How do I dial in a bellhousing with the Lakewood adjustable dowel pins?
Remove clutch assembly from flywheel and install bellhousing on engine block. (It is easier to leave the clutch assembly off the flywheel)
Install dial indicator base on the flywheel and adjust plunger to contact the register bore of the housing.
Rotate the flywheel and note indicator reading. Misalignment is one-half of the indicator reading. (maximum allowable is .005”)
To correct off-center condition, select the offset dowel pin pair that is closest to one-half of the indicator reading. (e.g. if reading is .016”, 1/2R=.008” - use .007” dowels. If reading is .024”, 1/2R=.012” - use .014” dowels)
Remove stock dowel pins by driving from back side or pulling with gripper pliers.
Clean engine block dowel holes and coat lightly with lubricant.
Lubricate dowel pins and install in block. The slot in the dowel pins indicates the direction of maximum offset. They should be installed parallel to one another and in pairs. (both .007” or both .014” and .021”)
Install and tighten bellhousing securely. Remount the dial indicator and recheck the register bore runout. (repeat step 3)
To make small corrections or adjustments to the alignment, you will need to remove the bellhousing and drive the offset dowels out of the block. Reposition the dowels using the slot as a reference point and re-install. Re-check register bore run-out. Repeat this procedure until the register bore is within limits.

These drag shocks are for race applications only. They supply maximum weight transfer to the rear wheels with quick rise on front end. The numbers represent compression and rebound differentials.
