If you have bought a new scat crank make sure you fit it to the transmission before you install it in your engine. The pilot holes were one size to small and could not mount the trans. It was my fault I should know better. Colin
Do you mean the holes for the two dowel pins?
Isn't it possible to reduce the diameter of one end of your dowel pins so the trans/flywheel combo can be mounted?
Yes So we used a dye grinder and opened them up slightly. In hind sight we should have checked to make sure the crank fit on the trans. We have it fixing now and are setting up the mag.
For the price of these things, should you have to do this kind of modification?
I didn't have to modify mine. It was a tight fit but it assembled and I took that as being a good thing.
What do you mean by "one size too small"? How much too small is "one size"?
We used the drill bit set but could not drill it as it is harden steal. Are car is a 1912 we could not pull it down with the bolts when compared to a spare input shaft the pilot holes were to small, thus the warning it is easier to check it before the install rather than after. We checked everything else but that but we are good now. It was a miner thing but it brought the days work to a quick hault. Cheers Colin
I have done two SCAT cranks in the last 12 months and there was no problem with the pins. Maybe a different batch, certainly I would recommend you contact SCAT.
I put one in my '13 runabout, and the dowel pins fit a lot better than an original! Be careful up front though, you have to grind a bit off the horseshoe and bolt to keep the counterweight from hitting.
