TS Gearbox strip
« on: 18 Aug 2022 at 05:05 »
I have just bought a 1920 engine and a gearbox which I understand was from the same bike.


The nut that holds the chain sprocket on is really tight and before I do any damage could someone please tell me if its right hand or left hand thread.

Thanks

I have just found on the list of Threads that the nut holding the sprocket is 13/16" x 28tpi LEFT HAND.

I spent a few hours at the weekend getting the box apart and giving it a bit of a clean up.

I need to get some new bearings they are 2 x EE8 and 2 x R10, it would be nice to have sealed bearings and they are available but they are wider so wont fit.
There wasn't any gasket or sealing between the 2 parts of the housing, I will put it back together like that but does anyone caution against that ?
Interestingly the output gear is stamped WD.
