Re: Flywheel Follies

kannonballer,

Well done! Glad it has worked out well.

Any chance you could take a few minutes to describe how you built the pushrods?

Best,

Jeff

Re: Napa Part Numbers

See this thread for a bunch of U-Joint part numbers. I don't have the measurements handy right now. Second page about 4 or 5 down.

Re: A Cautionary Tale

Rob, Glad you noticed the fire and were able to handle the situation so easily. Your story reminded me of two fires in my shop last year. Those are the only fires I've had in 18 years at the time. First fire was during the summer, I think a few weeks before the Sturgis rally. I had met two French si...

Re: New Tool!!

With a hole saw it must have a way to remove the chips from between the teeth. On flat stock drill a few holes around the cut so the chips can fall through. On the tube consider backing the saw out of the cut and/or using a chip brush to remove chips. Cutting oil also helps a lot with the cut and pr...

Rob,

Nice work. Thanks for sharing with us.

If you get a bit of time can you briefly describe the plating process and ingredients?

Best,

Re: Bogging at speed -- MT-11

Maybe see if it is only doing it at 55mph or if it is really engine speed and load. Maybe try 3rd gear on a steep hill at about the same engine rpm or even a bit faster. It might just be a fuel delivery issue and the higher load in 4th gear is allowing it to show up.

Good luck,

Jeff

Re: Steering head nut loosens

My guess is the top nut should be torqued to somewhere between 30 and 75 foot pounds depending on what seems to work. I'd probably start at a lower value and increase as needed until it stops loosening. I don't see any specifications in the owner or repair manual. A good grunt is probably a good sta...

Re: 2018 Gear-Up sidecar spotlights not working

You need a volt meter and start tracing power. First check is at the fuse. Next one is at the switch. If power to the light, then at the light. Bad LED possible, if there is power to the light then its a bad light. If there is power to the light and the light doesn't light it could also be a bad gr...

Re: throttle help

If that's all it is it should be pretty easy to make one using common hand tools and the old pin and piece of chain.

Drill the holes and cut the slot while it is still attached to a larger piece of metal before roughing out the piece and then finishing to size.

Best,

Jeff

Re: Fixing up the "mistake"

I like the oxacilic acid as noted above. I have a gallon of Evaporust in the shop but with the new garage project and K9 training this year I just haven't had time to give it a try. I expect it will also work well although I don't know how it reacts with painted surfaces. Here is a note from my stas...

Eric N,

Yup, we were both talking fruit but you were talking apples and I was talking oranges. Makes sense to me now that I understand what you are trying to accomplish.
