Primary Finish Options

The TTP comes in 2 different finishes

 

 

Run it WET or DRY

Can be run dry with Shovelhead era clutches and a 1970-E84 4-speed. Chain oiler feed and return provisions are on the back side of inner primary similar to factory locations. Remove 1/8” NPT plugs and install fittings (provided). For a cleaner look with better clutch function, heat dissipation, and dependability the TTP can be run wet with primary oil with the Splined Shovel clutch in conjunction with the BAKER splined 4-speed mainshaft. Splined 4-speed mainshaft available to convert any existing 1970-E84 transmission or it can be specified in a new BAKER 4-speed build. Splined Shovel clutch is highly recommended for 93+ inch engines to avoid trouble down the road.

 

TTP Inner Primary Fittings

 

Inner Internal Design

Internal Design

The internal design of the Tin Type Primary has been beefed up around the mainshaft bearing with a structural web design unlike the original 1970’s inner, which is prone for breaking. Modern fine tooth chain tensioner setup ensures quiet operation along with maintaining proper chain adjustment. Keeping your primary chain lubricated is a chain oiler fitting positioned just above and rearward of the adjuster. We added O-Ring counter bore pockets around the stud holes. These O-Rings provide a leak-free sealing solution over the old silicone trick. Provided with the TTP are self-locking flanged nuts for a proper squish of the O-Rings, worry free setup.

Primary Drive Configuration Options:

  • 24 tooth motor sprocket, 37 tooth clutch sprocket, and stock 82 pitch primary chain (PN 40007-36B), for a 1.54 primary ratio.
  • 24 tooth motor sprocket is maximum size that fits within the TTP envelope
  • 22 tooth motor sprocket, 35 tooth clutch sprocket, and 80 pitch primary chain (available through BAKER) for a 1.59 primary reduction. 35 tooth clutch sprocket available with BAKER splined Shovel clutch.
  • 23 tooth motor sprocket, 38 tooth clutch sprocket, and stock 82 pitch primary chain (PN 40007-36B) for a 1.65 reduction. 38 tooth clutch sprocket available with BAKER splined Shovel clutch.

BAKER Highly Recommends

The use of a Harley ‘H-D’ 1.4kw starter for proper operation. If you are running the stock Shovelhead clutch double check the ring gear for wear. These were a 3-piece design that were riveted together and were prone for ring getting worn on the inside. Replace with a 1-piece ring gear, weld on finding in your local distributor catalog.
