Checking Run-Out On R3 Avanti Engine

Every factory engine and transmission is aligned and dowel pinned at the factory.  The dowel pins were missing from the previous engine work - approximately 20+ years ago.  I checked the  alignment and used oversize pins to hold the center line of both crankshaft and transmission.  These have to be on the same plane or the flex-plate will crack and/or break and the front pump of the transmission will wear out or break.
