question about ACCT

my acct's do not look like normal, I am wondering if it is possible that 1 of the previous owners turned the stock acct's into manual ones. they are the stock housings but have a bolt running through (and it sticks out about 1-1 1/2")with a stop nut on them also, and from what I have seen this is not what the acct's look like.

1) is it possible to change the acct's into manual cct's using the stock housings??
2) if 1 is a yes then why spend the $$ on the manual cct's?

the kid is at a friends for the night when she gets home I will TRY to post a pic of what they look like

You can't post a pic without the kid?

1. Yes. That is what Gypsy did, or something very close. Hers required welding. I'd like to see the pics. You have to have manly talent to build your own MCCTs. I'm not manly enough.

no I can't post a pic without the kid...because I like the real camera's that use film, she has a digital and I would need to first download the disc on this puter (something I haven't wanted to do b4...dont want my puter loaded down with pics.
but you say Gypsy did this? and welding? the outside are stock, the welding is for the bolt once it is put thru the housing then I would guess.

Is it possible to drill them out and put a 1/4" bolt thru it with two nuts, and just put a neoprene washer between the first nut and the housing to stop oil from leaking?
Just curious, cause the front one is bad on mine. I looked into the manual ones at tocmanufacturing.com but they are not available yet.

Since my bike is the beta tester for TOCManufacturing I can say leave the manual one there!
I played with the ACCT, doing the reset thingy and even replaced the springs with the beefier springs during a rebuild. I much prefer the manual ones.
Set em and forget em.
The actual housing for either are about the same, the 2 bolt base and if you do want to replace the manual ones with the ACCT you can with no problem.
In fact if you want to trade the manual one for an ACCT I'll trade ya!

One little tip for the MCCT. I placed a small strip of teflon tape between the MCCT body and the lock nut to stop the small drip of oil that tries to work it's way up the bolt thread.

Credit to gypsy for her modification but do you really want to trust your cam chains to a home weld?

well forget about the pic for now (she left the camera at her other house)
as for changing manuals for auto's that was not in my post, the ape cam chain tensioners and the stock acct's housings are only similar in that they both use 2 bolts, mine are the stock housings only difference is that the bolt runs through with a stop nut. I'll just yank them tomorrow to find out ( suppose to rain so no riding anyways)
and would I trust my cam chains to a home weld? if it was my weld then YES I WOULD

I mentioned the home weld because I saw the picture of gypsy's ACCT mod.
ummmm.. well it was NOT the cleanest weld I've seen, especially for one to be used for a cam chain tensioner.
Your expertise however is probably different *S*
