STEP 13 LO­CATE THE BENDIX

Fit Bendix to the in­ner case, but don’t tighten the bolts yet. The ratchet teeth are held out of en­gage­ment by a 10 x 5mm neodymium mag­net with a 1kg pull.

STEP 14 SPROCKETS & CHAINS

Fit cush drive and sprockets to crank, and starter chain from Bendix to crank sprocket. Ad­just ten­sion. Check clutch and en­gine sprockets are in line.

STEP 15 MARK MOUNT­ING PLATE

Re­move cush drive, en­gine sprockets, clutch and both chains. Scribe around the Bendix mount­ing plate so you know where to fit it for cor­rect chain ten­sion.

STEP 16 FIT THE BENDIX

Re­move in­ner case and take off Bendix mech­a­nism. Coat back of mount­ing plate with oil-proof gas­ket sealant, re­fit Bendix to scribe mark, and tighten Allen bolts.

STEP 17 CHECK THE THREADS

Be­fore lock-wiring bolts se­cur­ing in­ner chain­case, check the three threads in crank­case – longer bolts may be needed. Use grease to hold felt seal in place.

STEP 18 CUT THE PLATE

Pear­son slid­ing plate O-ring clutch seal has slot at one end, a hole the other. Cut al­loy plate and make a sec­ond slot to take the 2mm thicker in­ner pri­mary chain­case.

STEP 19 FIT THE PLATE

Fit mod­i­fied slid­ing plate, us­ing gas­ket goo un­der bolt heads. Weld up the back of a ring span­ner; use it to make hold­ing the nuts be­hind the pri­mary case eas­ier.

STEP 20 IT’S ALL GO­ING ON...

Fit en­gine sprockets, cush drive, clutch and pri­mary drive chain. The cush drive bear­ing nut can be tight­ened with ham­mer and drift, but it’s more pro­fes­sional...

STEP 21 MAKE A SPE­CIAL TOOL

... and less bru­tal to use a home-made tool made by grind­ing the face of an old socket to leave four ears to en­gage with the slots in the cush-drive bear­ing nut.

STEP 22 CHAIN GANG

Fit chain be­tween en­gine sprocket and Bendix. Fit chain from starter mo­tor to sprocket at other end of Bendix; ad­just ten­sion by mov­ing the starter plate.

STEP 23 KEEP IT COV­ERED

Fit ex­ter­nal starter mo­tor chain cover. Both starter chains main­tain the cor­rect ten­sion for high mileages, but check when you ad­just pri­mary drive chain.

STEP 24 LET IT RIP

Be­fore fit­ting the outer cover, hit the but­ton to check it works. Bendix bear­ings need plenty of oil, so fit outer chain­case and add 400ml of 20/30. Job done!
