[V8Vairs] Kelmark Shaft

It is starting to come back to me... The shaft was cut apart and the clutch end from a standard Chevy was added. This way a standard clutch could be used. The one inch thin always bothered me, which is why I bought one from Clark's. If you built a special pilot bushing, I would think the one einch extension could be made up there.
The Polished area I don't rember about. I do rember using some steel wool. The Kelmark kit that I bought had an extra seal in it so I just used both of them. I don't think it has ever leaked.
There was another thing the instructions talked about at length regarding the input shaft was the end play. The engine / bellhousing, rear end / transmission needs to be assembled and the pilot bushing depth set.
Hope this helps.

>> I had an original Kelmark shaft at one time (gave it away). All it was was a standard shaft, cut apart, extended by an inch, and welded back together. I bought my current one from Clarks.

>Thanks for your reply. I am curious about where the one inch was added to the shaft and where the polished seal area ended up. What about the location of the seal area on the long shaft obtained from Clark's?
