Prevent your flex plate from coming loose with the BD Diamond Bite Shim kit. In high-performance scenarios, the forces exerted on the flexplate can lead to slippage, even with correctly installed and torqued bolts. A slight movement is all it takes for the bolts to loosen, allowing the flexplate to oscillate against the crankshaft and potentially causing expensive and catastrophic damage to both components.
The BD Diamond Bite Shims, featuring a diamond-embedded electroless nickel coating, establish a micro-bite between the flexplate surfaces, resulting in a significant increase in friction. This enhanced friction prevents the flexplate from slipping, enabling it to effectively handle the elevated torque loads typically associated with diesel engines. The kit comes highly recommended for applications demanding high output and heavy-duty performance in Cummins 1994-up 5.9L/6.7L engines.
