Default Race lapping tools

Inexpensive industrial expandable lapping arbors that could be used to lap rod races, main bearing races, tranny mainshaft output race etc are here:

(brass barrel)
http://www.acrolaps.com/index_009.htm

http://www.acrolaps.com/index.htm


And here:
(Hardened steel barrel)
http://www.americanlap.com/Expanding%20Mandrels.htm


You would need a lathe to make up the aligning extensions for the tranny bearing and main bearing lapping, but should work straight up for con rod races.

I just confirmed this by using this puller. Came off easy. Now putting a new one on may be harder. I only have a small press...

I've never seen a Sporty sprocket shaft that didn't have a lip/bearing seat on it. If that lip contacts the flywheel before the shaft taper seats in the flywheel, you've got problems.

There is a tool used to install the gear.
The tool has 5/16-24 left hand threads which screw into your crank spindle.
You can press this gear on if you do not have the tool, but using the tool is the preferred way of doing it.
I do not have the factory tool myself but made my own as pictured here..........
