1970 Interceptor 750 Nut behind alternator
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:52:40 PM »
OK... so I'm tearing into this motor a little more than planned. The clutch pack is completely worn out and so is the primary chain and adjuster. I also noticed the drive chain sprocket on the trans is loose. The binding nut is not tight. So... I'll have to pull the primary case to get access to the nut... and I want to look at the Woodfuff key and key-way too - to see how worn it is from being loose.

So... Is the large 2 1/6 nut on the crank (behind the alternator/magneto)  right or left hand threads? I does not say in my simple 55 page manual.

I would think right hand, so as to keep the nut tight against the direction of rotation.

Thanks... I was thinking along the same lines. It came off with an impact and 2 1/6th inch socket.
