Default triumph 650 selector rod help

Here we go again, allways second guessing myself.I am 99.9% sure I installed the transmission selector gear shaft with the flat end going into the case like the book and Wes's video says to do but......what happens if it was put in the other end instead of flat end going into the case I put in the round end?Not really sure what the flat end does.Thanks

I think it can only go in one way.

Doesn't really matter. Normally the end with the flat goes in first as the flat lets any air/oil trapped in the hole escape.

Some of the shafts have reduced diameter on one end like the one shown in the drawing above..They need to be installed as shown so it fits properly . I think that maybe in the early 70's the step on the end of the shaft was eliminated ?

Yes it is the shaft that is in buddys right hand but my 1970 shaft does not tapper down in size just the one end has a small flat spot on it and is to go into the case 1st,like I said I am 99.9% sure I did it right but was wondering can it go in wrong or does it matter.Also my bearing behind the front sprocket is a sealed bearing unlike the open bearing that was in there,does that even matter?Thanks

Sealed on the outboard side is OK, sealed on the inboard side is not.

Sorry Bob did not pay attention your reply as I was busy at work but now at home reading all my reply's i kind of figured the flat end was not overly important but I am still sure I installed it right ,seems like the older I get the more I second guess myself only to tear things apart to find it was ok the 1st time,oh well.And as to the bearing behind the sprocket when I ordered it the thing came as a sealed bearing,now the cases were sealed up by a very well known Triumph guy where I live and I gave him all the bearings to install for me and am not sure if he removed the seals on either end?And he is a little to weird to ask how he installed the bearing so I would only figure he did what he thought was right.Thanks

I can see by peeling back the seal that goes behind the front sprocket that he left the seal on the bearing but I can not tell if the other side of the bearing still has it's seal on or if he removed it.I guess I will have to ask him,i was just wondering what would be "bad" about using a bearing that was sealed on both ends?just asking.Thanks

This was discussed not too long ago on Britbike, I asked because I had been supplied with a sealed bearing. The bearing came from one of the big Brit parts places, so I asked. And was surprised that opinion was divided amongst some pretty experienced guys about using a sealed bearing there. Not a guaranteed mistake or failure if the inside seal was left in.

That is also what I am finding and again I am not sure if the the guy who put my case halfs together left the inner seal on the bearing but out of curiosity I will have to ask him
