It’s sort of like Jeff Glover, or something else that’s left over from the early 80s. At least one of those guys did a stint in cars. If we’re going back that far to make up fake names, why not steal from Brad Lackey? That dude was Steve McQueen cool.
On topic – I think that one of the things that Chris has overlooked is the need to have the ends of the tube cut straight and not at an angle. A good machinist never questions this and forgets about a guy working on the backporch using a hacksaw to cut tube held between the knees that just ain’t ever gonna get a straight cut.
Good quality pipe nipples will work in a pinch for tube sections lathe cut to length. Brass helps to avoid dings on the crank surfaces. The recommendation to use a bolt with a big washer on the crank side and a nut with a big washer on the clutch side is very good also. Easy.
Larry, I don’t think the ends of the tube are that critical, as long as they aren’t 45’s!!!! The washer will bottom out on the case, if one gets there first, not a big deal, the rest of it will follow.
Broc, it’s easy to spell, it’s to the left of your pointless bantering…..
