Default Trick Titanium bellhousings

So whats the fix after you have a new legal liner fitted up to the flange to pass tech.
Now my 168 tooth flywheel and clutch assembly won't fit inside the can because the new liner prevents this .

Anybody else in this same scenario ?

smaller flywheel & move the starter unless you can trim back the liner.

They should have called before starting any work, to confirm your application (flywheel size) and that you were aware of the new liner requirement and additional cost. I run a 142 tooth flywheel so it and the starter fit within the single 0.078 thick liner. Initially they called and told me that I needed two 0.050 thick liners for an additional $200 each.

We used a flywheel and a starter from ATI.Products.(for an auto trans set up)The flywheel is smaller in dia. And has larger teeth.They make a starter that fits this assembly.

We have this problem as well Tim. Was over at Andy's last week and he showed us his own flywheel (Ram I think) that he has installed a smaller ring gear on (166 teeth?) to clear the liner. Give him a call as it looks quite straight forward.
We bought Graham's leanders bros clutches and they look tricky to adapt to the new rules ie expensive

Who makes these 164 tooth flywheels and do you have to get a different starter or can you alter existing starters.
I have a Tilton starter.
Getting the liner updated is no problem over here as we have a Trick Titanium UK dealer who is licenced to carry out alterations/repairs/updates and SFI recertification.

So how did trick titanium get away with illegal cans and liners for so long? And are they offering new FREE LEGAL cans to all those they screwed on the illegal ones?

Everyones been screwed over - been illegal for a long time.
Now it's been pointed out to them they should be replacing everyones liner for free to bring it up to SFI spec like it should have been when they sold it to us in the first place.

Any mfg. who has sold a can that is not within the spec they claimed it to be should be fixing the cans for free including a new tag . Maybe these mfg's should have their SFI status removed for selling bogus products .

Who said anything about illegal bellhousings? The SFI spec was modified on August 15, 2012. The word I was given was that all new bells had to have the liner to the flange to meet the spec and all used bells were ok as is until the end of the current cert where they then had to have the liners extended to be recerted.

Pretty sure Aug 15 was just a clarification of what was required to meet 6.3.

I heard a rumor that there were missing bolts on the can but don't know this for certain.
But I did witness the guy on the spectator bank with a hole in his chest bleeding out quickly - died on his way to hospital.
