Re: Lower bevel gear spindle shimming - Darmah

The only reference I have found only adds to my confusion where Ian Fallon does mention "After the side bushes are fitted the two pins with thrust washers are installed. The straight cut gears and outer thrust washers follow. The timing marks should line up with the central gear." Thrust washers ? ...

Re: Alternator stator ring plug

Hi Rick, Since there is no bearing in the case (P/N 0759.49.400) that the alternator stator mounts into, I must conclude that the chamfered edge of the distance piece going toward the bearing in mention really means toward the center of the engine, and not outward. There are three bearings on the pl...

Re: Alternator stator ring plug

Hi Rick Got it, ta. According to the workshop manual, the chamfered end goes towards the bearing . Ref. page 105, Montaggio del rotore magnetico dell'alternatore . Your problem is due (again :shock: ) to the crap translation of the original Italian. What the Italian says is: "1. Montare sull'albero ...

Re: Alternator stator ring plug

Hi Rick, Ok, I'm confused .... :) Here's the parts book page for the early 860. I've highlighted the part with # 0400.46.040 and description Tappo per ghiera (mis-translated as "Ring plug". It should be something like ferrule cover/sealer/closer). And that ain't right. http://imghst.co/90/!axwM&vgUq...

Re: head bracket factory numbers

860S # 850xxx # Is the VIN number DGM # 13xxx # is the part number Not so, to be accurate. The " 860S # 850xxx" number is the FRAME number. VINs (Vehicle Identification Number) did not exist at the time. If your rego authority (or whoever) is asking for a VIN, use either the frame number or the eng...

Re: Flywheel Removal Help

Hi and Welcome to the Forum. You HAVE to use the right puller - and even then it might need some heat and persuasion. These pullers seem to be not so easy to find these days; but go, for example: https://store.bevelheaven.com/Tools/Magneto-Puller-OHC-Singles/ ... and read what Steve says. Because th...

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...

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?

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 ...
