Throw Out Bearing & Pressure Plate, Spacer
Just a couple of pictures of a spacer which we are manufacturing to space the hydraulic throw out bearing, 3/4" closer to the pressure plate. We are mating a 331 Chrysler Hemi to a New Process, 4 speed standard, Chrysler tranmission. We are using an adapter plate, however; a spacer must be used to achieve the correct spacing between the throw out bearing and the pressure plate.
The spacer is machined to accept/cover the flange on the input bearing retainer (which covers the input shaft bearing on the transmission, in picture # 3) and protruding on the other end to properly center the McLeod Bearing (picture # 2).
