What is correct method to measure crank runout
Got a question here that I cant seem to find an answer to. When measuring crank runout on a TC, is it measured at the nose on the right side or is it more precise to measure from the compensator side?
Reason is I have always seen it done where the dial indicator is mounted in a block bolted to the cam chest, I had a dealer show me my run out from a vice grip clamped to the frame and the snake arm bent up holding the DI on the nose tip. They claimed .004-005, but I could tap the snake arm with my fingernail and easily see a couple thousandths movement.
Would anyone with engine experience agree with me that the setup used is basically inaccurate?
NOTE: It is a welded crank with chain drive cams, it was taken apart because of a cut o ring and was sumping, it has a Feuling race pump which is red and there was a ever so slight brush mark in the red coating not really any wear on the pump housing.
Thanks again in advance for any info.
