Hi guys,

I was looking into why my clutch cover had a gouge in it and noticed that the Input Shaft has about .030" of play, in and out. I'm hoping that is normal and not the cause of my belts blowing so frequently. I'm thinking the Input Shaft would be real close to the same on all years, so hopefully one of you have noticed if yours does or does not have any play in that shaft.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Tom

Thanks for confirming that you noticed it on yours too! I've known it to be the case on car and truck transmissions, so I figured it is probably normal. But, wanted to make sure before I thought it was good to go for another trip out to the dunes.

Gee, sounds like an "automatic belt alignment" feature... I'd expect the marketing guys to puff about that like they did on the SLD.:cool:
