Clocking of Dana 300, Dimensions needed.

I have a four day weekend comming up and I plan on doing some transmission work that is long over due. Plan on installing a hydrolic clutch and clocking the dana 300 with flat skid plate are the main goals. I have a novak adapter for my NP 435 to Dana 300 combo. I plan on redrilling the adapter to allow the Dana 300 to rotate so I can possibly get the flat skid plate. What I would like to know is what angle in the counter clockwise driection will I have to rotate the bolt holes? I have a one inch body lift so I am thinking that I maybe able take it to the extreme that the clocking rings offer. If anyone has the actual dimensions of a clocking ring that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help.

I just finished my flat skid plate. Even with my 2" body lift, I had to do some custom shaping of the passenger floor. With the flat skid plate, I will be running CV shafts. With the flat skid plate the angles will be pretty exteme for a regular shaft.

Re: Clocking of Dana 300, Dimensions needed.

So it sounds like I may not be able to rotate it completely flat. I had planed on getting a chance to lay under the Jeep and do some pondering today but with the inside of the garagae to full of crap and the rain that didn't happen. Any more heads up would be appreciated.

What angle did you have to rotate it to get it completaly flat? Maybe I will have to knock of five degrees or so and not have my skid plate completely flat may have to have it drop down a couple inches. Does anyone know of a site I can get the bolt patternt dimensions for the dana 300? I plan on doing this at the machine shop at work so if I had the dimension I could do this on the CNC machine. Thanks for your help.

Re: Clocking of Dana 300, Dimensions needed.

gonna take my Th350-d300 adapter (novak) and re-drill it when the tranny is out.

24deg is flat i think, that's what im going to go with...

gotta do some grade 12 math to figure out the actual dimentions.. also wish I had a CNC.. I'll be punch, drill and drill with mine.
