I have a Brinn tranny, and i just bought a used brinn bellhousing with the starter gear and retaining plate. I have the 6 1/4 inch flywheel. I have ordered an idler spring and an idler shaft. What else do i need inside the bellhousing and how do i set the clearances between the gears and flywheel?

Is there any shims or spacers needed?

Call Brinn they will give the settings for the clearences for ring gears soforth.Somtimes you need to shim your flywheel.

I just got my parts from Afco today, and i am having trouble figuring out what holds the idler shaft in place. i know one end fits in the bellhousing and the other in the retaining plate, but are their supposed to be bolts to hold it in? The idler shaft is gundrilled and threaded.

If i understand you right then yes one end of the shaft sticks into the bellhousing and teh other end is bolted to the retaining plate and the plate is bolted in from the front of the bellhousing.

It looks like it takes a special tabered bolt to bolt it to the retaining plate. Afco has no such number. has anyone ever seen a bolt that could be countersunk?

It is not a regular bolt, It is a hex bolt that tightens with an allen wrench. At least that is what mine has in it. You can probably find one at your local hardware or foarm store.
