I am gathering parts for a Duo Glide project (Custom not resto) and have some questions about the primary set-up. I just picked up a 1 1/8 belt drive. I am not sure if I want to run a outer tin or not. If I go with the open belt do I need an inner primary?

The motor is a 1962 and I will stick with the 74 inch frywheels. Kick start only. The frame is the 58-64 drop seat.

I also need a clutch assembly. Would you guys recomend finding an OG stock unit and freshing it up or an aftermarket deal? If aftermarket, what brands?

Thanks,

Jakemon

i've never done what you are describing with the primary, but it sounds like it would be fine. why bother with an inner primary if there is no outer one? you MAY want to make some sort of brace to connect the primary side of the case to the tranny.....some added strength.

If you have the stock early 60's trans and plate you should be ok the tranny
should have castings that set into recesses in the trannyplate, this is the best way to go even if you have a connecting plate.I used to special order this type
of tranny for every belt drive I ever built,when harley went to the flat mounting
on the electric start, Lou at STD used to set me up with an electric start
trans.with an early mounting before he passed away,they might still make
them for special order,one more idea I would recomend is the double adjuster
that mounts to the frame mount for the tranny plate,and the two front studs
coming out of the tranny,it is a much better setup then the stock unit,that
uses just one stud to adjust with.
