How to Install Rap 700 Case Support Plate

3 posts in this topic

Raptor 700 Cases Support plate

 

 

These plates help strengthen and support the RH Raptor 700 case which is Prone to cracking under high Hp/ drag racing applications.

 

IMO the case support works by keeping the Steel bearing race to Aluminum casting secure and un fractured.

 

If your crank is Not trued properly then you will continue to have issues even with the plate installed

 

By Reducing the flex and expansion of the aluminum around the bearing race  case life in increased.

 

These are a great addition to any performance build that will see excess of 80 hp

 

 

 

Pictured is the Cuervo Racing Case support plate with  5 bolt locations

 

Kit is $30

Locate Factory tapped holes above and below the Main bearing on your RH case half.
