Clocking a transfer case

Hi. I have been searching and cannot find what clocking does. Can anyone please explain? Im planning a tummy tuck at chassis rail level and clocking kept coming up. Before anyone says it yes i realize i need to chop the interior up. That is fine with me.
Thankyou.

It is a word used by those who know what tummy tucking is.

Did you mean locking, like in, locking a differential?

It came up in a few google results when i was researching tummy tucks and im not sure what it does. My guess is that it allows the transfer case to be moved by putting an adaptor between the engine and tc. I always wondered how the tc could be raised without moving the engine as well. In case i have anything wrong im not done researching.
Anyway if anyone could explain what clocking does it would be much appreciated.
Thankyou.

When you clock the tcase you rotate it upward to create more ground clearence. Often an adapter plate is needed between the tcase and the transmission, Novak and Advanced Adaptors sells them. Not all tcases can be clocked.

Its not raising the entire case, its rotating it around the axis of the transmission output. This can create space by move the front output side of the TC up. It can though then mean mounting holes between trans and TC don't line up so you need an adapting ring.

If you look at the mounting holes on the back of the transmission and look at the holes as it was the face of a clock. (Hense, clocking ring) The ring will bolt up to the face of the transmission just like the transfercase does. Now the ring will have a new set of holes to mount the transfercase to. Some will have 3 or 4 choices to mount to but say the one before the ring was at the 4 o-clock position you can now use the 3 o-clock position and this will rotate the transfercase and the lower part will raise up to be flatter. You can also use one with a AX15 or a NV3500 to mount a Dana 300 to it and change it from a drivers side drop to a passenger side drop and use it in a CJ.

Being a neophyte , a converted heathen, I had never herd of a Tummy Tuck. When clocking was found in researching it by Motas, another, I guessed, acronym, in the jungle us heathens find ourselves in, Motas would find that as funny as we did. I was wrong, and got out of it the best I could. With all this I have learned a lot, through the help of 1986cj. A Tummy Tuck would get rid of the line I put down the center of our dirt road, Clocking is a way of describing the movement of my TC.

Thanks for your help guys i understand now. Would there be any real point in clocking it over raising it up with a flat chassis to chassis plate? I realize it needs to be braced and body modified.
