ts, not poured babbitt.
This is interesting. I have a rebuilt engine (babbit), the cam/crank spacing was tight and the transmission jumps out of 3rd when slowing down. In order to get the flywheel housing correct, had to have .001 shim on the left ear and .010 on the right but still jumps out of gear. Have also suspected the rebuilt transmission (by one of the big three) may be the problem. I'm not a machinist. Is there any way I can determine exactly how far out the crank alignment is. Even if the crank is misaligned. shouldn't have gotten the flywheel housing alignment correct fixed the jumping out of gear problem??

Joe recently moved into his new shop. I am anxious to see it.
