  10. Re: Clutch shaft Pivoting Support Assembly Confusion

    Jeff .... That little spring slides in the slot and holds the round bearing.
  11. Re: Clutch shaft Pivoting Support Assembly Confusion

    Re: Liar Tachometer

    Francisco .... I still would check the tach with a electronic gauge; it is an option on my electric volt/ohm meter. If it is reading off, I would guess that it is a gauge problem that would require...

    Isabelo .... Nix the idea. If you unbolt the left axle tube, you will be removing the left cage bearing and the ring gear will be loose. This is part of setting up the lash of the rear end and best...
