The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

I have a weird question.....

When you are mounting the bell housing to the torque tube are there typically washers that go between the mating surface or does aluminum adapter mount flush to the steel? The reason I ask is that my RH bell housing and adapter had 1mm washers that were stuck to the bolt holes via thread locker, (like it was supposed to be there) and I was curious how other were mounting their bell housings.

Adapter plate to steel is how we always do it.

I recently took my RH adapter off and it also had those washers as you describe between it and the TT. I left them out when I reassembled, as they seemed way too ghetto for my tastes. Do you suppose the washers were to correct a slightly too-thin adapter plate?

No idea. I was wondering if it was a corrosion correction decreasing the contact patch with the dissimilar metals. I went ahead and took them out too. I was questioning how the drive shaft seated into the bearing and figured that pushing the shaft back further via the washers was not ideal. I am going to install my engine on Sunday hopefully and am going to take a careful look at it.

Grenade Hybrids designed it that way so every time it rains you'll get free TT bearing lubricant Razz
