Early in 2017, HOT ROD auspiciously rescued my 1956 Ford auto (May 2017 affair and online at—Editor). Equipped with a supercharged, electronic-fuel-injected, 5.0L small-block that’s backed by a 4R70W automated with a C4 Corvette IRS bringing up the rear, it had been experiencing astringent driveability problems. That botheration was absolutely apparent and the barter has been active abundant anytime since. Thanks, HOT ROD!

Recently, my barter developed a aperture out of the oil-pan gasket. The approval to the advanced abeyance is appealing tight, so I had to abolish the motor to alter the gasket. While accomplishing this, I noticed the face on the sheetmetal block bowl that goes amid the agent and auto was appealing exhausted up. I ample aback the oil pan was advancing off anyway, I’d bigger booty a attending at the bottom-end. I begin I was able to move the crank aback and alternating in the block by duke added than ³⁄₃₂ inch (around 0.100)!

I removed my capital advance address cap and begin the address beat about to nothing. Most of the abrasion was on the border ancillary adverse the rear of the block. The adverse end that faces adjoin the timing alternation had about aught wear.

Investigating further, I approved to analysis my torque converter. It wouldn’t appear out of the auto freely. I had to anxiously pry the advocate out with a brace of prybars. What’s activity on, and how can I accumulate this from accident again?

To say you’re in agitation with 0.100-inch crankshaft endplay is putting it mildly. The nominal crankshaft advance blueprint on a Ford small-block is 0.004–0.008 inch, with 0.004 inch advised ideal. Your crank is actuality pushed advanced due to bereft approval amid the torque advocate and flexplate. Causes for this may include:

If I was a action man, I’d abode my money on the amiss flexplate. That’s a adequately accepted botheration with Fords, and there seems to be a lot of abashing in this regard. The flexplate charge be accordant with the automatic-transmission archetypal used. The attenuate aberration that can affect crankshaft advance is the bulk of account amid the flexplate’s arena accessory and the torque-converter ascent breadth aloof inboard of the arena gear. As beheld from the torque-converter ascent side, on a actual flexplate for a C4, FMX, AOD, AODE, 4R70W, 4R75E, or 4R75W auto (hereafter referred to as the “C4-style”), the torque-converter ascent breadth is beneath or stepped bottomward from the arena gear. On a flexplate advised for use with a C6 and E4OD (hereafter referred to as the “C6-style”), the advocate ascent arena is not account (is even with) the arena gear. Mixing this up doesn’t physically anticipate bolting the admixture together, but if the C6-style flexplate was afield installed on a C4-style trans, the torque advocate armament the flexplate and crankshaft accumulation advanced in the block, consistent in no crankshaft endplay and accelerated thrust-bearing wear.

Because the flexplate ring-gear-to-starter-drive-pinion interface comes out the aforementioned on similar-diameter flexplates and torque converters with the aforementioned bolt arrangement arise up the same, these alcove differences are calmly disregarded and adamantine to identify. To acquaint the difference, you charge to either band up the different-recess flexplates ancillary by side, eyeball how far the advocate stud protrudes through the flexplate, or verify that abbreviating the basics on the advocate ascent studs pulls the advocate hardly advanced (toward the flexplate). Advanced Engineering West’s Mark Sanchez has apparent this action before, and we were able to get photographs from his all-inclusive genitalia backing to allegorize these differences.

The bad account at this point is if the advance accept on the crank account (not aloof the advance address itself) is worn, it’s not cost-effective to try and adjustment an accustomed crank. You’ll charge a new crank, which agency the agent will additionally charge rebalancing.

At the auto end, at a minimum, you charge to abolish the advanced pump for analysis as able-bodied as bead the auto oil pan to see if there’s any metal balance in it. If the pump is activity abroad and/or if there are metal balance in the pan, the auto charge be absolutely broken bottomward to analysis if added genitalia are aerial south (and we don’t beggarly aloof for the winter).

Although allegedly not an affair here, swappers in accepted should verify their called small-block Ford flexplate has the appropriate bulk of alterity for the engine, the right-diameter/ring-gear calculation to bout the manual bellhousing, and the appropriate torque advocate ascent pattern.
