Hey guys, first post here.
Working on a 1980 Peugeot 103. I was trying to be a cool kid and take out three of the ball weights in my clutch like the pros do, so I put a socket on each end of the crank - the clutch and flywheel sides - and spun them apart to try to unscrew the variator nut.
Well, it didn't work. I got something loose all right, but I kept ratcheting for all eternity and nothing would fully unscrew. So, getting frustrated, I decided to pull the variator apart on another day after doing some more research.
Only problem is, now I can't tighten anything back to how it was. I used the double ratchet trick again to no avail, just kept spinning and spinning and spinning...nothing's getting tighter OR looser now. It seems like the flywheel nut is just sitting on top of the crank doing nothing.
When I try to bump start the bike, the engine won't engage. Wheel just spins.
I really screwed the pooch on this one, didn't I? Somebody tell me the obvious answer that is very likely staring me in the face.
