Clutch thrust rod

Post by mikeydpippin »

1954 G9 Burman gearbox, fitted the 11 plates starting with the steel (just managed to push the springs enough to get the spring nuts on) after fitting the 5/16 ball bearing and the 10 3/16 thrust rod which was in 2 pieces) the adjuster goes to its max with the adjuster nut off before touching the thrust rod
I found an old thrust rod and replaced the smaller section of thrust rod with another length 1/4 longer.
Waiting for parts so can't try it, but is this right? Have I missed something?.
Clutch lever in gearbox working as it should...

How good is the lifter mechanism at the kickstart end? If the plunger has worn away to form a dimple (which most of them have) then you lose approx 1/4" off adjustment
