Transmission .

Postby Matt Spencer » Sun Apr 24, 2016 11:17 am

Is the gearset & case on the 750 interceptor the same as the 350 Bullet ?

therefore fittable to a ' special ' of some displacement . ( the Bullet one ) .

Are the Indian ones made from good British Steel , as it were . Or would 100 Hp
at the dragstrip lead to tears and infamy .

Im presuming India Bullet Gearboxes arnt unobtainum , and for a makeshift set up
would be tolerable ?? . If it disentegrates other effects would make it senseless .

There were bloody great 1000 V Twin Enfields , was it about the same gearset & bearings ,
or are the little ones ( 350/500 a differant kettle of fish .

Thanks .

The Albion gearbox fitted to Redditch Bullets was about the worst thing there is about these bikes. It can be made to work ok but needs lots of attention. The Madras Bullets did not have anything better until about 2010/11. They also were not all the same for all years.
100 hp! You must be joking! The Indian Enfields are built in India using Indian steel. They seem to be a bit better now than they were when first imported into N. America, but still don't expect much if you build a performance engine and expect the gearbox to handle it.
Side valve Enfield V twins were prewar machines. They made about 25 hp. I would hope they updated and strengthened the gearbox over the next 70 years.
Good luck with your project, keep us posted.

Ive never had a Bullet but I have an Inter. The gearbox is woefully inadequate in every way.
The one thing different I know is that the Inter has a sleeved mainshaft and the Indian one
for the single doesnt. I guess that means the Indian shaft breaks more slowly but wears out
faster.
The design of the box is odd and the execution crapulous. Oh, the materials are about the
hardness of lead turned up on worn out lathes with dull tools.
I currently use it as ballast under my work bench.

Please pardon the bad attitude. I is earned.

Well apart from that it really works well anchoring the bench.
They arent that expensive used. You should get one and tear it down
some rainy winter day for amusement and ....horror.
Perhaps Ill come by and give you mine to disembowel as I take photos of
your facial expressions.
