dolly 1500 auto engine?

I have a chance to get a dolly 1500 engine to use in my Herald. The engine is coming from a Dolly 1500 Auto. The body has been used for a Sprint so the engine is going cheap.
I have a few questions, is the the Auto engine any different from a manual 1500? As it had an auto box on it I need a new fly wheel for it, anyone know if a herald 13/60 one fit?

cheers

BTW if this has been covered before or the info is somewhere then any links much appreciated!

There is no difference in engines.

The flywheel from memory you have to drill out the 4 bolt hole and fit the spiggot bearing

Rimmers do all the bits for this

Early type flywheels with 3/8” diameter bolt holes CAN be fitted to crankshafts that have 7/16” drillings by carefully ‘centre drilling out’ the 4 holes to 7/16” and using 4 later type bolts

Later type flywheels (TKC1840) with 7/16” diameter bolt holes CAN be fitted to crankshafts that have 3/8” drillings by using one of our Bolt/Bush adaptor kits, which include 4 (3/8”) fixing bolts, and 4 machined bushes. Both early & late flywheels use the same locating dowels.
