    today i got the rest of my tranny apart and lucky me i found the kicker gears lost tooth stuck in the bottom of the tranny woo who 82 years of smudge covered the crack good.should be an easy fix.

    dave i think tour tranny should look like this photo of my 25

    clutch arms are different you should have that ear on top
    next photo is a 27 and up case

    Rat's a good guy and he does solid work on the old bikes.

    Did you see the 1929 JDH he was selling at Rhinebeck? Cool little custom hot rod Harley!

    A few years ago I found a vendor at a meet selling modern bearing units that replace the bearings and races used in the JD's and VL's. I bought a set for my 1927 but don't remember off the top of my head who was selling them.
