Next you can drill 1 or 2 holes for the Pins..Make sure you go far out enough so it doesn't get in the way of the Bearing and so the gear is the thickest on the outside.. Just make sure you don't drill through it.. You can even use the bearing as a guidelin..You can drill either one or 2 I used only 1 since I am using 1/8 wheel pins..It should fit snug...

Then put the gears back in. Remember you can Take out the first gear so it will be less rotating mass.. Just make sure you keep the one way bearing in there as the spacer...

Ty, now that it is locked into 2nd instead of the single speed conversion the gearing is ALOT higher.. I should be able to hit around 80ish ( Hoping for around 73ish) with the RCM speec calculator.. Yea I don't kno what to do with my nitro stuff..got a few NICE enginges with pipes.. and a few gallons of nitro oh well time to make a fire

It's too bad that electric jato won't get any off days where it won't start anymore.[]

I realize this thread is old... but I'm doing this very thing now... and I am LOST on something! It seems the most important picture isn't shown... and that is what the clutch should look like with the pins in it. He says he's going to drill one hole, but that clutch has like three extra holes in it! Just what is the "pin" supposed to do, or catch, or whatever?? His picture doesn't demonstrate what it's supposed to do exactly. Unless I'm not seeing it. Now my tranny is apart.. and I'm not sure what to do next.

Thanks guys!

Maybe I'm not seeing it right?

2 Holes (i.e. stock)



2 holes stock, then three more? At least two more. No?

I don't have the parts myself, but if you do it should be pretty self explanitory. I'm assuming there's two parts and you want to lock them together with a pin. Just drill a couple holes and stick a couple pins in there.

Just a thought: My shift point was way off when I first got my jato. The screw was loosened about as far as it would go. Because of this the car would start off in second. I'm sure it was in 1st for maybe a split second when accelerating from a stop, but it was so short you couldn't tell it had shifted. It just ran like it was in 2nd all the time. Wouldn't this be an easier option than going into the tranny to lock it in 2nd?
