Cruiser 75 - Flywheel/Magneto Nut

Post  BugBit on Mon Jan 07, 2013 9:02 pm

Hi. The flywheel/magneto nut on my Cruiser 75 (1H) has come loose. Does anyone know what the correct torque setting might be for it?

tightening flywheel

There was an aluminium wedge which went between the engine sprocket and clutch sprocket to lock the engine(you can get one of these from Paul Powell 01453 762592) without this it is very difficult.
Then there was a "villiers Hammertite" spanner,which had a hexagon on one end for the nut and a block on the other,the instruction was to hammer this spanner until tight(those were the technical days) i am sure this will relate to a torque figure somewhere ,but villiers never issued those figures.
Even so it will be almost impossible to torque the flywheel safely without the blocking wedge,
