Hi,

I have recently acquired a Myford super 7 Mk1 but it has a broken countershaft arm and drive belt cover. Will a Myford super 7 Mk2 countershaft arm fit on a Mk1?

Thanks

Not sure of the answer to this one. The MK1 & MK2 have different clutches, but don't know if the casting is different for the counter arm. I could take some close up pictures of my Mk 2 super 7B if you want. Could post them on here for you.

Steve.

If you P.M your email address i can send you the full parts manual in PDF form. I think it is for my model , but you could compare with it.

HI,

If you post some close up pictures it would be great as i have the broken countershaft arm although it is in three parts and I could compare them.

Thanks

Well a simple thank you would have sufficed.

I expect suitable pics are already on ‘goggle images, other forum threads, members albums, epay etc? Never mind, perhaps the OP has not been on line since?

Sorry for not replying. Thankyou for the pictures they have been very helpful. I have just realised that the clutch casting is also had parts chipped off so I may have to replace the countershaft and clutch.

Thanks

Ah the dreaded clutch. A friend of mine was recently brazing one that had cracked. No parts available for the MK1. Not sure if i saw somewhere that someone had made one from a Moped front drum brake.

The old style clutch is one of the few parts no longer available for the myford. I believe there is a mod that can be done to rectify this.

This guy might be worth trying for difficult to get Myford parts, I have often seen his adverts.

That was Myford themselves! The MK1 clutch was reputedly the brake off a Raleigh moped. Dickiest operating mechanism ever but it must have worked.

Hopper the Mk 1 clutch was a cast iron split ring. that grabbed onto a drum. Or did it push out on to a drum , cannot remember. The ring can snap as a friends did. The mod i saw was using a moped front drum brake. With the brake shoes acting on a outer type drum. Wish i could find it. Maybe some others have seen it done.

That's the first clutch on the MK1 Super 7. The very first Myford clutch, fitted to the ML7 before the Super 7 was invented, was a factory modified and fitted Raleigh moped brake whose shoes gripped the outer drum when the moped brake arm was operated by a djcky linkage from the central shaft.
