Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

So long story short I picked up a za50 on cr and Iv been going thrue it. when I install the clutch cover on the za50 the transmission seizes up but When the covers off everything spins nice.

What I'm doing wrong? (edited)

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

"someone"

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

Yes dirty Dillion it was me not really though the guy before me must did it lol. Runs nice!!

I did one time try using a bolt from the hardware store on an e50 crankcase drain bolt but I noticed It wouldn't clear the crank before running it.

Dirty Dillion doesn't mess up because I already did

Yes, thank you for innovating the drain bolt transmission lock for Puch ZA50. You've saved me hours of R&D.

You can probably Market those bolts so people can use them like a piston stop.

Post number 11 we got two ways to go to hit 600.

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

It could be that I'm using silicone instead of the correct gasket but i notice the bolt looked kinda long when I was checking the transmission out.

Whatever it's all good in the hood

Naw dude piston stops are a horrible invention, only thing they are good for is timming

So if you drill a detent hole in the internals of the transmission you can have an index to set your timing.

And I don't like piston stops either but people will buy them just trying to get you some revenue for all your hard work.

This is EXACTLY your problem. The gasket is used in the process of determining trans shim thickness.

Without it, your trans is most likely over-shimmed and ugly things will happen to another ZA50.

You need to do some reading before continuing to run it.

Pic of your drain "bolt" please.

He said "timming", lol.

You're up scoot.

And it looks like the za 50 fan club is going to give you help with a few good shakes of harassment and teasing.

I fixed it for you I think it's self-explanatory now.

It's kind of like a justin with a beaver.......

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

The gasket was maybe .2 mm thick, like yea It probably matters but dam like I don't think the side drain bolt was supposed to be that close In clearance?

Im pretty sure it was not stock , it didn't have a fiber gasket instead a lock washer

I'm just fooling around right now, Iv seen worse za50 set-ups. (edited)

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

Yeah, no trans cover gasket is a death sentence for ZA's. Although it is cool when one day the bearing just ploops outta the case

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

Dude it's good for a few test runs we are talking about .1mm maybe

I hope you installed some new Pucks in that thing did you flip the gear and change the springs?

Za Transmissions are very sensitive especially when it comes to setting up the clearances.

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

Pucks looked okay but Its on my list if I wanna spend more money. New springs too? Naw didn't flip second gear yet

You're so right, it's just an engineered combustion engine. I'm sure the original engineers left plenty of room for the end user to adjust endplay to whatever they felt like.

No but I don't think Il hurt anything.

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

If the end play was within it's tolerance of .05mm to .25mm before you removed the .2mm gasket, that would leave you with an 80% chance that there's NO end play, which eventually results in the bearing blowing a hole in the cover.

Who knows, maybe with a hole in the cover, it might run cooler. You are a genius.

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

It even looks cooler.

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

Does look cool

Re: Help countboy with with a Za50 transmission lock up

Just get a closed end bearing . LOL
