Fixing a Jackshaft

30 posts in this topic

Got a friends chop torn down and ground the frame clean of a bunch of old brackets no longer needed. Moving the engine forward to allow room for a proper jack shaft system. Cut the old cobbled up axle plates out and put the frame in the jig. Ready to make a new set of axle plates and then move the engine make new mounts.

I have been upgrading my shop. I had a 30x40 concrete pad poured cost me 6000$ and expanded into the other area of the barn. Also bought several new to me tools. There is a Southbend 15x36 inch lathe, a Summit 19x80 lathe with DRO, Cincinnati 1-18 horizontal mill, Willis 3 foot arm radial arm drill, 12 inch  disc 48 inch belt Delta Rockwell combination sander, Weld Table, and several new pieces of tooling. I am saving and trying to use my money just to upgrade the shop staying away from builds of my own until the new shop is done.

I have been saving money and selling bikes and tools to afford the shop upgrade.

The cost of those tools would really piss you off what I paid for most of them. Dirt Cheap and you have to remember this has been over a 6 month or more period just have not posted here about it. The Arm drill and Summit Lathe was won from a employee sale at work.

Southbend=550$

Shaper= 400$

Broach Set=125$

Sander=260$

Oven=100$

Summit=302$

Rotary converter=1000$

Arm Drill=702$

Cincinnati=500$

Weld table=Free$

Tilt Table=260$

Thanks Friend!

Got the axle plates welded in. They are square with each other and the jig also distanced apart to reuse the axle shaft. Now can know the engine is inline with the axle plates after making engine new mounts.

Got the motor moved forward in the frame. The front motor mount is done with turned spacers and both cross bars are welded in. The engine is aligned center with the frame jig and axle plates using the center casting on the head for the front of engine and a straight edge along the engine sprocket and the jig edge with a square for the rear of engine. The engine was also checked to be level with the jig using the engine oil pan mating edge. Also the engine sprocket is in a straight line with the axle shaft. Now have a 10 inch space to build a proper jackshaft and battery box. Will have plenty of room to run a cool exhaust also.

Change of plans. We took a Kaw 750 Zephyr he had and made a donor bike out of it. The motor is now been welded in and the cross braces moved. Then pulled off the frame jig. We no longer need a jackshaft on the bike and have a larger more power full engine.

Hand made a rear fender that has 1/4 inch clearance for chain. Added 1/8 inch round bar around the outside edge for strength. Made a sissy bar. Got it all mounted.

That engine looks much better in the frame than the first one.  Better off without the jackshaft. Looking good

Thanks!

We did a quick seat just for mock up so, forward controls could be built out of imitation alligator vinyl. Then I built a set of forward controls for the bike.

Did some art work on the cases today. If he approves the designs I get to engrave them. If not wipe the cases clean.

We have plans to grind off the kaw and put the name of the bike there. If he ever thinks of it?

Engravings have been approved. Turned to match design some Heat Sink oil coolers to remove the stock oil cooler. Mounted them on the bike.
