Re: Gearbox locked after rebuild

Update, stripped and rebuilt, due to a combination of a warped oil seal retaining plate and crap gearbox shimming caused by a dodgy SIL rear bearing [emoji52]
Fixed now[emoji846]

Re: 28 phbh leaking

Thanks Garry, stripped carb, washer is present. However, ive noticed the floats seem stuck when i refit the bowl. The floats are free when the bowls off then when the bowls on i can't hear movement and when I blow down inlet it doesn't block when I turn the carb upside down. Sent from my SM-G780F us...

28 phbh leaking

Its running like a tap from the overflow pipe in the float bowl, the floats move up and down freely and dont seem to be burst. Ive blow down the intake and the valve seems to shut ok.
Cheers chaps.

Li clutch actuator assembly

Does anyone have a picture of a fitted Li clutch actuator assembly? I can't remember if they have a shim and circlip in the middle. There's a decent vid on YouTube for a gp but not Li, and there's not much info in stickys book. Thanks

Re: Gearbox locked after rebuild

Cheers Gary, gonna go for a strip out of whole gb including bearing. I'll try another combination of different layshaft, bearing and endplate, as gearbox is sfiff as f'''', even with a 1.6 shim. Maybe its due to using a new SIL gp 200 gb and an endplate with a new bush?

Re: Gearbox locked after rebuild

Having tried to see where the kickstart shaft is hitting the clutch ( covered it in marking blue) and found no marks, I have rebuilt the kickstart mechanism, found bushes protruding and corrected, re-shimmed etc. Still Jammed :? . I have noticed that with the whole clutch removed the kickstart turns...

Re: Gearbox locked after rebuild

Cheers gents, i should have remembered that, i naively thought the sidecase from my smallblock would go on with no issues, as its the same clutch. Took the decision to remake the kickstart mech and noticed the inner bush was a little proud, so ive fixed that and will try again when I'm back in the g...
