What is a Clutch Flywheel?
For a vehicle to move, the engine must produce power and the transmission must deliver that power to the road wheels. Despite that you’d have to have some way of starting and stopping the vehicle, this would be enough to propel it in certain conditions and at a set speed. However, the driver must adjust the speed according to elevation or obstacles and as such needs a gearbox to achieve this variation.
The clutch mechanism enables instructions given by the driver to be converted into a variety of different speeds and crucial to the clutch mechanism is the flywheel, which is a heavy-duty disc that is mounted on the back of the engine and spins vigorously when the motor is running. In certain circumstances, it will interact with the gearbox and the rest of the clutch mechanism, to transfer power.
