Re: Push Rod Tube Install

I don't know that I've seen a measurement for the tubes. Usually, the tubes are driven into final position when the cylinder is bolted to the engine case. A special drift is used and the goal is to get some squish of the seal...too much and the seal will split over time.

Re: R75/6 carbs vs /7

Just to be sure, the lube should only go on the transmission splines. That way when the trans is pushed into place, the excess gets pushed to the rear. If lube is put on the clutch splines, excess could be pushed forward and onto the clutch surfaces.

Re: /6 swing arm rubber boot leak

OK, but the design is pretty simple and should work fine. There is a bit of lip and the clamp can't rest on the lip.

Re: Cleaning the engine, transmission and final drive

It's going to take elbow grease. Plus try WD-40...I seem to recall that it was good for cleaning of surfaces.

Re: /6 swing arm rubber boot leak

The clamp goes around a round boot and a round portion of the driveshaft...nothing square about it. Clean things up and really see where the leak is coming from. But there's a small landing area where the clamp must be on the front and rear areas...be sure that the boot is fully seated.

Re: R75/6 carbs vs /7

I suppose that the jumpy nature could be due to the non-smooth surfaces of the clutch. It could also be that the lubrication of the transmission input splines was not thorough enough.

Re: 1956 R26 - My New Baby Has Some Issues

Brett - I don't know much about R26s and am not that versed on all of the various charging/ignition systems. At some point, I thought the singles did convert to a standard coil installed under the tank. My R25/2 has an older fashioned coil as part of the stuff under the cover. What voltage doe this ...

Re: /7 Clutch upgrade on a /6 bike

You would need to replace the transmission in order to get the post 1980 clutch. I highly doubt it's worth the expense.
