He wrote me back and said the engine has never been opened up, This indicates chrome bores. I know that EVERY airhead I have ever bought needed at least $2K done to it and assume most old bikes are the same. So with almost $1K in new cylinders, pistons, rings, head work, to get rid of the chrome bores, and the extra I expect to spend on top of that to get the bike in a condition I am pleased with, I think I will pass on this one.

I really do want an Eldo and know that the values are on the rise. But I really dont' need to invest $8K in 41 year old bike right now.

I'm replacing the clutch input hub and discs and intermediate plate....
Behind the hub are two Orings. One slightly larger than the other.
I'm reading this as:
The smaller fits the shaft just behind the splines.
The larger sits on the splines behind the hub?
I'm fuzzy on this...

The thick o-ring fits into the groove, the thin o-ring fits onto the shaft back against the bearing.

UNI's

I fit up the UNI filters. The stock filter will not be replaced at this juncture.
How do I oil those filters?

So I'm setting the new clutch hub...

Star washer, check...

4 Pin locknut, check...

Set the nut tightly and look for the tab to line up with one of the pin slots, check...

How the hell am I supposed to bend that little tab up???

Are you bleeding?! When I put mine back together, I ran into this problem. I thought it was kind of hilarious, and thought the engineers must have enjoyed knowing that they made something so simple, so difficult. I ended up tweaking the tabs up just a little bit before putting the washer in place. It was little enough that it didn't cause it to foul on the nut as I spun it on, but enough that I could get a hook under it when it was all together.

Insert flat head screwdriver into the gap between tab and id of outer gear aligned with the notch. Twist fairly hard, and the tab should be the first to give.

Lots and lots of auto front end / transaxle parts use that setup and that's the best thing I've ever come up with. :/

You're not alone in the delayed springtime phenomenon. I had haoped to get out on a MC today, but it topped out at 40 here today, sunny but very windy. That engine there is mighty pretty, sir.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Beware the Intermediate Plate!

Here's the old one. Teeth are worn and this disc is shaped much like a potato chip...



So we ordered a new one. I added the six slot heat treatment feature. New discs and 4MM hub and splines, springs... life is good...

Until I actually fit the plate into the flywheel...WTF?????

This thing don't fit at ALL!!!???



The new plate was stamped out like a Yugo...a ChiangShen. Horrid fit and finish.

I had to take a file to every one of the 72 teeth to get rid of the frass on both sides of every tooth and now it slides nicely in the clutch assembly. But what a POS!!!


It's seems to fit together...


Don't get me wrong. All of the replacement parts, ( that amounts to a whole bunch of them ) have been of excellent quality fit and finish. I've been frustrated with all the oneofakind seals, orings, etc... It ain't like a German bike.
But this clutch plate was crap.. I was surprised.
