Hi Scott
The Spacer shown top right is 1"Dia x 0.325" identical to spacer outside of speedo drive, I think this is what you are referring to. Just looked in Haynes manual page 93,fig 8.1a looks the same. Fig 8.1c appears to show a sleeve similar to my hub but on my hub sleeve is flush with top face.

Woodt

That looks right to me from memory, I dont have a hub at hand to look at to compare but it certainly looks right Once the bearing is fitted and then the spacer it should sit proud of the hub so that the inner of the speedo drive sits against it and the drive can be driven with the hub without the speedo casing moving round

Heard from the Guys repairing the plunger threads in the frame today, no end of bracing and men holding the frame, it apparently still sounded like a harmonica when they tried to cut out the worn thread. Just need threaded bushes welding into bored holes.

Clutch



Guys, is there a min thickness for these plates? Can any thing be ground off to clean up?

Hi
As long as they are FLAT they are ok with pits etc' on them. Just spin them on whatever contraption you can get with emery cloth to clean off the surface. I seriously doubt that they could be turned or ground without taking off too much material. If you have no way to spin them, many years ago we would put a large piece of emery or sandpaper on a very flat surface and literally hand grind them in. Nicely takes the burrs off the internal ?splines? also. Never had a problem with them. If not FLAT the clutch will drag and make you crazy trying to adjust/fix it....:D

Why bother making the plates any thinner and smoother?
The clutch, when it's being used, will do that for you. :)

The plain plates are slighty dished about 0.003" and one of them varies in thickness by 0.002", is this ok? Other 2 within 0.0005".

FRAME



Yeah, Got the frame back today, spent an hour or so dressing back the weld to parent metal, quite pleased with the result. Had to re-tap the bushes to remove spatter and where bushes had closed in a little from welding(to be expected). Worth the wait. Especially after seeing the price of a frame on Hebay, 400 smackers. Just need to rub down frame to remove rust pitting..

Even with the legshields I thought the cub would have afew more hp & be a little more aerodynamic than `The Shed` and therefore cheaper to run;)

Manuals



Just got hold of original Instruction Manual & Parts Catalogue for my cub, well pleased, good things come to those who wait.:D Was hoping to find some at Stafford, but obviously wasnít lookin hard enough. Found plenty of copyís for more than I just paid.:P

Frame now ready for painting/powder coating. All rust pitting rubbed down, quite pleased with the result so far this will greatly improve the appearance when finished. Still havenít decided which way to go. To be honest, waiting to see what deals i can find relative to cost, will probably be paint though.

If you have the earlier one with a bloke with no helmet, and a pair of goggles, grinning as he rides, you don't need the one shown above.

The one above is a catch all that covers plunger frames, swing arm, and LW and HW forks.

i picked up one for £6 last year, more to use in the garage, and keep the original clean, than any real need.

Finally bit the bullet, after Umming and Ahhing, Tossing & Turning, playing smooth Hammerite rattle cans over the frame ( you live & learn). I took the frame to a recommended professional Powder Coating`ist in Bristol. Have to wait about 3 weeks as he is very busy.

Im sure it will be worth the wait.
