I'm eagerly awaiting my Harley compensator repair kit from Phil Bleazey. Luckily I was first on the list and it's been shipped UPS International to me here in Ohio USA. Phil packed it up on Thursday or Friday and according to the trace I should get it on Monday. Really quick service. I've talked to the motorcycle shop here in town that's done some other work for me and as soon as he can clear out some space in his shop he can get to work on my car. He's very familiar with the S & S engine and the compensator as he does a lot of Harley work.

Here's the parts I'm getting from Phil

Bleazey Cush Drive: £1715.18
Bleazey counter-shaft: £447.46
clutch friction plate: £132.60
counter shaft bearing: £95.20
A new spigot bearing: £15.00
rubbers: £92.00 per set of four (you of course get one set with the cush drive kit anyway). I'm getting a spare set.

Bleazey cushdrive complete with shaft and bearing retainer sleeve - this gives you all of my modifications plus modified driving faces to give smoother take up and positive retention of the counter shaft bearing.

A replacement clutch friction plate - highly recommended - mine has slightly heavier springs than the Morgan version and this is where I see most failures.

A new spigot bearing
Possibly a new counter shaft bearing depending on the condition of the old one. The advantage of my new one is that it is rubber sealed and doesn't throw out the grease like the steel-shielded original.

You may want a spare set of rubber inserts for peace of mind - but no one has destroyed a set yet so I can't give you any idea of life expectancy.

These prices are inclusive of shipping and insurance to the States. $ 3,555 USD

fyi, there's nothing Harley about the Centa compensator or Phil's modifications to it.

That’s because this is not a compensator fix. It’s a Centa Drive upgrade.

Phil Bleazey now offers two types of upgrade, a Centa drive modification and his own Bleazey Cush Drive.
His own Bleazey Cush Drive is ideal for those who want to upgrade from the original Harley Cush Drive as you don't need to buy a Centa Drive and do the Bleazey modifications to it.

All the details are on his web site.

The Centa's function is exactly the same as Harley's so-called compensator (stupid name if you ask me) and replaces it.

Thanks, that wasn't clear to me before.

I just had the Bleazey Cush Drive fitted and drove it back from Phil’s only 9 days ago. It is so much better than the standard Centa Drive that was already there. In fact hardly comparable!

Well I've got a 2012 with a Harley compensator. Phil's new kit replaces the Harley compensator with an updated Centa like unit.

I just got the parts. Only 3 days shipment from the UK. The motorcycle shop that does my work is jammed up so I don't know when he'll get around to working on the Mog but I'll keep ya'll posted as the work commences.

Phil has been wonderful in answering my questions and sending pictures that will help with the installation. I've been watching his videos and have seen the incredible amount of time and engineering he put into the replacement drive kits. What an asset to the Morgan 3 Wheeler community !

Don't forget you need to either machine the existing 3 bolt rotor to fit the centre shaft or purchase a new 6 hole rotor from MMC....
