I was dreading cutting the trans tunnel frame and this is all I was comfortable cutting out to this point with an opening about 5 1/2".The only way I know to cut the flat lip is with a saw blade without the frame to hold it.
Dialing in the bell with offset dowels can be exhausting if you never did it.I got within .020 with .000 on 1 side to start.I will try again tomorrow. I had to remove the bolts holding the bell to the engine on the lowest 2 boltsto allow the dowels to move the bell a couple of times and check other bolts.
I know I need to get the dial at a better angle.I also have the dowel at max lift and will work on the last .005ps:I got it down to .013 at 2 oclock and .000 at 8 oclock and I am wondering if I can go with a .020 dowel and get it down to just a few thou.What do you think?
I need some help deciding to got a .020 dowel set.I got it down to .013 at 2 oclock and .000 at 8 oclock and I am wondering if I can go with a .020 dowel and get it down to just a few thou.What do you think?dowel set .021 at this time I have 3 bolts that will not thread and are hitting the hole in the 2 lower block holes and 1 on the upper holes.
What he is seeing is very common, it depends on where you locate the zero on the dial indictor to start with I now start with the zero at 12 o clock and go from there If it is oblong, goes to +.012 and then returns to zero and then goes to -.017 and then returns to zero at 12 o clock I know where and what size offset bushing to start with It ain't easy but it is doable
