Primary chaincase disaster

Postby Dave.Barkshire » Mon Jan 14, 2019 9:16 am

Here is my latest disaster. After a good winter hack and nearly home something let go in the primary chain area. (1938 VH)

There was a sudden scraping sound which sounded like some tinware was dragging along the ground. My guess is that the nuts have come off the crankshaft (again). This casing will soon be more weld than original metal.
