      What do you mean 'not Volvo'? I don't think Volvo ever made its own clutch. They were Sachs or perhaps BW or F&S. If you are going with the M400/M410 and matching bell housing its would be easier to stay with the original style clutch.

      Skandix, Scandcar and CVI also probably list the parts.

      Your bigger problem may be finding the pedal box / steering column mount to mount the clutch pedal.
      A 142 of course. What do you expect? I'm the 142 guy. / 1971 142 E 102 color

      Then the VP Autoparts kit should do the trick if you are looking for an OEM replacement.

      I assume that you are getting the flywheel from the same donor car that is providing the transmission and bell housing? Remember to add in a new pilot bearing and release bearing because they are typically not included in the kits. It looks like you will also need to source the release fork from the donor car because they no longer appear to be in production. Examine the fork for wear on the pins that engage the release bearing (these may need to be built up with bushings) and cracks in the fork. Wear and cracks is a not uncommon problem on the forks used on the M40 / M41 so the M400 might have the same problem.
