Stimmt, die gehört genau da hin; ist aber eine Hupe vom VW Käfer. Die originale (Bosch) sieht aber fast genau so aus und ist gerade bei mir zur Reparatur

I am re-assembling the gearbox.

New Bearings have been fitted - the Countershaft had a 6203 bearing and dodgy shims fitted instead of a 3202 which has now been corrected. Had to make up a tool to compress the Thrust Spring on the Countershaft so the snap ring could be removed followed by the bearing.

Hopefully tomorrow I will finish assembling the gearbox.

Finished the gearbox today - Made new studs to hold the end cover plate on as the old ones had stretched threads and also had to adjust the neutral switch contact to ensure reliable operation.

BMW didn't make it easy to put the end cover plate back on because you have to tension the kickstarter through half a turn, heat the end cover up, fit the end cover over the studs and tap down the end cover then drive the Input Shaft bearing on a few mm; tap down the end cover, drive the Input Shaft bearing on a few mm and repeat until the end cover plate is seated on the gasket whilst holding the kickstarter under tension. The kick starter idler gear is what gets in the way in a similar way to when you want to remove the end cover plate.

Looking good.

How did you manage with fitting the input shaft end disc, it gets in the way of the kick start gears.

Hi Graham,

hope you didn't miss something. Unfortunately exactly this happened to me. Have a look at your picture "homemade studs". At the end of the shaft there is a spring (84) and a washer (35)visible. Normally there should be a another washer with a funny shape, a kind of a splash plate. You can see it under Literature, Bildtafel, Getriebe for the R 26. It is number 34.

Bad news?

regards
Tom

Thanks Brian and Tom for alerting me to a missing washer........my gearbox did not have one fitted but that is not surprising given what I keep finding on this bike.  :(

I will order the washer and a new gasket when I get back from the Mediterranean next month unless you know where I can buy BMW bike parts from in Turkey, Croatia, Malta or Santorini.

Getting the cover off and on is a pain with the kick start gear setup - I used a drift to drive the shaft out of the bearing when taking the cover off and another drift to tap the bearing on to the shaft as far is the kick start idler gear then tap the cover on a bit etc when putting the cover back on.

Have also noticed that the front cover for the engine has been welded in three areas.....

Sorry Graham. :(

When I fitted the washer on my gearbox (after a few failed attempts) I partially fitted the gearbox cover but left a small gap where I could a pair of tweezers and place the washer on the end of the shaft and then push the cover the final way home.

I don't know of any suppliers in those contries but it is only a few hours to fly to Uli's. :)

Graham,

you might find a BMW dealer in those countries, but I seriously doubt that they'll be able to get this washer for you in time. Unfortunately I did not put the dimensions on record.

I missed to install the washer for exactly the same reason. It was simply not there when I opened the gear box and I was too stupid to match my findings with the parts book. If you open and close the gear box a few times, you'll get used to it and you'll be able to do it in no time. After a while it'll become relatively painless.  ;D ;D ;D

Don't give up and carry on
Tom

Re-opening the gearbox and fitting the missing washer won't be an issue........I should have seen the washer on the exploded diagram and it is odd that sometimes you can't see something that is right in front of you.

We leave Australia tomorrow for 5 weeks and I will order the washer in a three weeks time so that it will arrive at the same time as when we get back to Australia.
I have noticed that Ulis sells one size washer whereas Salis has a range of washers that are different thicknesses - Did you guys measure and use a shim size one from Salis or did you use the one from Ulis?

Cheers

I fitted the original washer and did make some measurements but it seemed as if the information was suggesting that there was no need to shim this shaft as it is able to float somewhat at the engine end.
I was a bit confused with this and as you say, Uli does not offer shims for this. In the end I checked there was clearence and left it at that and so far (300 miles) all seems ok.

I hope this helps.

Brian,

did you ever get a proper explanantion as to why these washers exist in different thicknesses? I can think about it for the next 100 years and won't find a plausible reason.

Thanks
Tom

I have two lists, one has list of things to do on your BMW single cylinder and the other list is full of life's mysteries.
