Cool Re: Norton Commando 1971 & Up Project

Good to go for the project as I found a fairly complete 1971 basketcase minus engine and sheet metal.

Still need front and rear fenders and looking for steel Roadster gas tank.

Cool WTB: Norton Commando Engine 750 or 850

I have acquired a 1971 Commando basket case minus engine. I would like to buy a 750 or 850 engine (non-electric start) that is a complete and together engine. In running condition a major bonus.

Cool Re: 1970 Sportster Clutch M/S Nut Torque ?

No worries. I will have to scan that and post it as I chuckled that it said "at least" for a torque setting !

I do have the dry clutch and the reason I had it apart was to install a kicker.

Cool Re: 1970 Sportster Clutch M/S Nut Torque ?

I got it torqued to 150 ft-lbs. The factory service manual does give the 150 ft-lbs setting on page 143. It actually says at least 150 ft-lbs !

Cool Re: XLCH Kickstart Crank Gear Fit on Shaft ?

Yes, I did do the research. According to my parts book, 1963 parts in question are the same for the 1970 models.
