this is for a 74 50s with 130 kit. 4 speeds. may have been 3 speed conversion
the drive shaft has 2 chips out of it...
is this shot or is it usable?


also, the clutch basket edges are buggered a little, can i just clean up the edges? this is the worst one.
the clutch came apart when the clip came off the top...


ive had no luck w this motor. almost nothing so far has been usable.
it may be just cheaper to replace the motor. i keep finding more ruined parts.

The drive shaft is usable, not the best but usable.

The clutch basket is also useable but they should be considered disposable. The thinner 4 plate clutch plates tend to make a mess of the baskets.

is it easy to remove and rivet the new basket to the gear??
do you think the drive shaft would catch on anything or break again? should i worry?
if i replaced these 2 parts and added new cases, id have a brand new motor! haha

If you need to use the old basket, file those slot faces smooth(actually suggested in Haynes) so the plates can move up & down freely without sticking on those rough spots. Otherwise your clutch will drag. Do it evenly and you should be OK if you're on a budget. Easy enough to change later without splitting or even removing motor. Deburr the shaft & use it.

I seemed to me that if it was smoothed so it wouldn't drag, I'd be OK. Just wanted a second opinion. I'm on a budget n already have enough parts that are getting tossed... thankful to have at least ine useful part! Thanks.
