Re: gear change indicator

Hi Johnny When I restored my GB44 I bought the parts from Draganfly - the seal fitted fine and looked identical to the one I removed. An O ring or two will do at a push and can easily be replaced once you get a correct seal, just remove the indicator and pick out the the O ring(s) with a pin. Regard...

Re: TWO PROBLEMS

Hi Johnny Rather than operate the kick start try spinning the main shaft as you select gears - don't apply too much pressure to the gear change, it sounds as if things may just be a little stiff/dry. An over length oil seal would give the problem you are having with the spring - not the best photo b...

Re: TWO PROBLEMS

Hi You are spinning the main shaft as you try to select the gears are'n't you ;) Can't really think what can go wrong if it all slipped back together - did you oil the selector drum indexing plunger assembly? The indicator oil seal on my gearboxes sit flush with the case when installed, the spring i...

Hi Johnny

No, I don't see why it would have - the ball is captive between the plunger, rod and main shaft.

Re: RATCHET WASHER

Hi Johnny I tend to use 3/8" drive tools in these circumstances and my ratchet wrench is about 8" long so based on that I guess I applied around 15 to 20 lbf torque, it doesn't need to be that tight if the lock washer functions. Re the clutch locking tool - if you have a spare plain plate ...

Re: RATCHET WASHER

how do i lock or hold the shaft to tighten the nut up or will i have to fit the clutch to hold it Hi If you have a clutch holding tool, (the type made from old plates or similar), you can just loosely fit the clutch center and hold it with the tool as you tighten the ratchet nut - failing that it's...

Re: RATCHET WASHER

Hi I'd cut a slot in the ratchet to accept the lock washer tab - otherwise the lock washer is effectively just a washer. Both my 58 GB44 and 54 GB6 have the slot machined in. The spring for the gear indication system goes onto the shaft after the outer case is installed and before the indicator and ...
