How to repair cluch disc suzuki mini truck


The clutch is a friction disk up against the flywheel and pressed against it by the clutch pressure place. So you have to remove the transmission in order to gain access.
For that you:
disconnect battery
drop drive shaft
remove speedometer cable or wire, shift and clutch linkage
support engine and transmission separately.
remove rear support
remove engine to transmission bolts, cover plate, and starter
slide transmission back until input shaft clears clutch pressure plate ring
lower transmission.
remove pressure plate evenly and slowly

Then you inspect for wear on the pilot bushing the input shaft rests on, the friction disc is assumed to be too thin, the pressure plate should not show heat damage or scratching, and the throw out bearing should not be noisy.

Installation is reverse except you use a fake plastic input shaft in order to firmly locate the friction disk in the right place, when bolting pressure plate on. Remember to tighten evenly, diagonally, and not to break off any bolts by over tightening. Remove fake plastic input shaft before continuing then.

How to install kickstart case cover and gear assembly on 69 flh 4 speed ratchet top transmision


If all you want to do is install a the kick start case cover, drain the transmision fluid and just take the old one off along with the kicker lever intact. You'll need to look inside and see the relationship of the kicker gear stop and the kick starter lever. Then, once you see how it's supposed to look, ie. the kicker straight up and the kicker gear stop at the X o'clock positon, start taking the stuff apart. Transfer all the old parts to the new kicker cover. Align the kicker gear properly with the kicker lever. When you install the old shaft into the new cover, make sure you put a new seal in between the two bushings so it doesn't leak. Put the new cover with the rest of the kicker parts in it back on the transmission and refill the transmission with lube. 20-24 ounces.

If the clutch gear on the end of the mainshaft needs to be replaced, it's advisable to have the special puller to get it off with. If you don't have the puller, you can put some pressure on the clutch gear like you're trying to pry it off and rap on it with a hammer. Hit the side of the gear not the end of the shaft. Don't hit it hard enough to break anything, just a good tap should pop it off. If not, you'll have to find someone with a puller or buy one.

good Luck

Resetting the Code/Combination From a Lost Code
Simplex LP1000
Important: There is no procedure for finding an unknown combination from the front of the lock. A lost combination must be cleared by removing the combination chamber from the lock housing, then a new combination can be set.
LP1000 Series FAQ
Resetting the Code/Combination From a Lost Code
1. Remove the back plate from the front lock housing by removing the six back plate screws.
2. Remove the two Phillips head screws (F) securing the guide bracket (D
to the front housing. Grasp the guide bracket and slide it back to
disengage it from the clutch linkage (see figure 1).
3. Lift the two chamber links (A) off of the control shaft (B) using a small flat blade screwdriver. Mark links to assure proper reassembly (see figure 1).
4. Remove the combination chamber (E) by removing the Phillips head screws (G) at each end of the chamber (see figure 1).
5. Remove shaft bushing (C) from control shaft (see figure 1).
6. Remove chamber cover marked ILCO UNICAN (A) (see figure 2) by gently tapping the lip of the chamber cover (A) at the control shaft end of the
chamber (see figure 3) with a screwdriver to detach it from the staked joints (B).
7. Lay the chamber on its side as shown in figure 4.
8. With tweezers, or other tool, slide the "E" ring (B) off the unlocking slide
stud (A) (see figure 17-4), then gently lift the end of the unlocking slide (C) over the unlocking slide stud (A) (see figure 5).
Note: The unlocking slide (C) is under spring tension and will be easier to lift if pushed to the left to ease tension. Swing the unlocking slide (C) sufficiently to clear the gears, (D) no further than shown in figure 5.
9. Depress the lockout slide (E) as shown in figure 6. The gears (D) are now free to rotate.
10. Turn each gear (D) so that the slots (F) are aligned as shown in figure 6.
11. Return the unlocking slide (C) over the unlocking slide studs (A) while making certain the five toes (G) are engaged in the five gear pockets (F). It may be necessary to adjust each gear (D) slightly to make proper alignment between toes and gear slots (see figures 6 & 7).
Re-secure the "E" ring on the stud (A). Your chamber will now resemble figure 7 and is ready for reassembly with the lock housing.
REASSEMBLY
1. Re-secure the chamber cover (A) marked ILCO UNICAN. Make sure the staked joints (B) (see figure 2) on both end plates fit through both slots on the chamber cover.
2. Re-secure the shaft bushing (C) with flat side facing up (see figure 8).
3. Secure the combination chamber with the two Phillips head screws (G) you removed earlier.
4. Re-secure the chamber links (A) onto the control shaft.
5. Replace the guide bracket (D) by aligning the clutch linkage in the guide bracket and secure with the two Phillips head screws (F) previously removed.
6. Replace the back plate and secure it with the six back plate screws.
SETTING THE COMBINATION
Do not attempt to set a combination until the complete unit has been reassembled.
Perform the following steps in the order shown.
1. Turn the outside lever once to the stop position and then release.
2. Enter the new combination.
3. Turn the outside lever to the stop position, make sure the latch is fully retracted, then release
the lever.

Rebuilt trans shifts 1st to neutral only


It sounds to me like you missed the "shifter knob" on the shift shaft when you installed the transmission back into the case. If your transmission was shifting correctly on work bench, it should at least shift from first to second gear.

You're going to have to pull the transmission back out of the engine case. With the transmission out of the case, look into the the transmission cavity and hold the shift lever so that the short shift arm is level parallel to the bottom of the engine case. Mark the outer end of the shaft so that you can verify that it is still level once you get the transmission back in the case.

Now, put the shift lever (lever you shift the transmission with) temporarily on the shift shaft and support it some way so as to hold it level. Install the transmission. Now, before finishing the installation job, check to see if the shaft is still "level". Install the four bolts that hold the "acess plate" of the transmission in and try to shift through all the gears by turning the mainshaft and having someone hold or turn the countershaft. Make sure the transmission works before you finish up the job.

If the transmission still doesn't shift. Take it back out and work with it in a vise until you figure out the problem. It'll probably be something to do with the shifting mechanism rather than the gears.

Good Luck
Steve

Shifter noise on my 1985 sportster


The Sportster has a "cassette" type transmission. The transmission can be removed without the necessity of splitting the cases to get at it like most other motorcycles.

To remove the transmission one must remove the primary drive component that include the compensator sprocket, the primary chain, and the clutch assembly on the left side of the engine. On the right side of the engine, you'll have to remove the rear brake master cylinder, the front chain sprocket cover, and the front chain sprocket.

Going back to the left side of the engine and remove the four bolts that hold the transmission front plate (access cover) to the engine cases. There are two "pry points" on the access cover. Look around the edge of the cover and you will see them. Pry the access cover off gently and the transmission will come out of the engine cases. The shifter shaft will remain in the cases. When you reinstall the transmission, mark the shaft in such a manner that you can tell what position the shifter shaft finger is pointing. It should be level pointing to the rear of the engine as the transmission is reinstalled in the case.

If you can find a Clymer's manual #M428, it explains in detail the removal and repair of the transmission.
