Re: Heinrich tank

More than a few years ago, I tried to fit an original Heinrich and it wouldn't fit
and I don't recall where the interference was at. I am using one dual lead coil

Thanks

Heinrich tank

I replaced the bearings that I could with sealed bearings and machined the bearing holders to accept modern seals on the ones I couldn't get sealed, on the transmission of my R11.

Dual clutch plates

Daryl, I removed the carb to look at the clutch material thickness on my R42 to make sure I wasn't having a senior moment. It is impossible to measure accurately, but it appears to be around 3/16" thick. I started out with 1/4" material and that was to thick for the clutch to go together. I mounted ...

ohh, I was hoping my R42 would sound about like my R60/2. Is it all engine noise or is the exhaust loud also?
