I am building my first Pantera 50 and have a question. The main gear mesh is too tight for about 1/3 of the main gear. You can feel it bind up against the clutch pinion as you rotate it around. I know it will wear in some later - but not sure if that should be normal.

Ideas? Suggestions.

Thanks,

If you think it's too tight, losen the bolts to the bearing blocks to let it move..then retighten. Also ensure the clutchbell isnt' leaning. You can ususally see this by sighting along the clutch to the bottom of the bell. the space around should be even, and the clutch edge to the bottom of the bell should be even.

I have built 4 Panteras. 3 of the 4 were tight. After a tank or two it should be ok.

Don't loosen the block and move it out. Set that block where it belongs and leave the gear tight. You will see some dust after the first couple of runs. This is the teeth of the gears bedding into one another which is what you want. This is a common "problem" reported and it's not a problem, it actually works in your favor.

Yep that is normal. It will make a good bit of gear noise the first 3 or 4 tanks also.

Just ran a minute or so to check engine - no blades or tail and it already is looser. Thanks,
