Re: Is a hand-tight pinion nut OK?

Well, there is the possibility that the seal leaking is caused by too much radial movement of the pinion shaft due to loss of pre-load. While you are in there take a look at the crush sleeve and inner race of the bearing to see if there is evidence the two may have been spinning against each other.

Re: Is a hand-tight pinion nut OK?

I would go with just snuging it up a little bit more with RTV on the threads as they do tend to weep oil by the threads. There is no way to achieve the 14-17 without removing the diff gear. The 14-17 measurement is for the pinion only, without the diff gear assembly installed. If you go with replaci...

Re: Argenta Turbo engine bearings?

Yes, King racing bearing. I purchased a set of these a few years back for the race motor. They can be special order for us in the USA, they are a technologically advanced bearing and do cost significantly more. They are not really needed for the power levels we are running, but if you were to add a ...

Re: Valve Tolerances Make No Sense after Head Gasket

I think there is something that you are not telling us?? Why would you have to change the cam box gaskets when replacing the head gasket. Did you have the head machined and they also re-cut the valve seats??

Re: 2019 Race#1 -Waterford Hills, MI

Jim, yes I am running the atb diff (Torsen type). I have been running this diff for the last three years, best investment ever! One interesting thing to note, with only running 4th gear I only ran 1.8secs slower than my fastest lap from last year. The new track does have better grip, as there was 6 ...

Re: Speedo Drive and Internal Drive Gear

No need to cut them open, just measure the number of turns of the input gear VS the output Shaft? Jim, do you have three different ones in that photo?
