Sprag clutch washer

Post by IADuckrider » Wed Aug 15, 2018 9:18 am

Hello everybody,
I'm restoring my '78 Darmah and I've run into a problem. A previous owner removed the electric start system, probably because of sprag bearing issues. I'm restoring it back to original and have been collecting all the necessary bits, or so I thought. Once I got into the engine I discovered that the washer 0799.50.188 that goes into the clutch primary gear assembly is missing. Steve doesn't have them and none of my other usual used parts sources have it either. I was hoping someone might have one that they could part with or suggest a potential source.

Thanks,

Bob

Hi Bob,

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 ...

Hi Craig,

Yes, I thought that would be my last resort. The only question would be the washer hardness but there's the washer behind the starter gear where I could get a reading.

Thanks for the note!
