finish getting the end clearances set on the cam side cases so I was able to get the cases married up. took a while shimming the trans to engine, I guess do to the welded lugs on the transmission case to achieve the right alignment and gear lash. used a 3/8 plate to bolt the lugs to cases while they were welded on, guess if there’s a next time ill use a heavier plate.
another experiment that I ll have to wait to see if it will pan out is. the main output gear was sealed with a cork gasket that set in a recessed counter bore and against a machined spacer. I found a non spring backed seal to fit the bore and shaft, machined a shorter spacer between roller cages to allow for the width of the seal and pressed it in. hoping for the best. will see.
lubed and installed the new disc and plates. along with primary cover.
hopefully more to share next Sunday. hope you all have a great week. laugh lots. gary
