I put my Triple Disc in and measured clearance for the throwout and it's almost a 1/4 of a inch from being flush with trans installed. I have a Howe Throw out bearing and a Quarter Master triple Disc. Anyone ever had this Prob? thanks

If your throughout bearing is like mine it sets on two studs that come out of the trans. All I did was back the nuts that were on the studs in or out to get the right clearance

My throw out bearing doesn't even touch the nuts on the studs it bottoms out on the snout before hitting the nuts. The throw out is tight against the clutch before the tranny is all the way in. Thanks

Make sure you have the right release bearing. There are 2 types. 1 for mulit disc clutches and 1 for single disc clutches. Multi disc release bearings are shorter

It's the Howe for Triple Discs. Are there different front snouts for 3 speed Saginaws Maybe? Thanks

Hey man I just got done with the same exact problem, you need to take the snout off and take it to someone who has a lathe or something and you need to turn the front of the snout down until the throwout bearing will rest on the bolts in the snout, it took me a few nights to figure it out but finally it works well. Anything else, ask, because i just got done dealing with that.

I got it fugured out I don't run a mid plate or mid mounts and that is where I was losing my Spacing.

How much did you gain by turning the Snout down? Thanks
