I recently got a bantam 5000. No idea of year, Serial tag was taken off before I got it. My goal is to make it operational for my two boys (And me, of course) and maybe later clean it up a bit. I have done some searching on the internet, and I have looked at a lot of restored pictures. I have a couple of questions as I move through this.
1. I did not get a clutch with it. I would like to fabricate a belt pulley clutch. Has anyone done this before? Or something similar? Got pictures?
2. The steering shaft is not attached in any way. The steering gears appear to be in reasonably good shape though. Is there a specific way that the loop at the front end needs to be set to hold the shaft? Also, does anyone have any pictures of the retainer/bearing thing that holds the shaft to the dash?
