Comp nut
« on: September 14, 2021, 05:23:48 AM »
It’s been 17 years since I have needed one which is pretty good, but the socket for the comp nut is 1 1/2” and the threads are right handed…. Correct?

I have some oil leaks I want to address.

Yes- 1.5" x RH threads

It's the trans that has the backwards spinning nuts.

Thanks all.
I had one for years I had ground the lead-in off and I cannot locate it. I understand losing a 10mm but a 1.5”?

 You ain't heard 1/2 of it. My crusty memory tapped me on the shoulder today and whispered that when I went to solid sprocket in 2003 I used a conventional nut that is not 1.5"

 Guess I'll know soon enough.  :hyst:

 Next trick, pulling that Rivera Pro clutch I have not touched since installation in 2004.

If you need another 1 1/2" socket, that is the size used on big truck lug nuts.  NAPA auto parts or any truck dealership will probably have it in stock.

The key is getting a 1/2 drive so that you can use it without an adapter .

Taking apart the primary side, checking it all over and reassembling with new seals and gaskets. Got a drip or 2, nothing big.

Then I will move to the cam side and review my options. The last time i looked at Leineweber L5 cams they were out of stock so I bought an Andrews 7. It’s been a good cam but I still have the bug for an L5.  We’ll see.  :teeth:

I've been running one of Ray's seals for 5 or 6 years now in '79 flh. He does nice work.

Well when you do get a round tuitt, be sure to have plenty of those little O-rings on hand. They tend to break getting over that step where the splines on the mainshaft end...

They usually come with a couple extra o-rings. Just make sure there are no burrs on the shaft and you'll be fine.
