Re: Bucket Request

Buckets are really cam followers. They make them in .05 mm increments. If you have a tight valve that has a 2.95 mm bucket you adjust it by replacing that with a 2.90mm bucket thus "gaining" .05 mm additional clearance (the LT vaves alway wear tight).

Buckets are used to adjust the valves on the motor of the LT. Here's what one looks like.

Re: Bucket Request

John,
I'm pretty sure I have a few of those.
If you're not set yet, PM me and I'll check, confirm, and get 'em out express.

Re: Bucket Request

Thanks Curtis,


Jeff has 'em in the mail already. I just need to get it all back together before Saturday Afternoon when I head for FT Hood, TX.

Looks like I may be up in your neck of the woods at the end of the month. I have to go to Andover, MA and will take a few days off after and get Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont under my belt. I have had so much business travel lately the only way I am going to get any serious riding in is to take the bike on a few of these trips.

Yeah I know. I don't know what my time will be like but I should have time one day to hook up in the evening. I'll be there Sunday afternoon thru Wednesday night. Heck if I leave early on Saturday I can be there for most of the day Sunday. I lived in Austin from 76 to 80 and used to go out to Lake Travis all the time. Keep Sunday afternoon open for sure.
