    Default help needed- Lenco crank button

    I am mating a Lenco clutch to the engine for my hondo and have run into an issue with attaching the crank button. the button bottoms out against the end of the crank and it is about .325" from the flexplate. the only spacers/shims I found are only around .030" Anybody had this issue?

    If you run a flexplate you need to machine a 1/2" spacer. Most flywheels take up the space adequately.

    Ok that's what I figured. I was hoping someone sells them or had one laying around. Are there benefits to running a flywheel instead of a flexplate? I just went for the flexplate because of the less weight and less $$

    Did a search on here and found lots of good info on the flexplate vs flywheel. Lots of informative posts on the subject from GN7. Rest in peace Bob

    Thanks that's less than I expected. Small things sure add up towards the end of a build.

    also found this through speedway motors. looks like it eliminates the need for the separate spacer. $60
