Will install new gearbox bearings and new clutch roller bearing to current gearbox. By doing this I feel I've covered all bases. It's a bike I intend to keep and ride for some years so it's fair enough. Will continue saga in due course. Theres other stuff I can be doing in the meantime. I typically like to do things/repairs in sequence as opposed to concurrently. Never know where the fault is if you've done loads of work -particularly electrical. Someone offering a brand spanking crank NOS on eBay £1295!
I'd be having a very close look at the clutch cush drive too.....nows the time while the cases are apart - if the springs rattle ...it's 40+ years old ,tired / buggered & apparently Buzzard has the means to now to get in & out & fit the new correctly rated progressively springs in the correct order . Plus as Rob zed1015+ stated ensure your Starter sprag gear float is set up correctly = a slight drag on it when revolved ( 3 different rubber damper sizes are available & you can adjust that too if needed..... with the use of a Sheet of Glass & some 400 grit paper ) Happy hunting, Cheers Johny B.
