This has been a blast for me to follow along, I still have some work to do on my tranny and a bunch to get the bike finished.
PA, thanks, I know writing this post must have been very time consuming. I hope you do this on another section of the 45.
I have both Palmer books, the parts manual, fort Knox manual, and the Technical manual, but this was interactive and well put together.
Maybe you and the other experts on this site should write a book. I spent alot on the books and found that I had to read them all to get the job done.
I tried one size up for the photos Brendan but thay came out to large for the forum, to view. I'm hoping to do the engine next but I'm not quite ready to tackle it at this time. Need a few more parts first. I'm really glad you mentioned your approval of the post. I...like you...and many others... possess as much information and literature as we can. It takes it all to do the task.
That is exactly why I decided to go with the build post. Each time, in the past, I rebuilt a 45 trans, I would forget much I had learned. Doing a step by step build, using all the literature out there available, I decided documenting it, would ease the task somewhat, the next time around.
At least for me it will.
If anyone wants to write a book on building a 45 trans, using any or all of the material compiled during this build, PERMISSION GRANTED !! I'm no book writer. Hopefully, this topic will aid many more home builders in the future. I must advise though.....Those individuals, such as my friend, Mr. Bruce Palmer, and the literature that they have provided, along with the factory materials, are a necessity, when building a 45 trans, even if one follows the instruction in this topic. Also....it definately helps to have seasoned folks like 100inchscoot, watching over ones self, when doing a correct build. I boo booed a few times during this build.
