Good info, thanks. If I ever replace I’ll look out for the twin bearing one. For now I’ll try to salvage this one.

Grinding past made mince meat of the shim - I thought it would be harder than the drum, which is barely touched.



Oh well, fat chance it would have been even anyway, time for plan B.

Maybe that’s why my tin primary was eaten up, someone tried it. Nothing else I can put it down to so far.

Worked on clutch hub this eve. Took off high spots, some marks visible as I didn’t want to take off too much. Then wrapped a strip of emery round it and took of any marks on the top surf. See how it goes, I can buy another when one comes up and I can afford it if necessary.

Clutch drum has been given the DR DICK treatment thanks to a friend with a machine shop



There are still some marks on the lower surface but I think it will work - beats my efforts anyway. The weird thing is that it was dry inside before even with the broken pin mess and 0.009 clearance.

Like an idiot I bought a full set before I fully understood what I needed to do. Doing it this way you can pick any size washer you like and cut the upper surface where the ratchet gear sits to suit. Actually I wouldn’t buy variable size washers of any type again, just buy the thickest one and grind it to the size needed on the lathe in any other scenario (eg. trans).

I was thinking of back cutting the gear in place after riveting it on. Ideally I’d have the done this with the clutch gear out to test fit, but got carried away with the gearbox and it’s all back together now, so might make a dummy clutch gear shaft.

Any opinions?
