Angle Drive


Recommended Posts

For ref  what did you find .?

Do not forget to fit the washer between angle and gearbox drive,  any 7/16" will work  (its on a BL tech note)

This just makes sure there is no pre load on the angle drive input spindle, 

Leave it out and the drive will most likey fail early

This was the article I found in text mentions BSB which has 55 degree thread pictures show die as BSCy which has 60 degree thread, I ordered a 3/4 26tpi BSB before noticing the anomaly. I used it with the spreading screw of the die holder fully in and it cleaned up the thread to enable a good fit, it tightened without needing pliers, with the new speedo cable before noticing the above, other articles indicate that the speedo end is M12 x 1.

I accept no responsibility for the above info as it shows the perils of using the net for data.

Used Tracy Tools Ltd, no connection but very helpful, the gentleman I spoke to after noticing my error indicated that as both dies are 3/4 26 tpi it would be very difficult to tell the difference. In my opinion as I was using the die in a non critical situation on worn and damaged components and what I did worked either die would probably do.

Did ring a speedo cable maker twice but apparently the person who could give me the answer to the thread size was not available.
