    Shimming the Drive Shaft, PTO side

    Now before you evil naysayers say it can't be done listen to my reasoning and why I want to do it. This is basically a daughter thread to the drive shaft play thread I started. I have my DS play set at 1/2 and I can see I need just a bit more to be safe. The problem is my fuel lines are maxed out, my IC piping is on the verge of having to be re-cut and I'll have to redo the Exhaust coupling if I move the engine back any further. That's WAY TOO much work.

    Now the SC uses shims and it spins WAY faster than the DS. If I put a washer, maybe two max, in the PTO drive shaft hole it should give me the tension I need on the bellows. The washers are static and do not spin against the drive shaft and as long as they're the correct size it should not pose any balance issues.

    Comments?

    Throw an o-ring or cut hose behind the bellows.

    Seems too easy. What's the catch? Does it cause horrible skin rash or some type of VD?

    Off to the store I go. Thanks. I'd lose it if I had to redo all that shit. Can't stand messing with braided stainless lines. Always end up bleeding and cussing

    Think I can just cut a piece from the old bellows?
