Quicktime Bellhousing

Today the QuickTime bellhousing was mounted to the block to check for runout.  The supplied backing plate was installed behind the flywheel.  The flywheel was then installed and bolts were torqued to 95 ft-lbs.  The bellhousing bolts were then torqued to 40 ft-lbs.  A dial indicator was placed on the flywheel (without the clutch in place) with a magnetic base to check runout.  Instructions call for a maximum of .005″ offset.  The crank was turned over until the highest reading on the dial was achieved.  The indicator was zeroed and the reading was taken again.  Highest reading was .031″.  The reading divided by two or .015″  is the total offset.  A set of Lakewood offset dowel pins were ordered to correct this.   The offset dowels were expensive but I beleive they’ll be well worth the money spent.  The offset portion rotates freely from the portion inside the block.  The dowel has two flats enabling the use of a wrench instead of a flat head screw driver.  When the proper location is acheived, a set screw locks everything in place.
