    Popping a somewhat different hood

    funny this comes up as I just recently recommissioned my Technics SL-1300 turntable. Oddly coincidental too that, a friend called while emptying a storage locker and asked if I wanted the two boxes of vinyl albums in there. So the last two weekends have been dedicated to exploring someones collection with some satisfying results ;-)

    Many years ago when I was a biker the boys would informally organize a donation run. First few times we were denied simply on our appearance. After the insult passed we embraced it as a game and fought back against their preconceptions and were able to donate usually. I look back now at the foolishness of riding after donating but still smile at that whole scene

    Cracked main shaft

    We have repaired that in the past. First time we used a hardened bearing sleeve to mpress over the turned down tip and it worked very well. If your's is actually cracked it may not be viable Next time we bored the shaft and pressed in a dowl pin which also lasted fine. I think I have a drawing some where of the first solution if you have a machinist you trust Finally, I have a drawer full of mainshafts for Spitty's (I recall) if it's worth the shipping from the US. a hundred Dollars I'd estimate. I have tons of Spit gearbox parts...sadly ;-)

    Odd drawings

    I have no idea John, They are dwg's in this thread? Converting them to PDF's has been very iffy so perhaps the version is too old?

    Gearbox breather

    Didn't they relocate the breather hole to the squarish deoression in the shifter rail body?

    Odd drawings

    I never did master AutoCad and lost the opportunity shortly after these were done.

    Musing on road speed

    I've read that the US Department of Transportation requires speedos to read 10% high. I always assumed it was the safety nazis trying to slow us down but John's point makes as much sense if not more. Damn I hate giving up a conspiracy theory! LOL

    Staggering fabrication as usual! Thanx for the link John...

    So whats a windage tray worth?

    Kas relates a tale where he put a plastic window into the side of a GT6 block. Says after idle the interior was completely masked by whipped oil. In another thread I related issues with cavitation damaging oil pumps early on when RPM started climbing to racing levels. I fully believe in the dangers of aerated oil and absolutely believe in windage trays coupled with effective crank scrapers. Steve
