1951 A7 gearbox rebuild
« on: 07.11. 2013 05:52 »
Hi

Getting the gearbox parts together from aa heap of parts. The clutch thrust washer is missing. Any idea what the dimensions are for this. It's a split washer. Thanks

Hi Anj, you mean the thrust washer 67-3276/7/8 or the retaining collets/split rings/circlips that don't appear to be  listed in the parts books..?
  If you mean the collets, I think they're likely easy to make, or available from places like dragAnfly.....I bought some on eBay once but they never turned up

 Good luck

Look here, http://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php?topic=7709.0  #74 is part # 67-3251.
They wouldn't be too hard to make. Measure the width and depth of the groove in the shaft. They look to be a square section. Turn up a solid ring then cut in half.

I think that they are hardened.

I wasn't sure Trev, but I think you are right. Although nothing spins on them they are taking the load of the nut torque (< that sounds like me).
Heat treating a set made from an old car axle might work.

Hi

Just put together the bits & pieces of the gearbox that came with the dismantled bike & find end float on both the main & lay shafts. Parts all seem to be there but the float is definitely more than on my 1952 Flash. Any ideas on how to proceed. Where do I fit the shims in case that is the way out
Thanks
Anji

G'day Anji.
Are you sure you fitted #87 on the layshaft, and #101 & 102 on the mainshaft?
#'s 84 & 88 bushes may be worn on the thrust faces.
