Hi all,

Can I make '64 flywheels work with pre '54 left side case?

If I can, what is involved?

Thanks

Cotton,

SO the older shaft will work with the newer flywheels? I thought the angles at the flywheel were different between the two shafts?

I am at sea right now and don't have access to my manuals, but would like to order what is needed to make this work so I can get at it when I get home.

The answer is no! You cannot put an early left shaft in '55 and later flywheels. The hole in the left flywheel is physically larger and impossible to bolt together. The machined surface is also wrong for end play washers, etc.

Doh!

I don't know why I was thinking pinions instead of sprockets so early in the morning.
With a one-year-only taper'd '55 on the bench, I have no excuse.

I might as well go back to Peoria.
