A65TB 1968 Crank end float+primary drive
03/27/2020 7:07 PM
The BSA bible doesnt say what end float to aim for, has anyone got data?
And I want to check that primary drive sprockets are in line, will a ruler on the sides of sprockets be precise enough?

With the drive side of the crank fully assembled and the alternator nut torqued - .0015” - .003”
That is how I do it. There are shims to get the crank sprocket in-line with the clutch. You want the primary chain alignment correct so you don’t side load the crank.
