I've been using ethanol free gas in all my bikes, I can only imagine what the corn gas would do. I've got some more washers coming so I'll see if that works.

Are there workshop instructions detailing how to do this?
Thanks for help

Next weld a 1 inch wide by 1/8 flat stock strap across the center of the outer plate, and in the center of this strap, weld a 3/4 nut. To give yourself more finger room to work the rubbers, I welded the flat stock to two 1/2 inch black iron pipe unions which functioned as spacers keeping the flat stock strap about 1 inch above the friction plate.Engage top gear, apply the rear brake, and apply torque to the welded in nut, while a second person pushes in the rubbers. Sorry that I cannot show a pic of the tool .... I am on the road .... Be home in two weeks. PM me then if you need a pic of the tool.
