Had to get creative again on this project. Bought a precision-ground plate from CycleWorks for setting the end-play clearance of the transmission shafts, but it's only for a stock transmission. The countershaft of the BMVW trans is off set by almost 1/2" from the stock location. Transferred the locations of the old and new bearing bores into CAD to determine exactly where the new hole needed to be:
Took the measurements from the CAD model to the bridgeport and with some careful figuring I machined the new bore hole into the plate. Matches up exactly with the trans cover:
Now all I have to do is figure out how to clean, check, and reassemble all the trans parts and clusters. Here goes nothing...
