That big post was a tired drunk post.
On page 7 there is Variator assy.
Inside PART 1, there is a needle bearing on the inside, held in by a circlip on the starting clutch side.
Maybe someone bought a PA50 I variator and put it on because the bearing does not touch the shaft and if you tighten it, it was missing the washer also, it wobbles and locks up the variator, if you try to drive at all, it stays in low gear position.
The stock one had broken end cap causing it to stay at 17 then jump to 36 down a hill or on the stand without the aircleaner. This had a cracked piece probably due to improper tightening and balancing be it was the wrong Model Variator.
I think I might remove the PA50 I variator, since it works right and slide on this supposedly "PA50 II" variator and see if it slides on nice. If it does, it is a PA50 I part on the wrong bike.
The neck says PA50 II, on the one I bought the TJT for.
I think someone replaced it with the wrong part.
The ID of the bearing has no seat or shaft to rest on. It looks like it would fit the PA50 I nice.
In the wiki it shows different shafts.
Can I make a bushing at my shop, are they in there stock, or just for people with the wrong part.
My pa50 II has the crank on the left, but it looks like the main starting clutch/variator ramp I have,"part 1 on page 7" are for the PA50 I.
Some jerk must have blown it up and bought the wrong one.
Now I need Half a PA50 II variator and also a pedal-crank shaft drive and the new pins that go with the pedals because that is bent and the pedal spins and falls off..
Like I said, Previous posts wer Drunk, sorry.
Does anyone here have a PA50II variator and a pedal shaft with pedals and the pins.
I mean ,this super old guy bought a new carb and put it on instead of cleaning the old, so I have that ina box and a complete manual printed up an bought that this guy gave me.
Maybe bought the wrong variator, too.
Jeez. So much for bolt it on and have another runner.
I bought the TJT because the PA50II one was wasted and was gonna notch the PA50I and add the other ramp plate.
But my plan is crippled.
Email me if you got parts, we'll do the paypal.
