'65 T120 Clutch Hub Locking Up
Novice replacing the primary chain and clutch plates on my 1965 T120. Everything I read says that I would need a puller to remove the drums but everything came off easily without a puller. On re-assembly, the inner drum locks up with the outer drum when I tighten the nut. Not torquing it, just tightening a bit. I took everything apart and re-assembled. Looks like everything is assembled correctly. Thrust washer is in behind the the outer drum, copper side out. All 20 rollers correctly positioned. Shaft washer in place. I'm wondering now if the nut was not torqued but just snugged up with locktite when I took it apart. Are the drive center and spider tapered to keep the inner drum from travelling too far back? What is supposed to keep the drums from binding together? Any help appreciated
