Yesterday I decided to remove the engine for inspection, clean and rebuild.
When built I had everything balanced. I’m changing from a grey to orange pressure plate. Should I have it rebalanced?
The engine is producing 112 lbft torque @ 6000rpm and 102 lbft @ 3000rpm, 132 BHP, 3.1 diff and has straight cut drops. I know the turbo boys are producing more power and using helical drops, but how likely would I end up winding the idler gear into the casing if I went helical? I don’t want to risk ruining the gearbox casing but the noise of straight cuts is wearing.
