Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

I can't see you cutting the teeth, so the circular part must've been a washer/spacer off a spline. I'm running out of options of things that have them, but need holding in position.

A tool that fits over a splined shaft to get it to line up with a splined socket - (like the final drive on a gearbox where it locates into the clutch friction plate)

I agree with Sol, the splines are probably too fine for a gearbox, so I was thinking washing machine motor? Belt drive off something?

Closest. But then you went cold.

When I get outside, I’ll take a couple more pictures and reveal all.

The worst I ever had were the two little countersunk ones on a front brake reservoir on a Japanese bike. They would budge, just rounded out. In the end I had to drill them out and use Allen bolts with washers when I replace the reservoir lid.

The Japanese don't use Philips screws, which is something very few people realize. You can buy Japanese cross headed screwdrivers and they're handier than you'd expect. Need to open a camera, a Shimano gear shifter or fishing reel? Or do points on a Japanese motorcycle? Well, have I got the product for you...

Nice tip Glen thanks, everyday is a school day. Well worth knowing and I've done a quick google search on JIS kits and there they were!

Never seen one before. Some sort of final drive clutch?
