    1969 CT70 K0 Flywheel problem

    Got me thinking which can be dangerous but I wonder that since the crank is wider on the 4 speed how did they keep the width of the engine the same? If it was wider the left side cover of a 3 speed would not fit a 4 speed. Wonder if the cover is actually made to fit the 4 speed and was used on...

    1969 CT70 K0 Flywheel problem

    I went to check today and found I have no 3 speed cranks that aren't already in something. But I did find a old picture from kirrbby that shows the difference-

    1969 CT70 K0 Flywheel problem

    Try measuring here and see if they are different. These are the engines that use the different cranks-CL70 SL70 XL70 don't know why they include all the models together because the others are different. I'll try to dig through my pile and measure them

    1969 CT70 K0 Flywheel problem

    Any way I thought new 3 speed cranks were not to be found- only the 4 speed ones were available.

    Another no spark thread, what did I do, Newbie

    For the rest of you- Your not supposed to use points files. Todays points are plated not solid like in the past. Not saying you can't but figure on replacing them when you do. It is actually better to use contact cleaner and a piece of notebook paper- not the shiny magazine type paper that has...

    Honda Suspends orders for 10 models

    That does not sound comforting, one would have thought we were getting back on our feet. The Mrs is shopping for new appliances and there naturally there is trouble there. Kind of surprising what is available and what isn't.

    1981 ct70 Headlight / stop light questions

    I imagine if it's the same set up as the earlier models the headlights are AC powered so will not be on unless running. #2 should but the batteries are so undersized and or not fully charged that at times they seem lazy ie seem to react real slow.

    Ct70 K0 mystery engine spring

    I'm thinking 13 as well- because 12 could not possibly end up in the engine case with out the clutch coming apart,but the other one sure could. Good catch
