Installed the RMS, here's the tool on the back of the crank:



Here is the portion that holds the seal just after the install was done and I was pulling it back. I put a thin layer of Curil-T on the outside of the seal (green stuff squishing out) and oiled the inside of the seal and where it contacts the crank.



Cleaned up and done! Also installed the pilot bearing, kept it in the freezer until the install and it tapped in easily. I put a thin layer of MoS2 grease on the inside of the bearing where the drive shaft rests.



A couple of shots showing the depth of the installed RMS, quite a bit deeper than the one that came out.

That looks right to me. Just need a flywheel and clutch.

Thanks Justin!

Clutch is through the sorting facility in LA, it will be here soon! I'm going to slap together the rear suspension and rear brakes next so I can bleed the brakes and clutch. Might as well get that out of the way.

Had a bunch of judo stuff Fri/Sat so didn't get much done. Cleaned the bellhousing so I don't get filthy every time I move it. While I did that I cleaned the clutch fork to look for cracks and check wear. As Justin informed me, the clutch forks are NLA for these cars and they all show the wear noted below, so you have to live with it.



So I pressed in some new bearings and got that little job done...

Clutch and pressure plate arrived! I installed the starter ring and dropped the flywheel and pressure plate off to be balanced, flywheel resurfaced too. Should have it back next week. Very excited. Even though the pressure plate is red, it is not the highest clamping force version that ClutchNet makes, it is intermediate, should be yellow. They ran out of yellow paint and called to let me know before they shipped.

Got the pressure plate and flywheel back from BEL. Glad I took them in, the pressure plate was off by a bit:

Great, when does the install start? I want your wooden special tool blocks.
