Steel Primary Adjuster Shoe

The early primary chain adjusters didn't have the "nylon shoe" on the adjuster pad...it just had this soft metal pad, permanently attached.  The pad wore just a tiny bit(where the chain grooves started to show) and you didn't want to run your chain over tight..  The face of the adjuster was a bit narrower to fit a KR(XLCH type) tin primary cover.  The clutch basket was narrower, so the shoe had to be a bit narrower too.  I've found those nylon pads aren't always the best since the retainers often come loose, and the nylon shavings from the pad can clog your countershaft needle bearing oiler.

Oley is a GO - Make Plans to Attend

Keith Kizer  | Published on 3/10/2021
The 50th Anniversary of the Perkiomen Chapter and their annual Oley event is a GO! Local officials have given the green light for the National Meet to proceed as scheduled. 

Adjustments to this year's event will omit the traditional banquet from the schedule, but the swap meet will not be effected. 

Also the Oley firehouse and the Redding Motorcycle Club will also be open the AMCA members.

We look forward to seeing everyone there on April 23rd and 24th.

See ya there!
