2011 CTSV Coupe M BLK LSX376-B15
I hope you're not still "bugged out?" You are correct, my calculations were wrong. I went back and corrected my math. The input shaft completely penetrates the 1/2" thick pilot bearing and extends out 0.30".That illustration above has been buggin me so much because it ain’t right… and neither is the “barely engages the pilot” something is being misunderstood. However, I’ve been waiting until I got to the proper place in my own build so that I could compare notes.
Below are measurements taken directly from my build as I finally got to the point of pulling the engine off the stand…
the input shaft is NOT giving the crankshaft “just the tip”, it’s IN there.
Now, I could’ve driven the input bearing ‘fully home’ and that would have made a small difference (.180?) but it would not have moved ahead of the shaft.
Maybe the trans being supplied matches that drawing, but I hope not.
below is how mine fits up, stock 2011 CTS-V TR6060 and the LSX block with a Brodix crank.
~Forgive my hasty sketching~
