Lakewood Quicktime Blowproof Bell

Those of you that run one, how much of a PIA is it to get it to work with our clutches? Currently 3 disk valair but may convert to 4 disk valair. I know at one time they weren't spun deep enough and some pretty good grinding was needed. Not really wanting to do that on the already thin bell housing. Browell not in the budget, it's either Lakewood or stock nv with blanket. Any input appreciated. Thanks.

Have a 5/8" thick spacer made to fit between the bell and the spacer on the cummins block. Any shop with a Water jet or laser can do this fairly cheaply. Mine was Aluminum.

Sticking with my three disc clutch that would require me getting a longer input shaft on the reverser I already have. I believe the spacer will be necessary and a longer input shaft if I decide to go to for disc.

Just trying to offset the cost of the Stroud blanket. When I sold my last truck the blanket went with it. The blanket is over half the cost of the Bell so I would rather go with the Bell if it's not too big of a PIA.

I have done one truck with a i believe a 3/4 spacer with a Kenney's 4 disc 12 stand, would have to go back and measure. It has a nv4500 bell with a scs reverser on it. It's a pretty sweet setup needed no modification.

Then another with a 1/2" spacer and a browel bell with kenny's small 4 disc and the bell itself needed some work to get the fork to sit far enough back. Nothing terrible just wasn't a drop in. The nv4500 I used already had a longer input from a old 3 South bend clutch and that part worked out nicely.

Several ways to do it. Valiar has GREAT products, not trying to take anything away from them but a 12stand clutch is the only way to go. I tell guys now if you need to save some money id do it somewhere else. Buy the best clutch they make and skimp on something else. We had over 150 hooks at 1500hp before it needed adjusting, and then adjusting is a breeze.

If funds allow I will heed your advice on the clutch. Can you tell me what clutch you are referring too and I'll look into it. It is something I planned on doing but going deckplate and ODL is my first priorities. I do not want this block to split and have broken everything in my driveline at least once this year besides driveshafts and clutch.
