Re: central bevel gear extractor

Is there play in the dist. drive gear or the tower shaft gears? That may be the way it left the factory. Dropping the gear down [if it can be done] may bind them up and raising the tower gears would introduce too much play. Is it quiet when running? To get the center bevel out it looks like the cra...

Re: central bevel gear extractor

ok thanks Craig, it would be really helpful to talk to someone who has actually some experience of these things. The engine has clearly been apart before, quite possibly more than once, and to hazard a guess, whoever did it made a pigs ear of it. It cannot have left the factory with that kind of mes...

Re: central bevel gear extractor

Well, I'm quite sure that the central bevel needs to come down by quite a ways, it can't be good for the engine running on the tips of the teeth like this? So, I'm following Steven Eke's book and I think I need to get a hold of a special tool to pull it out from the top and put in some shims/washers?

Re: central bevel gear extractor

hey craig, yes that the one, the central conical bevel gear. I thought I needed that extractor to pull it out from inside the distributor hole and put in some shims. How does one go about getting a proper mesh between the three bevel gears? Mine is a good millimeter and a half out, the central gear ...

central bevel gear extractor

Hi, I've noticed the meshing of this central bevel gear (the one on the distributor shaft) with the individual shafts is a long way out. Does anyone know where I can get a hold of one of these special extractors? Its referenced by part number 887130111.

Re: brembo and lockheed

hey steve thanks for that info and good to know about the p108's having the same mounting as these old lockheeds. I'm quite keen on using as much as possible that came with the bike though, simply because I don't have a bottomless wallet to throw at it. Do you think I can use the brembo 15mm master ...

Re: brembo and lockheed

the one thats standard on these bikes, cant recall its number, but its the same as on all the larger seventies italian bikes - maybe a F08 or something - it looks to be about 13mm. This is all I have in the boxes of parts, it looks like the discs will clear the calipers OK, they don't look like the ...

hi names jake, recomissioning a GT
