  • D bore lower kit

    What is the proper install procedure for a lower accelerator pulley/shaft/etc... the d-bore kit. Our machines all had the old (non bolt style) shafts, when we switch to D-bore the bearings wander in and out of the fork (slide side to side) is it something wrong with how its installed? or is it a bad/worn/bent "fork"

    Put the bearing in from the inside of the yolk........thenthe retaining ring will not allow them to move out.......the steel spacers will not allow them to move in.

      Re: D bore lower kit

      Lately I've had probs with the D bore bearings
      making loud "clicking" noise. even ordered bearings from another company, same thing. I decided to go old school and install non bolt on shaft, bearings with race built in and locking collars. This style has been around for a long long time and it works great.

        <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Unless the pulley hub is worn or the yoke is spread a little wide. Then the bearings will move around a little.

        In this case.... you can use the washer that goes under the distributor clutch nut as a shim. Place them between the stepped spacer and the pulley hub.

          Legend, thats what I needed... I'm pretty sure the yoke is spread a little wide... I had evertything set up 4 times, just as it should be... but it (the bearing) seems to wander.... When I took this one apart it was a mess, they had thrown washers in there instead of the stepped spacer, they had somethings way OVER tight, and others too loose.... Just wish we had another yoke around so I could tell for sure... Thanks guys - oh, and.... I dont know what style is older... but some of our pulley hubs are cast with the rest of the pulley, and others have a bushing that was press fit into them (with 2 holes drilled in them for the set screws/bolts/whatever you want to call them... Clearly some of these are REALLY old. Anyone else seen these hubs? We had one go because the bushing wore down too far... pulley would wobble even with everything tight

            So it goes.

              <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Never seen a pulley with a center bushing. Could be they had worn original shaft holes and were reworked somehow.

              If the center hole isn't worn too bad you can get away with it by adjusting the set screws to eliminated the wobble. But this is only advisable for the top yoke assembly. I never did it on the lower one unless I had no other choice at the time.

                nope, this is no mod... its an original part because all of our originals are this way... thankfully only one has been junk so far... heh
