My 1, 2 and 3 pistons have been oil pumpers and No 4 was a little tight in the hole (wall was dark) so I pulled the engine apart for new pistons. Also the center main was a little loose so will get it back where it needs to be.
While it's apart I am adding o-rings to the brake and reverse shaft and installing a new over sized low shaft.
So my questions are;
For the clutch shaft is there an off the shelf cup to hold the o-ring in place or or do you just use a washer and felt seal (spring to hold it all in place)
Starter; The seal kit in the Langs catalog shows what looks like the rear flange is cut off and the seal is installed between the cut off flange and the bushing in the housing. I am going to modify a regular bushing. Does the cut off flange just float acting like a thrust washer? The bushing in the catalog looks to have a recess for the seal to mate into, is that needed? I am guessing I just need to shorten the bushing by the thickness of the seal, correct?
Oh to add...I am going through T withdrawl!
Mark, that's why you need another T!! One to drive while one's down for repairs.
If I really need my T fix, I have a friend that I can barrow one from. You don't have to own more then one, friends are a good thing!
Went over and use a friends lathe. Cut the flange off leaving a lip to put into the housing. Guess I will go out and take the starter apart to take with me to the shop so I can install and ream the bushings.
