Re: Brown Transmission Alignment Tool

At the risk of asking the dumb question, if that thing is aluminum what good is it? What can it possibly do that you cant do with a mag base dial indicator? and if its aluminum how do you strap a indicator on it to run a check on the trans mating surface?

The Browell tool is a go-no go tool. You mount it to the CS and fit the BH over it eliminating the aggravation of using the dial indicator to check the runout. The BH will either fit or not, if not, the offset dowels will be needed. However, the dial indicator will give you the necessary measurements for the offset dowels (offset required and clock direction) whereas I don't see how the Browell tool can provide this same information, it only lets you know if the BH runout is within spec or not. Additionally, I don't believe that the Browell tool provides any method of checking the parallel fit of the BH to the block which should be done first before checking the runout so you'll still lneed the dial indicator. I attached a photo of the tool in the thread at the link below:

Re: Brown Transmission Alignment Tool

I suppose it depends on whether you consider the indicator to be an aggravation. To me the place to start is a surface plate with the bellhousing and find out how lucky you are. Then bolt it on the block and discover if block mounting surface is perpendicular to the crank centerline. After that you can worry about concentricity.

Re: Brown Transmission Alignment Tool

I don't see how it could replace a test dial indicator? Maybe I'm missing something.
