Well i don't have anything for it as of now. So i figured might as well go belt to avoid the oil mess to make it easier for my boy as well. And was hoping to find the belt drive i could run inside the stock primary. Do not want to go open primary. They can rip a leg off.

You could try looking on ebay . A few years ago when I was building my UL I picked up a complete 1-1/2 " belt drive system for $115.00 . You are a great Dad I hope you can get it all to come together in time.

Thanks for the tip my friend. I have been trying that for a few weeks now on eBay and people are insane. They jack a used drive past what it costs to buy a new one. Insane i tell ya. All because the auction says pan head or knuckle head. Nuts!

And thank you for the compliment! I hope my son feels the same way when he sees my old pan all fixed up waiting for him in the front yard when he comes home. The way its looking though brother it may not happen (ie) money and belt drive.

I would just go chain but the mess of the oil on the floor and the cost is about the same as going belt so.

Thanks guys.
Jack

Yes I just took a look and don't see any good deals. It is hit and miss on finding a good price.

And if you are going to go belt , you will need to do some thing with the breather , like photo below , there are other ways that work just as good ,like just a hose running out of the primary . I did it this way because there is nothing inside the primary to fall of in there and a little air can get in there through the hole for the tube.

Kudos Fourthgear for your generous offer!, but mostly for the support you've shown for all our boys that went "over there" to defend our freedom.

My 2 oldest boys recently returned from Iraq, just a few days before Christmas actually, it was the second tour for both of them. I'm thankful to have them both back happy and healthy. The first thing we did when we were all together again was roll all the hand jammers out of the shop, kick 'em up, and go for a ride. Both of them take a lot of pride in being able to handle the old foot clutch kick starters. Its time for the next generation to carry on the tradition. Some day I'll get the wife to take a movie or a few pics of the 3 of us on the road, its quite a sight.

Jack,
Here's hoping that your son arrives home safely and enjoys his present, you're a great Dad.

Thanks brother! I am glad to hear you have your boys back. I Will post a pic of my boy jammin out the drive when he comes home. This old pan used to be suicide shift with apes. Now i put a ratchet lid on it for my boy and still has the old school apes. Here is a pic of it a long long time ago, and it still looks the same. Except now it has apes on it. And the same paint in that pic is still shiny.

I really do appreciate this help from you. You have a sunshine day my friend. I got this drive yesterday, and it is going to work GREAT! I will just take my dremmel tool to the chipped teeth and smooth them out. You are a great man!

Shine on man.

Jack
