HOME and how to join Forum Open Area General Scott topics I feel a bit wobbly Re: Flywheels

Roger Moss

Hi Stan and all–
We get quite a few flywheels with damaged tapers and have made equipment to sucessfully regrind the tapers.
If damaged tapers result in wobbly flywheels, than the engine will seem rough.
Reverting to original standards of accuracy will definitely help.
Scotts were good engineers.
When they said “Made to limit gauge” They meant it!
If accuracy has been lost over the years, it can be regained.
What man has done before, can be done again.
Unfortunately, if Scotts made 1500 bikes in 1929, then economies of production scale were vastly different to taking a single engine and renewing it as a “Toolroom Special”
As I said before–
It is not a case of what can be done —
Only a case of what can be afforded!
