Hello,

In the process of rebuilding my R12 gearbox and I have a couple of questions:

Any key issues to look out for i.e. kick starter set up
Is the notch in the rear input shaft bearing carrier there for a purpose? I bought a new one but it doesn't have the 'segment' out of the rim to accommodate the piece of metal that is screwed into the case?

Regards

John

I redid my R12 gearbox ages

I redid my R12 gearbox ages ago, and I (vaguely) recall that the notch is there to provide clearance for the kickstarter ratchet pawl. I wish I could give you more specifics.

Yes

Thanks Darryl,

You're correct. I located the kickstart in position and without the section removed the kick starter ratchet pawl won't seat. I've sent photos to the manufacturer. See the alternative from Hugget.

Anyone have an example?

Anyone have a picture of one with the section removed? If I have to modify the one I have I'd like a pattern to follow?

Regards

John

Update

The process to fit this is to remove the section from the bearing carrier for the kickstart once the carrier has been pressed into place.
