Another primary strip down today. Chain and clutch basket/starter ring gear touching the inner primary since the last build.
Chain near the lower front as in the photos attached. What is it with that I ask ?
Put in the updated Genuine chain tensioner to see if that makes any difference
Part # 39929-06B Noticeably "thicker" in the base than the OEM original.
Could have put in the Screamin Eagle manual but decided not to. ( Hopefully correctly !)
Still spring pack and /or roller bearing noise from the compensator as suggested before now.
Can't locate a GMR performance composite washer sadly
Yes the PEEK washer to replace the roller thrust 3 part bearing that comes in the "upgraded/latest" SE compensator kits.
POLYETHER ETHER KETONE is the base material.
Use the PEEK washer that is OEM on the M8 Compensator , part # 40100064 this has been suggested to me already from the US forums.
Has radial grooves to allow oil ingress , probably a good idea.
(part # gleaned from the Ronnie's HD online microfiche, a treasure trove of info. Forum still will not let my desktop "cut and paste" but easy to search for )
So I will be ordering part # 40100064 from Frasers on Monday. That will require ANOTHER stripdown ,crank thread reaming Khant of a job FFsake...
Chit I'm a funging nexpert at this now !
I will check on the progress of this updated tensioner while in there of course. At $127.25 perhaps a primary chain as well
