I previously detailed how the spring was swallowed in the override clutch. I came up with 4 options on how to deal with this in the same post. Turns out there were 5 options. I saw an override repaired like this many years ago and I would have never considered doing this until I ran into the weird spring size in this bike. Since I was not able to find a 1 7/8″ diameter wrap spring I decided to cut off the bad section of my existing spring and locate it on the override hubs between 2 snap rings.
The hub on the driveshaft has a bronze bushing but it is not flanged like the newer un- locked overrides.
