In the process of experimenting with the shifter I messed up by not properly loctite-ing the cam screw which backed out and scratched up the back of the basket. Still worked fine but looked hack. Since the basket is getting grooved it’s time to atone for the sin of not using loctite and replace the basket hardware. I’ve also noticed significant wear on the throwout bearing. And something else which is a bit weird. The throwout bearing has become magnetic and is picking swarf out of the tranny oil. Maybe that’s why the bearing is a bit rough? Much smoother after a flush.🤔

First time I’ve done it but I have been on Betas since ‘89. Really wasn’t necessary but I didn’t like the damage I’d done to the back of the assembly so I figured I’d just get it done. The clutch has actually been really good.
