Would a visual apply here as well?

What would happen if its too tight or too loose?

Thanks,
Pugsy.

Facts and specs are important. I simply use a visual inspection as I build since I have done this tranny thing for decades.

.054 will work on a 3-4 clutch pack 700r4 IF you have a daily driver , low RPM application. If you are going to shift at higher RPM (above 4500) the clearance needs to be opened to .070 IMHO.

The 3-4 clutch pack can tend to apply centrifugally at higher RPMs. I often install stiffer springs in the aluminum drum to help hold off clutch packs at higher RPMs.
