bearings??
« on: June 11, 2019, 06:27:45 am »
Hi all.
Just sorted this 1963 SE2 out,runs really well but has a small rattle coming from the flywheel shaft.
Any way these bearings can be repaired please?
Thanks

I see several methods...
Use thicker oil or even grease on those areas. (Easiest option)
Solder the area and hone for good fit. (This is the best results but you will burn your paint.)
Sleeve them with brass tubes (actually works pretty good but you have to find the right size tubes.)
Use J-B weld to make up the gap. (I don't know how long wearing a J-B weld is the bearing surface...)

I agree leave it. On my SE2 I make sure the pulley and the crank are as close to the engine frame as
Possible to reduce movement of the crankshaft from side to side keeping rattling noise to a minimum.
