Hello all, Can anyone let me know please,the correct thickness of the Drive Side Engine Shaft Shim ... part # 66-661 in the Goldie parts book . The shim that came out of the Bike is pretty damaged (hammered (?) into a concave shape) and is roughly .020" thick.. Thanks ..... Charlie. 1956 DB34 ..
Thanks very much Dave,just the info I was after.. I was lucky enough to find a new shim amongst my bits and pieces... measures .018" ... should be OK.. I was thinking .... at some stage in the Bikes' life,the Engine sprocket had come loose.I wonder if that was the cause of the shim being damaged so .. Anyways ... we have a new shim,new bearings and a new crankshaft assembly to go in ... that should keep the Goldie contented for a while. All the best mate ..
