Need some information on the appropriate type of material and clearances for the bushing on the sleeve gear of a Manx gearbox.
After coming off the track at a track day, I noticed that the bike was dragging while coasting. Investigation revealed that the sleeve gear bush had failed; it looked like it had run dry of lubrication.
I have a machinist who will press a new bushing in and ream it, but he asked about the type of material (phosphor bronze etc.) that the bushing should be made from and the appropriate clearance to ream it.
Can anyone help?
