Posted this on Britchopper but maybe someone on here can help?
Bit of a strange request, I've got an XS1100 bevel box behind a Reliant Robin gearbox to run a chain drive. They are solidly joined using an adaptor plate, so could I run the yoke that goes into the Reliant gearbox without the nut on the end of the output shaft, just to allow a small amount of movement to allow for frame flex etc? A freind who is very clued up reckons that the yoke might have to be bolted up tight to keep the rest of the gearbox in tolerance but i would like to leave it off, anyone have experience of anything like this. Many thanks, Phil.
Is there any way to tell if the yoke has to be bolted in?
