Not the first.. There were ummm.. two or three of us that did initial testing of TOC's MCCT. James, the owner, red Baron and me. I later asked James for a second MCCT since my other cylinder started the rattle.
Needless to say I am VERY happy with my prototypes and once set, I have not had to adjust them. The first one went on the front cylinder and has been working fine for over a year now. The back cylinder was added several months back.
No bolt length adjustment needed for the back one (which is a tight fit since it is by the coolant reservoir.) I did add a bit of teflon tape under the lock nut to prevent any oil seeping up the threads.
Once James gets these into production, I would highly recommend them. Heck I recommend them before he gets them into production!

....with some of the first....

I still have an extra set of stock ACCT housings to modify into manual ones.
I had thought about the possibility of oil leaking from them and considered a delrin (kinda like plastic, but much more sturdy) threaded insert to seal them at the adjusting bolt. If I make the threads a tight fit, it should seal everything just fine.

Well I got my MCCTs from TOC and installed them in 20 minutes. I did not get any pics of the process as I was done before my cam battery was charged up.



The front side was a snap. Just remove the 2 10 mm nuts, lever the Crome tab over the back stud (I used a pair of needle nose and just bent the tab for tube over the stud), and removed the ACCT.

WOW that was 2 easy LOL.

The install was even easier.

Insert the MCCT with the plunger backed all the way out and re bend the tube tab back over the rear stud. Replace the 2 nuts and tighten.

Now I looked all over and have read how much pressure you need to put on the adjuster before you lock it down and have gotten conflicting reports.

So I tightened it finger tight *when tighten it you will feel it make contact if you twist it a bit more you will feel the tensioned slide move a bit more this is the play its not more than a thread and a half. I then backed it off a smidge (I know real technical).

Now tighten the bottom bolt itís a 17 MM.

Now the rear took a little longer you will need to un bolt the coolant tank and Pull it out (you donít have to un hook any hoses). Now you have room to get at the back side nut I used a 2 inch extension on a 3/8 inch ratchet to loosen it. I then removed the front nut and pulled the ACCT free.

The install was the reverse (Have a 17 mm wrench handy to tighten the locking nut on the adjuster as it is a bit of a tight fit)

As for the adjustment I used my finger tight and back a smidge method.

Thatís the install.

I put 40 miles on it today and noticed a bit more torque and a quiet ride!

I have to say with the Ease of install, Cost, and performance gain TOC's MCCT's are worth it!

Sounds like a satisfied TOC customer
If/when I start hearing the ACCT slap again, I'm definately going with MCCT's.
Guess I better get my extra stock ones modded before then !!

Hmmm, sounds like I should do the same for Pris and Angel. Of course I just bought 4 TOC springs so I guess I'll just use the ACCTs till the new springs wear out.

tocmanufacturing.com, as far as I know they only have 2 of the beta units left. but the production set should be another month, month and a half. If you want the beta ones just email their sales department.
