rad hoses?
