ETS Drift Ute – Aluminium Alignment

Its been a long week, trying to be as prepared as I can so that next week can be a little less busy, heres what happened friday night, nothing like some progress to finish the working week.

The adapter for the SR auto bell housing to Quaife gearbox is now done, I made the internal lip 20mm thick and the bolt face 20mm thick aswell.

This gives me a total bell housing length of 183mm and makes the shifter sit in the perfect position.

Unfortunately the pretty side is hidden.

I sat it all together on the motor without the clutch in, the adapter is an interference fit into the bell housing and before I drilled and tapped into it I wanted to make sure it was clocked in the right position.

Removed from the gearbox I could now mark back six of these holes and drill them 8.5mm

And tap them M10x1.5mm

I could then assemble the clutch with the new plates to suit the larger input shaft and use the gearbox to align it all.

I also fitted a roller bearing into the crank, just to make things a little nicer.

With the clutch in, bell housing done, clutch lines on their way, shifter on its way, tailshaft getting done this weekend, I think I’m in for a quiet weekend. Might have to get the KTM out and blast some trails!
