It's a way to adjust the way the front out-put of the transfer case sits in the vehicle in relationship to the ground. It is typically done with a clocking ring, although it is sometimes possible to re-drill your existing t-case adapter.

Might want to clarify if this a chevy or ford, and if you're looking head on or from the back. Otherwise it won't be very clear what you're showing.

It's not a Chevy or a Ford, it's Jeep. Can't you tell?

The diagram works regardless of the make, drop, or direction.

One end is clocked up or down around the centerline of the rear output.

What difference does it make? He's just giving the basic idea about what clocking is.

Also, a lot of people clock their cases upwards to give a flat or close to flat belly for clearance over obstacles.

I've always heard good things about those Hoovers, the new quad stick Dyson with AVTCC is the shit though (automatic variable transfer case clocking)
