    More to come, I have to balance the work with the editing, I also have a Yamaha project and two tube amplifier restorations underway competing for time. And, you know, a day job.

    The mainshaft has arrived this week from Canada and the bottom end of the engine will be picked up this weekend. The project will be resuming in short order.

    It's a LOT of hard work.....

    Ah, yes.... Its much more evident in the video, in pictures not much by way of context.


    I threw the bearing in the freezer for an hour as I staged the press. When I got ready to go, on the first push the bearing fell into the race. Closer investigation showed that this race had seen a degree of bearing spin in its day. Rather than replace it for 50$, I just peened it randomly to bring in the ID for the bearing and lightly coated it with red LT before pressing. A standard repair.

    This was completely unnecessary, as the retaining plate captures the outer race of that ball bearing, preventing it ever spinning. The mounting cup or sleeve is not a race, and is normally a slip fit on the bearing. As it is a light press into the case, it will tighten up a little on the OD of the bearing when all is installed in the case. What you did certainly won't hurt anything, but you didn't gain anything either.

    Yeah its true the plate prevents slipping, but anything press fit that 'falls' into a race is not fit as prescribed regardless. The remediation was still more prudent than leaving it alone. If the extra 5 minutes of work to do this was unnecessary, guilty as charged i suppose.

    Is this on the timing side? I don’t know much about cow pies as I threw mine away and opted to build a ratchet. But that bearing/race fit was the only thing that held the mainshaft from walking to the primary side and would completely slack my clutch when it decided to. Took me a lot of tear downs to figure that one out

    The bearing retainer plate holds the bearing in place. If you have a mainshaft walking, the shaft nut is loose or stripped. All four speeds are set up essentially the same, regardless of the shifter top.
