Thread: Clearance for big gears

  1. #1
    Does anyone have pics of water passages and plate milled for bigger than 37 gears? Going to do my 10 degree box before I put it back together.
    Help !!

    Yes a friend of mine had a box with more gear than that in it and still had the water passage in it. you will have to take it to a milling machine and cut it down.

    I just wacked the water jacket right out and cut the mid plate to match.

    I've got 45's in mine with the jacket, about 3/16 wall left.

    Ditto, me too ... just mill it out, make sure you match up the mid plate if you are going to run 48's or higher ...

    I had 48's in my box and only had to clearance the water jacket rib with a die grinder. Probably only need .025 to .030 clearance to be safe.

    I have 54's in the box and still have the water jacket. Ordered it that way from Casale.
