    Consider buying 2 that are suitable and replace both at the same time. That way all the current use and gearing will match just fine

    I've always figured that the setscrew is used to hold things in place when they're setting up the timing of the lever before drilling for the taper pin.

    The price really depends on condition. I will say that it looks to have had a decent life - compound isn't whacked, indicator holder and stop rod still on there, drive looks original. You might...

    Mine has the ball level with the boss on the other end when clamped. This is adjustable within reason by changing the nuts under the clamping plate (IIRC)

    Tight on one end suggests a thread problem and not a nut problem - if you lap the nut is going to get looser on the other end. Do you have a sacrificial nut that you could use to lap with? That...

    I would think that's a bad idea. My suspicion is that the line to the half nut, being kinda low in the little top sump, fills and allows more oil out to the clutches. If it didn't fill then little...

    The wonky scraping had me thinking "crappy rebuild" and the shim on top of the cross slide nut kind of confirms it. Someone's been in there before and likely pretty recently. It might need a little...

    The part I've often see clogged up is the hole into the half-nut threads itself. It's only open to the oil passage in the apron when you close the nuts. It's easiest to see if you pull the...
