Honestly the best thing to do is read a string here on CN from last year.

I'll post the pictures here as well, and I have others for buyer. This assembly is very precision, well the gear of course, but the bearing base plate I just haven't seen.
I don't know if Byers produced this assembly or not. If not, it was done by Edmunds and I know the employee and complete prodigy. That's too much for here.

The gear and clutch assembly is attached to a bearing in the plate. The worm block attaches to the plate. The motor attaches to the plate. All in the pictures. This assembly can be bench set and put on the shaft. It includes the 'Stand' which is the original fork mount plate the assembly was attached to. In theory, this unit would run if resting on a stop or tight on a chain (meridian flips are your problem). There is no separate worm on a isolated backing plate. It is all in outstanding condition. It comes with the machined brass/bronze colored collar. This can be put on the shaft as a convenience stop for fine positioning and left in place as it is made to flush to the plate bearing.

The bore in the Byers clutch is just UNDER 1.25", I'd guess about 1/40" under. Sorry, my nice dial calipers just took a kype at a box hardware. There is PLENTY of beef in the clutch hub for that and more. The hole in the bearing IS 1.25" measuring with my micro gauge. The reduced bore of the gear can be seen in the bottom picture of the assembly.

I have no idea and most should be wondering. I'm just throwing out $440 shipped as a regular 6" bare two parts is about 300, and that last one for 260 was MY deal for quick sale. So a little different ad for a little different gear. Enjoy the pictures.

Serious inquiries please.
