Q & A

What's in the Box

Another Speedway exclusive -- makes hydraulic release bearing set-up as easy as 1-2-3. We all know what a pain it is to set the clearance on a hydraulic release bearing. With this handy little tool you will take the guess work and drudgery out of it.

Simply hold the tool up to the bellhousing and push the rod in until it touches the pressure plate fingers. Then turn the tool around and place it up to the transmission, and you can check your clearance.

Made of heavy steel construction with a black oxide finish, so this tool won't wear out or break. Numbers are laser etched.
