Clutch release bearing

Does anyone have a stock throw out/release bearing sitting around that they can take some measurements of?

Re: Engine wanted

I will save you guys some waiting time for the next video and let you know the truck is up and running and appears the be handling everything well. It will take some time to get everything cleaned up the way I want it, and finish a few minor items. In the meantime I am taking it on some shakedown ru...

Re: Engine wanted

24 to 12V conversion is almost complete, just need some new headlight bulbs and either rewind or swap out the wiper motors. If anyone has solid info on swapping or rewinding wiper motors I sure would appreciate it. This appears to be an option. https://www.oshkoshequipment.com/products/detail/71/375...

Re: Engine wanted

The clutch is a stage three from Spec. It is simply a clutch designed for a Volvo 164. Their stage one clutch is good to 350ftlbs. I would be lying if I told you I remembered the torque rating of the stage 3, but it’s vastly higher just due to the 6 puck design over the full disc design. The clutch ...

Re: Engine wanted

As for the 617 option, I have had a few. They are decent for sure. But at extreme RPM’s they start to leak and are really pushing their limits as built. They are a pleasure under 4500rpm though.

Re: Engine wanted

Those are not the correct specs for the Cummins R2.8.

HP is 161 as I recall and torque is flat across at 310ftlbs max RPM is 4200 as I recall.

Re: Engine wanted

Thanks, it will be awesome when it’s done to completion. 310ftlbs of torque with the poorly geared T-case is amazing to say the least. I always prefer a crawler box or something so I can get 100:1 or better crawl, but this one with all the engine torque will get the job done as well. I don’t see mys...

Re: Engine wanted

Well, certainly don’t want to spoil any future videos, but know that this video is about a month old in terms of progress. The engine is indeed a very tight fit. The bell adapter is .75” thick and is precision ground flat. The stock Cummins flywheel is installed with minor machine work to accept a f...

Re: Engine wanted

Should have another video soon. Long story short the engine and transmission have been mated fully and everything appears to fit fine so far. Still not out of the woods yet though.

Re: Engine wanted

Here is the adapter as seen through CAD. I should have all the parts on hand by Friday if my machine shop can pull it together.
