How to Determine the Engine Flywheel Offset
Jeff & Jim tackle a common question that we receive here at Palmer Johnson Power Systems, “How do you measure the offset of an industrial engine?” They provide instructions on how to measure the offset of an industrial engine properly.
Being able to provide the engine offset is required in new applications and repowers of several pieces of drivetrain components in industrial off-highway equipment such as gearboxes, pump drives, transmissions, transfer cases, PTOs, couplings, and more.
