Hi Steve, wow, beautiful job on the drawing! You should re-head the post as 'cad drawing' of the electrical panel so guys not following this thread can see it. Your dimension is fine on the tab in your cad drawing. That starter button should work fine. You can make a nice 90 degree bracket and it wil look great. Yes 2mm makes a perfect notch for the connector. Pretty fancy I just use old stencil paper and pencil and keep my fingers crossed. Lou

:lol: Thanks Lou! I just wanted to make sure all the dimensions were close or exact to your parts. I don't want to send other folks around the bend.
I will create a new post as you suggested. On my version of the wiring plate, I do agree with you to add another bend tab to attach the push button starter you see above. Only, I also need to make room for the original starter solenoid. If I could just convert the existing solenoid to include the push button starter switch..........

That is a nice drawing. What CAD software is that? Since I'm now retired and can't use my old 3-D CAD system at work to draw up Ducati parts any more, I've been sort of looking around for a simple 2-D system to throw up on my home computer. Any recommendations?
Thanks,
Bill

Hi Bill, the CAD program is a Mac version of ViaCAD. It's actually very good. This version came with the Mac when I changed from Windows to Mac as a purchase incentive. It also does 3D and imports & exports from/to many other programs. I'll create either a zip or IGS/DXF copy for the members. (if I know how...)

Cheers,
Steve

:oops: Folks,
not much is happening on the build front....except for the retaining wall outside!
No, we are waiting on some club tools loaned to assist with dismantling the engine. Somebody had knocked off the alternator locking tool, hence the CAD file created to make one.
Other than that....

Cheers,
Steve

:twisted: Folks, just a small update to this....
The primary gear is proving to be stubborn.... it's not budging. So, I've called for the big gun gear puller.

Also, does anyone know where I can source another one? It's missing a fair chunk of teeth.

As soon as the cases are split apart, the sooner I can set up the rear swing-arm droop angle....

Now... where is that hammer......

Ciao You must put in tension the extractor.
You have to warm up the gear until touching it with your fingers you can not stand the pain.
You do not have heat too much.

You have to give it a shot with a bar of brass or aluminum on the outside of the gear.

It works.

If you are not able to remove the gear, I can come to you, tonight after dinner.

In Italy they say so. :lol: :lol:

ciao

Steve, its customary for rebuilders of the Pantah engines to use thread-locking compound between the primary pinion
and the shaft as well as around the woodruff key. Essentially what Carlo says (Bless Him!) is correct, so just do a s follows:

Once your gear extractor is in place, start to heat the pinion with a narrow-flame torch. As it heats up increase the torque on the extractor-tool bolt.
Once it all seems to start to cook, torque the extractor down a bit more and then give the extractor tool a good WELT with a decent-sized hammer.
The primary gear SHOULD jump off the crankshaft and fly perhaps a meter or two across your workshop!!! Job Done!

As we say in UK, as well as Oz...................."When In Doubt, Give It A Clout" ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

:D :D :D Poison, you legend!
I gave it all the necessary welting and it did indeed fly off across the garage! Luckily, I didn't eyeball it during the heating/extraction process!
This forum and it's members are such a great source of knowledge, advice, support and friendship! Great work.
I didn't realise the gear is tapered on the shaft. I thought it was simply keyed on the shaft.

So, we are back on track to continue to dismantle the engine cases. Any other advice to take heed?

Cheers,
Steve
