Decided to start on resealing the rear drive. Opened it up and discovered that what I thought was a good unit was in fact for the most part scrap. The teeth on the pinion were galled, the inner race of the needle bearing was loose on the hub and the remaining bearings felt rough. After I sank into a funk for a few hours, I posted a message to the old Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group (which has now moved to asking if anyone had a good used unit I could buy. Instead, Charley Cole of Zydeco Racing came to rescue once again with good gears and a good deal on rebuilding the drive. Boxed it up and sent it off to him the next day.
