Next, we put the motor adapter ring on - the bolts will get torqued to 35 ft-lbs:
Next comes the profile plate - again, torqued to 35 ft-lbs:
And finally, the flywheel is attached to the hub - the hub is not tightened down yet, since we will need to adjust the flywheel-to-profile-plate distance.
The next step is to adjust the distance. Unfortunately, the closest we can get the flywheel to the profile plate is 1.62", which is 2/10" farther than the required 1.415" +/- 0.01". This is due to the fact that the splines on the shaft do not extend all the way to the motor, and this is as far back as the splined bushing can slide. I've sent email to Electro Auto to ask about options; as I see it, there are three main ones:
- Add a 2/10" thick spacer ring between the motor ring and the profile plate
- Machine the tapered bushing down so that it can slide farther back on the shaft
- Add a 2/10" thick large metal gasket between the adapter plate and the transmission bellhousing
