Why do parts take so long to show up from over seas?  Funny, it's like 20*F outside, a little snow on the ground and all I can think about is "When are my parts going to show up?!"   ;D

No matter, I have to go swap out the fuel pump on my Legacy after I get some coffee and pancakes in me.  ;)  Hopefully it won't be too big of a PITA, I'm going to be putting in a used fuel pump out of a newer H6 model.  So I will have a little more fuel pressure (hopefully it will help fill that gap of lack of power between 3/4 T and WOT) but I'm probably going to end up doing a little custom fab work.  If all goes to plan, I can do what I need my my garage.  But I'm not doing shit until it warms up a little.

When I was messing around with the bike yesterday I noticed that the bearing in the outer clutch/spring plate is seized.  Does anyone know if that bearing can be pressed out and if there is a sealed bearing that can be pressed in to replace it?  The release pin spins rather freely in there but I don't see the bearing moving at all and it takes some work to get it to move with my fingers.

The way I look at things like that is that if they put one in there, then it can be removed and replaced.
It may not be easy, but they got one in there when they made the thing.

Is this for the ratchet clutch?   ERC

Scissor clutch.  I brought it in to work and the bearing popped right out of the plate with a socket and hammer.  Took some measurements and the local bearing supplier has a new one in stock for $11.  Its on the way home so I'll stop and pick it up after work.

Great you found one Hitchcocks doesn't show it in there parts list. I even went to an original parts manual. None of them list it as a part you can buy. They just show a picture of it. With no #.  ERC

Not only did I find the right bearing in town, in stock, it is an EXACT match!!!!!  Best part is, it was on my way home and it only cost $12.01 out the door!  It took longer for me to measure the bearing and call in to put it on will call than it did to replace the bearing.

I called with the dimensions and described it to the guy and he responds "26 by 10 by 8 submerged bearing?  That's going to be a NAC6000.  I have 2 on the shelf."  That dude knows his bearings.

ERC - If you're in need and can't find one just let me know.   Or anyone else for that matter.    :)

Well, here I am, 10 days later and still no parts from Hitchcocks.  And God forbid they give you a tracking number to prove they actually shipped it when they said they did.  It better not take 2 1/2 weeks again.  I freaking HATE that I have to order parts from them, their deliveries are below sub par.

As annoying it is waiting for parts, it is coming from half way across the world and I've found the UK postage system can be amazing, or shit. I ordered two things from the same supplier, posted same time. A month apart from each other.

Actually, England is only about a 1/3 of the way around the world.    ;)

I don't know what the deal is.  EVERYtime I order from Hitchcocks it takes at least a 1 1/2 weeks for it to show up.  When I ordered my ignition from England, it showed up in 5 days.  When I ordered parts from India they showed up in 4 days.  My wife has ordered stuff from China and it showed up in a week.  It just pisses me off that Hitchcocks has a monopoly on Vintage Enfield parts and they don't really seem to give a shit when people actually get their parts.    :-\  I was really hoping I would have my bike back together in time for the flat track open practice this Saturday.  That's not going to happen now.    :(

You have to have them send it with tracking. Costs more but you get it in a couple of days. Other than that it can take what seems like forever.  ERC

You know ERC, the one time I DID pay extra for tracking it didn't seem like it showed up any sooner so I haven't wasted my money on it since.  I guess I'll give it another try with my next order.  Frustrating none the less.

Happy Birthday too!!!   :D

If you had spent the money for tracking you would be able to see that your parts have been in Colorado Springs all week.  >:(
