Re: Finally... Inexpensive Dana 300 Clocking Rings

i got mine off of ebay.. for $45.. plus shipping.. think it was like $52 total.. but no bolts.. i then noticed the same guy.. a few weeks later.. had upped the starting bid.. to around 65.. or 85.. cant remember.. but it was a nice ring.. i had to file out the center hole slightly.. and beat it on with a hammer.. but it works well.. and its still cheap...

Re: Finally... Inexpensive Dana 300 Clocking Rings

the current rings have 10, 20, and 30 clocking positions for D300's (the pic only shows 20 and 30 positions, but it was a test piece).

the new rings will have 10, 20, and 30 clocking positions for D300's and 10 and 20 clocking positions for NP231's. the prototype should be done today and pics should be up on the site early next week. these "new and improved" rings should be ready for sale in about 2 weeks.

Now all we need are inexpensive D300's to go with the clocking rings. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Finally... Inexpensive Dana 300 Clocking Rings

I'm interested, but need more info re a CJ7

1) Can anyone give us some guidelines on when a change in driveshaft type would be necessary. Raising the xfer case 1" should be the same as lifting by suspension 1". Right? Many of us have U joints running equal angles and probably 2 1/2 to 4 inch spring lifts. I'd love to build a new FLAT skidplate / crossmember and gain some clearance, but of course need to know what I am getting myself into ultimately. If I clock the dana 300 up to level with the bottom of the frame rails are there any driveshaft changes required?

It appears only the front driveshaft output will be affected by this clocking. Is that right?

Thanks,
Tim

Re: Finally... Inexpensive Dana 300 Clocking Rings

Why would you want to clock a 300 up 30 deg.? They are only 23 deg. stock so it would seem that 23 deg is the most you would want to go.

Re: Finally... Inexpensive Dana 300 Clocking Rings

Tim as long as you have enough travel in your front shaft and don't run at high speeds with the front engaged, you should be ok. Yes, clocking the case would be comparable to a lift.

You do have to be careful depending on what tranny you are running. I used Go2Guy ring to clock my 300 flat. I am running a TF727 and the large pan caused me to fun a two piece front shaft.
