4 speed clutch hub to mainshaft taper fit up
Finally got the taper between the mainshaft and clutch hub to fit up tight. There were two suspect high spots on my mainshaft, I honestly couldn't tell if they were high or low, but assuming that a low spot had a high spot galled up next to it, I went to work. I bought inch wide nail boards from the beauty supply store, 100/180, 220/320, and 400/600. I figured the wide board across the taper with keep the cutting even. A couple of rubs with the coarse and more rubs with each finer grade in the suspect areas and more rubs with finest grade all around. The clutch hub swedged up nice and tight and had to be pulled with a puller. Success!
