How much can I clock my 205 before problems such as a lack of lubrication occur? lol
I'm pretty sure that all you neeed to make sure of is to keep the bottom half of the idler gear imersed in gear oil to carry the oil up to the main drive gears.
You can use pipe fittings in the plug hole to run a tube up higher when rotating the t-case to kaeep the oil level where it covers the bottom half of the idler gear.
Yep exactly what 1bigk10 said Thats what I did to my 203.
lol, i didnt even know you could clock a 205. Hmmm.. I will be getting high-angle drive shafts anyway... and need to make a crossmember also... maybe i should look into this. Anyone have pics?
Look at the 205 in this pic http://www.rpi.edu/~lessan/josh/bigass.jpg
Thanks for the help 1bigk10 but i am not sure i know what you mean with the pipe fittings.?
Damn that things bigger than mine and I thought mine was huge. I think its a 3/4 inch steel plumbing pipe you know the ones with threadon them use a 2" piece then a 90 degree elbow about a 4" piece a coupler and put your plug in the long end you can rotate the plug where it needs to go to keep te idler shaft wet. here was a write up on one of my magaznes can remember wich one but it was on a ford and they did the pipe thing.
hard to see it very well... /forums/images/icons/frown.gif anyone else have a pic of a clocked 205?
