So I open a new package and remove a new quadrant and bearing and slap it in. The end of the "wheel" is too high and binds on the teeth of the ratchet pinion. Grind that down and the first "square" tooth hits of the point of the pinion teeth and binds.
Grind that down and the first full tooth is profiled wrong. hits on the point of the pinion teeth and binds. Slightly modified and now the teeth all mesh.
Then I put the cover on. Soon as the screws are snugged the shaft binds. (see a pattern here?}
The shoulder on the kick start shaft is too long and binds on the flange of the bushing. Removed and replaced the bushing 4 times before I got the flange thinned down enough to not bind.
Then I put on the nice shiny new kick start arm and insert the new metric cotter with an 8 mm wrentch to the tighten the nut and............ the arm binds on the case.
Not sure if the keyway is cut too far inboard (most likey) or the bottom of the arm is too thick. make that WAS too thick. Careful use of a grinder fixed that one.
Insert primal scream here.

Richard, You are the recipient of an inferior probably imported from India part,I have a couple of these on the shelf just to remind myself to never purchase them again. At first they look like a bargain but after going through what you just described they are no bargain. There are good correctly made B44 quadrants available and we stock them so if you cannot locate one please feel free to contact us and we will supply one for you Ed
Richard, If you are doing the work for someone else and they give you inferior parts it makes your work look bad so I would refuse to use them. How much time did you waste so far trying to make this part work and in the end it will not? Are you saving yourself or your customer money?
