Title: 1929 Sloper 500cc Crankshaft Rivets
Post by: Swoopster on 31 July, 2017, 07:51:46
Hi Folks,
Have now discovered the rivets which hold the flywheel [on the primary drive side] to the primary drive shaft/stub are loose and as a minimum the rivets need replacing - so 3 questions:
1. Does anyone know where I can buy replacement rivets?
2. Does anyone have a drawing of the rivets and material specification?
3. Has anyone tried using High Tensile Steel bolts instead of rivets?
Hope someone can help!
Regards
Ray

Hi Ray,
I have forwarded an email reply I got from David, he included a couple of photos that I'll put into the Google drive folder you have access to, but since you've got your engine apart, you'll have seen it anyway.
Cheers,
Bevan
