Countershaft clips and washers
« on: January 11, 2019, 12:34:57 pm »

Hey wanting to make sure I get the clips and washers on the countershaft were oriented right. It’s only spins at thousands of RPMs so I figure doesn’t need to be perfect... Noticing there is a bubble and flat side to washers and clips. Assuming bubble side points to the end of the shaft that is closest. I get some orientation clues from wears lines.

I took a ton of pictures but am repeatedly having some part orientation questions. Any good resources, or do I just use common sense? Using mark Paris’s book, the factory manual, the Honda chopper engine diagrams, and the Peter Anderson YouTube videos.
