    Well I'm glad you are impressed. I'd be even more impressed if the sprag grabbed cold.

    Do you have the new sprag in place now?

    I once greased the sprag up real well, and it did the same thing, I had to clean out the grease, there has to be some friction for the dog bone rollers to grab and rock tight. FYI I ordered three bearings from Ali Express, and only received one, I am going to try to get the others or a refund but the website is horrible.

    I don't know what's in there. Kieth Newton rebuilt the bike for an Ottawa owner after the rod was thrown due to anti sumping valve failure. Could be a 14 or an 18. When warm it has given me a reliable grab and start maybe 400 times since purchase. Cold she just spins below 15 C.

    Most AliExpress stuff is free postage and I have found buying more than one ends up being a delivery of one so I now buy single items multiple times.

    I bought the first one a couple of years ago. Unlike the Norvil item, it made the starter work.
    Unconvinced, I waited until it made a couple of hundred starts before ordering two more for the shelf.
    No problem with either of the orders, just a bit slow on delivery.

    Glad that these are working for other people as well.

    Pretty soon I'll report on my $19 battery!

    After a lot of run arounds I finally got a refund on the other two that didn't ship, and the one I did get, is installed, so I have no spares, I might order one at a time.

    There are a number of sellers offering the sprag on AliExpress.
    Best to order from a seller with all or mostly good reviews.

    The Chinese Aliexpress sellers also rely on subsidised postage based on China's emerging economy status, so ordering 2 or 3 when for 1 the postage is free can perversely increase the postage, as well as risking only 1 showing up.
