You may need to use a second comealong on the other side. Using just one may be causing the motor to bind up in the slides.

Ours was several segments of Masonite with pieces of modern house shingles laid underneath to makeup for wear. We got a paper pulley after sending the dimensions. It fit a little tight. There are 10 bolts holding it on.

How far should the fiber extend past the motor fly wheel?

farmstrong,
The more meat you start out with on the friction, the better. Just leave enough clearance so you have neutral!
Now I feel kind of embarassed putting my 2 pfennigs' worth in as I didn't get as fancy as what you guys are talking about. Being a poor dirt farmer, I used the masonite, cut and installed it in an afternoon and as for machining the friction - a couple of trips around the yard looked after that!
That is in keeping with the ol' testimonials where guys changed the friction out in the field, between loads whilst threshing and over a beverage or three!
G.

Fred,

Was this Heider originally came from Goshen, Indiana back in 1995?

Craig,
My brother and I adopted Buckley Old Engine Show's Heider this winter for some much needed attention. Not sure where it originally came from.

Default Heider Friction Drive

Pulled out the worn friction discs today. Brother is going to order replacments from paperpulley. Might also try cutting some from masonite.

Default Heider Friction Drive

Engine slid forward rather easily. Hard part will probably be putting new friction discs back on.

I worked with Oilpulled replacing the friction wheel on our 12-20C Heider. Paperpulley had made a few already and actually thought one might still be on the shelf! Other than a rather snug fit on the flywheel they made it perfectly based on our measurements. Approx 1/2" larger dia. than flywheel, and about 1/4" smaller than the distance between discs for neutral clearance-though would have to measure mine to say for sure. The crankshaft did slide nicely out of the housing by sliding the engine further forward. Before ordering mine, I entertained machining a stack of masonite discs, using a router bolted to a pivot arm to make perfectly reproducible circles.
