No problems with your wording, just with my mind.  ;D

Not really. Work has been relentless this year so far, so I've hardly even visited the forum. Bikes are waiting for love I have little time to give.  :'(

Sorry to hear that, if the 240 needs a new home I might be interested......

Finally got a bit of time to look at the Husky yesterday, so pulled the clutch cover off to see what’s what. This is the first Husky I’ve ever worked on, so noticed a few differences from Japanese bikes, most notably the heavy duty one piece clutch basket. Also found out how fiddly it is to get the cover back on, especially trying to line up the kickstart and gearshift mechanism, plus the waterpump impellor drive, while also getting the dowels aligned. Much profanity!

Everything looks good though, just needs a clean out and new seals to be sure.

Cheers
Jamie

Always fun when you think you have the dowel lined up for the selector shaft spring, with the cover on and it pops off and your gear lever doesn't return. You're right about the clutch basket, seriously heavy duty.
How's your clutch cover. Does yours have the Magnesium or Aluminium cover?

I was expecting the worst, but it looks like the previous owner sourced an aluminium cover for it, so no corrosion issues.

I was lucky enough to pick up a bare crankcase set for the husky with an excellent right case half for the sprocket cover. The left side is also really good except for one thing - a crack between the two transmission shaft bearing mounts (pic attached). It starts where the missing bearing is, so I’m wondering if someone has given the case a whack when removing that bearing.

Is this area weldable/repairable? Is it alloy?

Cheers

Sorry for the late reply Jamie, that case is magnesium so before giving it to a welder, speak to Dennis (ozktm555) as he has some experience with people who say they can do a job but..........
