    Other than the color of the bikes (and your engine's extra cylinder), the photos in your last two posts could have been taken today in my garage. Like yours, my rebuild also will slow down considerably for the next ~10 days, but best of luck to both of us as we start reassembling them.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year to your family, and to everyone following your fascinating thread.

    And now, just for fun, pictures of the inside of my knee. Sorry for the non-motorcycle content.

    Hi Kevin,

    I am not a physician but I guess you have a stray piece of cartilage or perhaps a tear in the meniscus?

    I hope its not too serious?

    I trust that all will be well soon and you will be fit and 100% in time for your big adventure in September?

    I wont hijack your thread with pictures but back in October I had a mishap which resulted in a broken finger on my right hand which is key because I am right handed. I knew it was not trivial because immediately after I could see a bit of bone which was on the wrong side of my skin. Anyway it was all pinned back together and I am now OK but I had the best part of 8 weeks not riding or working on bikes and stuff. I will maybe put up an x-ray picture when I resurrect my 20F thread.

    Trusting you a speedy recovery.

    John

    Yep. A torn meniscus. All better now though, I had surgery yesterday. A few days on a cane and I'll be good to go.

    Thanks!

    I've been working on a couple of transmissions, or as Hendee Manufacturing Company called them, three speed countershafts. I found a second aluminum case in addition to the one I used in the Cannonball bike. I had a spare trans in 2016, but it has the later cast iron case. I decided that, while I'm rebuilding my main transmission, I'd build up a spare with the aluminum case, so it's easier to lift in and out of the moto van. The new case has a couple of chunks broken out of the mounting flange, but it shouldn't affect function. This is pretty common, if people let the mounting bolts get loose the force of the drive chain would twist the case and cause this. Also, the mounting stud holes in the new case had been heli-coiled, but whoever did it drilled them crooked, so a friend redrilled them on his Bridgeport and made some thread inserts.






    The new case has good main bearing races in it, so I decided to just pop new balls into the cage like I'd done on the other one. Here is the outer race:








    Here is the inner race before and after I polished it up:








    You also should polish the spacer because the felt seal rides on it. Here are before, during, and after photos of the process:








    I know, I need to clean my lathe up.




    Here's a video I made that shows how to put the new balls in and assemble the main bearing:






    That's it for today. I hope you find it interesting and helpful.
