Default Re: Running T120 with open chain primary

....I agree...see about fixing the leak. It would be a whole lot less work and fabrication....
BTW. Im running a belt drive on my shovel....and it has a "bearing" tensioner...Also remember, there are tons of bikes, motors, rotating parts that spin at a high rate....ever looked at the cam belts on a Ducatti?? or other high reving motors... those bearings have to be made tough and would most likely last better than a skate wheel bearing......I was just thinking outside the box....

Fix the leak.....It can a pain with small cracks and stripped cover screw holes. But if cleaned spotlessly , a good modern sealer will work pretty well.You may have to let it cure overnight. Or is the whole primary flange on the engine fucked up beyond repair?
I've tried, and truly cannot figure out why it's still leaking or where from. The flange on the engine looks fine. It acts like a stripped cover screw hole, but it's not. The cover screw goes in normal, but it leaks from around the bottom rear primary screw, near the drain plug

If the drain plug has been over tightened it will crack the cover and it is hard to see , Ask me how I know

The leak seems to be coming from the case or the seal between case and cover or through a screw hole. The cover isn't leaking at all
