I bought the clocking ring off of ebay for around $75 dollars. It came with all the hardware and is a nice unit. You have to purchase a speedi sleeve since the clocking ring moves the seal on the tranny adapter out past the input shaft. The sleeve was about $20 bucks.

For others who are rebuilding their 300 and want to clock it, JB Conversions and Advance Adapters sell input shaft housings that are clockable and replace the factory one. They don't add any length or require a speedi-sleeve to work.

Just another option to think about

Yes the ones that Advance and JB have are very nice; however, they are over $200.00 and require the removal of the input shaft. (Not a big deal though)

Is that Rustoleum Hammered silver and black paint? Looks good what ever it is. Nice job on the rebuild/thread.

What is the purpose of clocking the D300? Sorry for the dumb question, just trying to consider all options and learn as much as possible before starting my CJ rebuild.

I clocked my Dana 300 so I could increase my ground clearance and reduce the risk of banging my transfer case on something. I do not believe there is any mechanical advantage to clocking the transfer case.

At the time I wasn't really thinking about a 4:1 kit. I was just going to restore the Jeep. Now is a different story. I wish that I had done it but there is always time. It went from stock to a 5.3 vortec, 4l60e tranny, Dana 300, Dana 44's front and rear with ARB's and 4.10 gears. Working on the body now. Just finished block sanding the first three coats of primer and hopefully will spray a few more coats tomorrow. Once it warms up some then time for some color. Still a ton of little things to complete on the Jeep but it is coming along. There is always something to do.

Thanks

I'm about to do this very rebuild/Clock/4:1 conversion. Grabbed my jeep about 2 weeks ago with no H gears.
So this is first on my list. Thanks for the breakdown.

Good luck on the rebuild. It is really pretty easy just take your time and take pictures of everything. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I am by no means an expert but did take a ton of photos.

Will do man.
Waiting on parts still, but should have it out and accessible this weekend....
At least crack it open and clean everything.
