Speaking of chainwheels. What do you make of this? The one with the smaller 8 holes seems to be the norm. Initially I just assumed one was early and one was from later on, but it was in with some parts that might suggest otherwise. The one with the larger holes hasn’t been drilled, the holes are cast in. I looked at older vs newer parts books and they all show the 8 hole version. Not that the drawings necessarily mean anything. There is no reference to Lightning using a different part # as is the case with some of the clutch bits including the drum, C3/1, C13/1 etc (which came in the same bin as the chain wheel)Don't forget to change the oil seal in the chainwheel,
I took a chance last time !!, Another Huge Mistake !, They sometimes look OK , But go hard,
And then fail. Cheers Bill.
It was actually his post that made me have a look..... thinking about boring a couple out to access the spring if it needs to be adjusted a bit. As mentioned, I assumed it was an age difference thing, but had to ask just in case. The earliest book I have and it’s fairly early... shows the smaller holes. The casting around the edge of the larger holes is a bit rough, so might be a good place for a crack to start.I think the ones with Big holes Must have been thought of as too weak,
Marcus the other day said how He made one of the small holes bigger ,
So He could get the sprung pawl out of the gearbox cover, Without taking the chain off.
Just squeeze a new plunger spring in the vice till it's coil bound, this will shorten it by about 2 mm
