Identifying an AMC 20 carrier?

Can anyone tell me how to positively identify the carrier for a AMC 20 for thr R&P of 3.08 and up? I have access to a carrier and want to make sure it's not the carrier for the smaller R&P's like the 2.73's.

Re: Identifying an AMC 20 carrier?

I guess we could measure a carrier and compare?
like sit it on one bearing on a table and measure the height to the ring gear surface.

Ill have to find a tape measure and a flash light!

Ill update the post in a bit!!

OKOOKOKOKOKOKOKOKOK

IM getting 5 and 11/16 of an inch.
thats the carrier resting on the bearing furthest from the ring gear, measuring from teh table to the ring gear surface.

Re: Identifying an AMC 20 carrier?

Hey Brad,

I amlost couldn't find the carrier. I looked everywhere and couldn't find it. Then of course it was in my last bin with a bunch of crap stacked on top of it.


I got 5-5/8" without a bearing installed. I also got approx. 6-1/2"s diameter between holes center to center.

Sounds like I have the right one. Can anyone verify the hole measurement....

Later,

Re: Identifying an AMC 20 carrier?

Any two that are directly across from each other. I held a tape over the back of the ring gear and guesstimated 6.5 between holes across the center of the carrier. You will see what I mean when you have it i your hand.

Thanks,
