Re: Need rim info for 1975 Ducati 860GT

It could be that procedures were a bit changed since the 80's but when I had my rims anodised then, they came out rather dull, and CERTAINLY not so shiny as a polished or chromed rim. Rear wheel2.jpg I had two sets, and the other set is just the same, rusted discs but everything else is dusty. No co...

Re: 860GT Rear Wheel Drum Brake Spacer Quest for Clarification

From memory now : both the drumbrake and the sprocketcarrier have the inside triangular shaped. The width of that shape is what keeps the bearings (2 in each) apart, therefore the spacer that is fitted is at least 0.1 mm longer and probably 0.5 mm. The shape of the spacer on the outside of the carri...

Re: Taillight ???... for Mike Hailwood TT Replica, anybody knows ?

Since the Honda 750 was meant for the worldmarket and "safety-features" in the states were very strict, I really doubt that the taillight was japanese. The form is such that it would rather be on a 125 Italian bike from the 80's, with slim single-seats and very light weight to perform in the SP125 c...

Re: 1974 750 GT carb question

It could be a leak in the intake between carb and manifold/head. Didn't You mention cracked rubbers between manifold and head ? Or on some of the newer type manifolds : the rubber ring between manifold and head. The plastic bushing between carb and manifold that is split and doens't seal properly. c...

Re: 860GT rear wheel hub mystery piece

Just a distancepiece between the bearings.
Grease to keep it relative in place, as is the ring.

Re: Wheel surprises

The rim of the frontwheel looks like a 4777 ;) ;)
If those are stainless steel spokes, they could be Original Moto Guzzi.
The 6bolt carriers are made by Grimeca to fit Guzzi and Ducati.
The discs are EBC floaters.
All in all a nice and working upgrade :-D :-D

Re: Frame material

You mean You want to replace the back downtube of a Darmah , the one that goes from the rear engineplate to the toprails ? WITH a dent, a bend AND the "modification" for a bigger battery ? Why not look for a old, damaged frame and cut out that part, so that You can use the engine (or a template) to ...

Re: Neutral switch paradox

Inner covers are interchangeable : singles (4 or 5 speed) and paralleltwins. The latter also have the neutralswitchlug. The moving parts are also the same BUT there is a difference in some diameters of the shaft of the gearpedal. And off course the part that controls the fixation of the gears : 4 or...

Re: Neutral switch paradox

If the 750 didn't have the hardware to fit a neutral switch, all parts of a 860 can be swapped and pronto : a 750 with neutral light that works.
Shouldn't be too difficult to come by ?

Re: Lower bevel gear spindle shimming - Darmah

Due to the helicoidal teeth, the connecting gears are pushed outward (and upward), hence only shims #24 on the outside. Since the gear to the crank is a straight-toothed (?) one, there is no need for additional shimming. Don't want to make the shimming harder than it already is :shock: :shock: ciao ...

Re: Helloooo - another UK Darmah joining in

Usually the beer gets opened when all shims fall on the ground and the drive to continue fades :( :(
Just one, otherwise You may develope a drinking problem on top of the Ducati problem :tisk:
Enjoy the rebuild, hope to give You some relevant info if needed.

Re: Vee Two Hailwood Replica

The engines that were used in the endurance-racers weren't entirely build by Ducati but by NCR. They got unofficial help from factory-employees and engineers, but because they were a governement-steered factory, they weren't allowed to spend money on such capitalist things as racing. Hence NCR-Ducat...

Re: Vee Two Hailwood Replica

Did VeeTwo recreate the engine, or are those of Ioannoni ? He has been building them for years.
Seeing the tacho going more than once over the 10K, I suspect there is a plainbearing crank in it.
