Thanks for clearing the issue on 3 & 6 paddle disc Bob. Since this will be mostly street duty, I'll probably go with what's readily available out there. You never mentioned if the pressure plate is a Mopar unit or not - ? but I assume it is.

I'll take a hole saw to my bellhousing so I'll be able to fit a feeler gauge in there. Thanks for feedback. Vic

I doubt these two tiny holes are vent holes as the front of the bellhousing is wide open without the block plate - maybe more like drain holes but then, who knows...
I checked the soft-loc units and it's a good idea but I would imagine if one had enough horses and tires that bite, the input shaft would still take a beating. Also it'll be hard to justify those prices for a hobby to my wife

Bob,

Can I trouble you to get a measurement on the adjustment hole - from engine mounting flange to center of 1 1/4" hole?

Thank you,
Vic

I measured 5" back and it seems it's real close to the tranny - too far back to take a clutch clearance measurement. When I get my clutch back, I'll mock it up and see. Any chance of a picture? Thanks, Vic
