D2 going in the shop

Looking good d2Gary, I have those odd numbered clutch hubs too, I wonder if they were made by a outside supplier? I bought my D2 clutch parts from John Parks, he's a really nice guy to deal with and has a good product.

One inner hub (dry) has deep grooves worn in it which will hang the clutch plates up. Compare it to the greasy one where the splines are relatively smooth (small grooves).
I believe that is what he is referring too.

Here's a better picture. The face of the hub has been worn down and hopefully you can see the wear
The clutch was against that worn area and the edge of the clutch is worn away.
And the groves

I've managed to get a little time in on cleaning some parts.
Still have some straightening and welding to do.

that's a pile of work cleaning up all those bits and pieces,

i can't remember who it was, but someone fabbed up new fender skins for a d2 or a d4, i wonder if that would be more time effective versus trying to straighten and repair those old fenders? the supports look good and could be re-used? the hardest part would be getting the curved edge at the front, whoever did it before did a beautiful job of documenting the process i remember the pictures.

Don't look like you ever changed the fuel filters or did any maintenance. catskinner

You're right I did very little to keep it running, no maintenance whatsoever. It did more work than a machine that size should be able to brand new let alone 70 plus years old.
I hope to make up for it by my current restoration . Going to try and make everything mechanically sound and keep it very well maintained.

My left side clutch inner turns inside the out so I'm guessing that either the teeth are off the plates or the hub is flogged out
