Re: Overflowing Carb

I discovered that the banjos do not appear to be seating right into the rear carb. I did another test late last night and it appears that I can get it to seat properly with a lot of fiddling. Stupid question ... You do have the fuel filters in place? And the felt washers under the bolts? I know if ...

Re: '75 860GT in San Francisco

<snip> The back of the frame under the seat looks suspicious to me, and I have assumed it was cut and rewelded. I'll take a picture to see if anyone can confirm that. Ah, that's further proof that the bike started out as a GT with the duck-tail seat. As you can see from below, the back of the frame...

Re: '75 860GT in San Francisco

Craig, I'm not sure about anything. I assumed this was a '75 that didn't sell and received the updated bodywork from the GTS line to finally sell. Frame# 85035X Engine# 85008X My assumption was that these are quite early numbers ... <snip> Yup, reckon you're right. According to Ian Falloon - and si...

Re: Overflowing Carb

Float height is now correctly set ... <snip> What height did you set it to? <snip> ... is it possible for the gas to be entering the float bowl area from anywhere other than the {cut} float needle? No. I'm not sure of the function of the non-return valve in the float bowl, should I be suspicious of...

I recently read something of a float that wasn't freely moving all the way, down to up.
Not uncommon. Try tapping the side of the float bowl to release the float.

Re: '75 860GT in San Francisco

Nice looking bike Jason <> . They are a good ride. Looks like it's had some sensible mods over the years - GTS fuel tank and seat for starters. Double discs as well. And stainless guards. Nice rims, too! Just to satisfy the curious: are you sure about the year? Can you say what the engine and frame ...

You got a little machine shop near you? If so, might be easiest to ask them to make you up a steel washer 36 x 65.5 x 1.5 ...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

My best guess will be to put all of the new pieces in, per the "newest" drawing in the manual, the one for my 851539 engine. Agree, Richard. The critical thing is that your push rods match the rest of the clutch assembly. And at this stage, without evidence to the contrary, you have to assume that ...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

There are many variations on pushrod group configurations <snip> This is at least partly down to minor changes that Ducati made to the crankcases over the course of production. One of the reasons you have that train of bits is to compensate for any slight differences in the mating of the crankcase ...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Hi Richard, 1. Washer 022.84.035: Your engine number being 851539, you don’t need it (see my earlier post). Look at the drawing below and compare it with the one for the earlier engines. You'll see the washer just ain't there no more ;) . So forget it, put it out of your head, assign it to oblivion,...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Does seem strange, Richard. I haven't heard of anyone complaining of clutch chatter on a 860 before. After 851193, both the clutch centre and the basket carry different part numbers, so it seems that both were modified. But I don't know what those changes were - you'd probably need to have the parts...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Hi Richard, As I think you've worked out ;) , 0755.47.050/060 are thrust washers that fit on the end of the crank, inside of the left crankcase, to take up any end float in the crank when it's installed in the crankcases. As for your mystery washers, I don't recall there being anything sitting on th...

Re: Flywheel/clutch gear torque

<snip> ... my venerable 860GT. Woops. I need to correct myself a little, Richard - for some reason I thought you had a 750. My bad. Errr ... The method for torquing the flywheel nut is the same. However, I notice that the torque value for the clutch centre nut is different, 860 vs. Dramah: 7 Kgm (=...
