  • Xcessive SR to VG adapter; flywheel spacer an issue??

    So I am in the process of considering which adapter kit for a SR to VG. There are loads of adapter plates on the market. However, this is one particular kit I had an eye on (no machining of bell housing).

    Full Kit (no machining of bell housing, flywheel spacer)However, as you can see it has a flywheel spacer. I have heard all sorts of horror stories of what a spacer separating "could" do, but not seeing much of it being an issue if everything is torqued correctly.

    Is a flywheel spacer really that much bad thing (as in, will it greatly increase main and thrust bearing wear)??

    Any off axis load will increase the moment beyond the last main bearing quite a bit. I'd say that's almost doubling the moment arm on any radial load.

    Is it a problem? Who knows - but it definitely isn't a good thing...
