noisy middle gear

Post  Kevster on Sun 08 May 2016, 10:15 pm

Hi all,
I have a noisy middle gear and was wondering how much to raise the crank.
those that have eliminated the noise what is your working clearance now.
like to compare what I have now and where I need to get to.
many thanks
Kev

I'm not near my engine to give you a measurement but I used a coke can to shim under Crank till my gear quietened down. A few mill. Not sure if I used one or two slithers.
