Hi fellows that's a long while.

i'm rebuilding a 998 cooper engine (1030/hr 270/ported 12g295 11.5 cr, 3.64 dif on cooper s box) but have trubles with the drop gear clearance *tongue*

This come from the gasket thikness, I know we have already talked about this in the past but can't find the post, does a charitable mind have the compressed transfer case gasket thikness? *happy*.

cheers

From memory the standard gasket is 0.032" think. I doubt it would compress by more than .001-.002 given the fixings are only torqued to 18lb/ft

The genuine gasket is usually green?

Thank Phil ;p
Graemec,I'm used to use the green one but the only one I found today is genuine and ok, it's a grey one in genuine convertion Gsk kit, it does allow to set the gap to 3 thu with standard shims. thi said Please mesure so we can keep somewhere the mesures, this thread is correctly intituled and will allow to find back.
Gearbox and drops complete, going one the engine set up.. I have a geuine std 544 under the bench that is tempting to build a formula junior replica engine :)
cheers

Hi Fab.

Minispares pink gasket in kit AJM206MS measures 0.032" if it any help to you.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe.
