S. O. B. !

Screw that bastard Murphy and his stupid Laws! Boy did I make a boo-boo. Put the tranny back in, mounted the inner primary, got the clutch and belt drive in, then it hit me. Crap! Did I really just do that? Yep, I did. Well shit happens. Nothing that can’t be fixed pretty easily. Just a pain in the butt.

There’s a rookie mistake in the picture. The first one who spots it gets to call me a dumb ass. The second one that sees it can come fix it for me.
Answer: 8-3-09
I forgot to put the shifter shaft in. Goes in from the inside of the inner primary, “before” you mount the damn thing!

that belt inside the primary dont look right to me, but i know nothing of engines, clutches, and trans, so im just guessing. i will say, on a open primary the belt is outside of those big pullys (on right of pic) and not inside of pullys. right?

i dont know. im good with looking like a dumbass so go ahead...tell me i got nothin but a boobie prize...lol.

im curious of the right answer.

I don't see a belt tensioner.

I just put 'Annabelle 95% together and realized the shifter pawl wasn't lined up right;;;;SOB!!

mq01: That big gear thingy is for the lectric starter. U U Prize

Big D: Ain’t got no tensioner on this thing. Best get the right size belt. But the word “shifter”, damn close!

Lady R: It’s not necked. It’s showing it’s inner beauty.

Ann: And I’ll wear dat like a badge of honor ;)

Dave: You saw what over the phone?

B.B.: Such a sweet girl!

So...what is it???

Willy D said...

Ann: My internet was down for awhile. Look at the second picture. It was the shifter shaft.

Ann said...

Oh! OK! Yeah, a broken shifter shaft really sucks! That means you can ride it, huh? ;)
