Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Craig,

Thanks as always for the good info, and especially for the dimensions of the clutch pushrod pieces.

Regards,
Richard

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Hi Craig, Here is a link to a pic showing clutch rods et al: https://www.flickr.com/photos/124760992@N02/29603309248/in/dateposted-public/ The pieces sitting on the balsa rail are the old pieces in the order of removal; there are TEN pieces (TEN pieces; REALLY?). You can see a bit of surface rust on...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Hi Craig, Thanks kindly for the comments. I came to the same conclusion, since my engine serial number of 851539 is above the threshold, and went ahead and assembled without the washer (which I didn't have anyway). I am putting the matter to bed and will forge on, bagging the mystery washers and tag...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

… and, to make matters even more confusing to me, the clutch drawing that Steve posted under the topic Clutch pushrod info shows the clutch for the 900 , which does not have the said washer #35. The mystery grows. Somewhere, there has to be either an answer or a mental health specialist (besides the...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Gentlemen: Now this is getting really confusing. Craig, the washer you pointed out in the drawing sits between the clutch "basket/housing" and the clutch "drum" (the smaller unit that fits inside the drum and has five spline teeth). That being the case, the part number listed, 022.84.035, in the par...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Hi Craig, Another issue on this bike, one that has existed since I bought it new: when leaving from a stop in first gear, the clutch was extremely sensitive to chattering, unless I finessed it (not possible when leaving quickly) and remembered to hold my mouth right as well when engaging the clutch(...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Hi Craig, Thanks for the info; isn't that giant beginning to sag under your weight on his shoulders? My engine's number, as stamped into the case at the rear, is 851539, well above the threshold. I shall look at things more closely, thanks to your illustration. As it's been quite a while since the o...

Re: 860GT flywheel pinion washers

Correction! Now I'm really confused. The washers I mentioned on the previous post are approx. 0.35 mm inside diameter and .43-.45 mm outside diameter. Clearly, These are not the ones that I found behind the pinion tab washer. When I ordered them, I thought I was ordering replacement for the ones beh...

860GT flywheel pinion washers

To the League of Fine Gentlemen: I'm really showing my ignorance on this question: Two rather thin and narrow washers, p/n's 0755.47.050 and 0755.47.060 , which are 0.2 and 0.3 mm thick respectively, as shown in the 860GT parts manual crankshaft assembly picture, sit behind tab washer p/n 0755.47.09...

Re: Flywheel/clutch gear torque

Thanks kindly, Craig,

As always, your info is very comprehensive, and quite reliably forestalls potential screwups (which I REALLY appreciate), on my venerable 860GT.

Best Regards,
Richard

Re: Flywheel/clutch gear torque

Thanks Gentlemen. In my original comments, I had mentioned that I had yet to install the clutch, thus the clutch gear would not be present. I am concluding that your recommendations do, in fact, warrant the clutch reinstallation to give a "stop" to the crankshaft rather than cross-torqueing it from ...

Flywheel/clutch gear torque

I just wanna be sure: Since the torque for securing the crankshaft nut holding the flywheel/clutch engagement gear is quite considerable, and since I have the clutch basket assembly off until I replace the disks and thus cannot use the clutch holding tool, I need to hold the crankshaft still while t...

Re: Tab washer bender tool

Yeah, Guido would either have done it with his bare hands, or have had a hired hand who would have done so. As for your other comment, I found the ultimate bore-specific fitting tool from Summit Racing; if you want details, please let me know, and I will gather the info and send it to you. Price was...

Re: Tab washer bender tool

Got it; thank you.

Tried both my channel locks and one of my Vise Grips, and they will both fit, so that's a relief.

Re: Tab washer bender tool

Yeah, Thanks, Craig, That idea had popped up in the cobwebs of my brain as well. I was just trying to avoid putting a lot of torque on the facet of the nut, since the bending tools I have seen have a "pin" that centers on the shaft that the nut is screwed onto, thereby avoiding said torque. But, I'l...
