Can anyone tell me if they make an oversize kickstart stop [Part No. varies...T45 for 1966, 57-0045 for 1980's if that helps]. Its the stepped pin that is a press fit in the inner case.
The bike I am working on kickstart stop almost fell out of the case, the hole is ovalled, and the kickstart stop has been centre punch knurled before. So I can't see Loctite etc working.
If I can't get an oversize one then my plan is to enlarge the hole to true it up then make a press fit steel bush. Then turn the original kickstart stop down to true it up and then press fit this into the hole in the steel bush.
But if 750 ones are bigger or something then I'll rethink the problem. I have a 750cc and a Trident but they are together, not tearing them down to see
Also, I took the patent plate off and two of the pins came out no problem, but one snapped off flush. I tried using a Dremel and grinding some of the case away, but unless I go severe, there is just not enough exposed pin to get a set of sidecutters onto the end.....never had it happen before, bloody frustrating.
