This page has been created to help customers understand the meaning of clocking. Its commonly misunderstood and has lead to parts being made that don't fit the customers needs. Please understand that there are no fixes or refunds for these mistakes! I'm under the impression that if you don't ask for an explanation... you understand.
All of my fill pots and swirl pots allow you to at least choose the outlet clocking from a drop down list. The list doesn't always represent all of the available options, rather only the commonly requested ones or only those that are allowed by a specific design. Remote mount options allow you to choose both inlet and outlet clocking through email.
Before I get into clocking, lets understand a few things. The inlet should always be the higher of the two connections. On products that are welded directly to a flange, the position of the inlet in relationship to the tank is controlled by the placement of the tank as well as vertical clearance to the cylinder heads outlet. In most cases, direct mount products sit over the block or transmission, affecting the overall height of the tank as well as where the inlet intersects the tank.
- If the cylinder head outlet is 3.00" above the transmission, I only have 3.00" to place the inlet and the outlet, so if I'm using 1.25" tube, .625" of that will consume a portion of the 3.00" and leaves me with 2.375" to place the outlet. The whole 1.25" outlet tube must be placed below the weld of the inlet and above the weld of the base. This puts a distance of roughly .625" between inlet and outlet.
