Yeah, I’d do that but trouble is the surface ain’t flat no more - washer / broken pin have eaten it up. To do it right (I think?) I should make that surface good again in the lathe (pin needs to come out), then I’m stuck because all the washers are too thin (unless I can maybe just get away with one of the thicker ones). Worst case scenario I was thinking make / heat treat a new washer or braze two together and then have them ground to correct thickness. Brazing would probably mess up the hardness, maybe another means of sticking them together. I’m open to suggestions, and / or being told I’m over thinking it.

I messed with it a bit, it’s not coming out. Will just have to grind it back a touch more than whatever I skim off, which will hopefully be very little.

Trans back in (I’m reluctant to use the word ‘finished‘), see other thread.

Have x 3 of the 0.007 shims fitted to the kicker shaft and end up with 0.002 end play.

Confused here, staring at parts and trying to work out what’s what and what will fit / work.

Top one is the orig fitted part with spring retainer as part of bushing. Lower one has spring retainer as part of gear.

This happened in 74?

The clutch / kicker spacer fitted was 1.007, I have an aftermarket one which is 1.047 (the service part), and a NOS one which is 1.062.

Next step is to figure out which size I actually need - ie., the 0.040 clearance.

correct.that's the-73 revision.there should be a Teflon? coating on the bushing surface when new.

Thanks. I assume the later part is interchangeable, dimensionally it appears the same, and it’s what I have.

Need the clutch drum together to get the clearance measurement to move forward. So...



Old pin got the Dremel treatment to take it below the surface.



Old spacer got the diamond whetstone treatment to put some marks in it, which I’m hoping will hold grinding paste. (It’s still flat.)



Who knows if this will work?

Worth a try as the next step will be taking it to a machine shop to skim off.

correct again.i used that style with no issues.when it wore out I went back to the earlier set up after reading all of D.D.'s posts. I might go back to the -73 at some point.

After 20 minutes or so....



I foresee a trip to a machine shop in my future, though I’ll probably give it a bit more time tomorrow. Maybe I’m just impatient, there’s other stuff I can work on while this is away if it comes to that.

This drum seems to be rare? Most I’ve seen have two needle roller bearings fitted, this one has only one race.

the double bearing drum is more rare.it didn't come out until 1967 for the electric start xlh.the single bearing was used from 1957 until '66 on both xlch and xlh.til 69 on ch only.
