11/11/17- The Jackshaft Pt.2
I found the coupling! It was lodged above the drive belt. The belt was spinning in the direction of the engine so it was rolling around in there and not falling out. I buttoned it all up and took it out around the block. The rattling is gone from the crank and the shifting is way better. Still a bit hard to get it into 1st from neutral but only really when standing still. It's still backfiring a bit and I want to get to the bottom of that. I will be working on the air and fuel next.
- I will install a Supertrapp pipe. Got one off Ebay for $375.
- Install Big Sucker Stage 1 intake about $150.
- Replace and refit all rubber surrounding carb, intake and manifold.
