53 FL Pinion

Just bought a set of S&S generator cases (pre-65 style) . I know my flywheels from my 53 motor will not fit and will need a sproket shaft for a timken main bearing. However, does anyone know if I could use my 53 pinion shaft and gear as long as I make sure the bushing in the cam cover is compatible?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: 53 FL Pinion

The diameter of your pinion shaft at the bearing surface is nominally 1". The '58 and later case race is used with a 1.250 diameter pinion shaft. Short answer: you need a later shaft and associated gears also.
