    I am looking for a 40t or a 44t dished rear sprocket for my 26 JD. Is any one reproducing these?

    Thank you

    Steve,

    I see what you mean about the flair. My fender does not seem to have this. I wonder if at some point someone hammered it out not knowing. Might be a bit difficult to reestablish this flair...

    If I'm not mistaken wouldn't this be correct for 26-27? My parts book 22-28 list 2239-27 for 1926 & 1927 twins.

    Steve, I'm glad you got this! I might have been bidding against you :)

    I had to leave for work for a week or so. When I return I will try to adjust the BTDC timing to 7/16". Would this dimension be any different between a Timer machine and a distributor machine?

    1926 JD Coil Polarity Help!

    Can someone tell me the polarity of a stock Harley JD coil? I can't see any marks on the coil itself. I guess I need to know which ear connects to the distributor and which goes to the batt.
