I've posted up int the 'Parts wanted' section, but I don't hold out much hope that anyone will have one of these kicking about. I appear to have mislaid the half-moon shaped plate that retains the auxiliary shaft (part no 4129789, referred to as 'Plate, bearing' in my Beta parts manual). It will probably turn up when the engine has been fully rebuilt (i.e several years from now).

If anyone has access to this part and can measure the thickness of steel plate that it is stamped out of, that would be very helpful, as I'm pretty sure I will need to fabricate a copy to get the engine build moving along. I've checked in all the places where I squirrel parts away and it's not in any of them. This is what happens when an engine refurb takes an extended period of time, of course...

Thanks to peteracs of this parish, a NOS item has been found and purchased, so this is no longer an issue. When the part arrives I'll post up dimensions, just in case this happens to someone else.

Scratch the DIY suggestion. It wouldn't be the easiest part to try and copy. It's made from 4mm sheet steel and has two x 6.5mm and two x 7mm holes drilled in it. And the inner dimension of the U-section that locates in the auxiliary shaft is 37mm at its widest point. It appears to be untreated steel with no coating, so I'll probably get it plated with some other parts before fitting.

Can't imagine they get lost all that often, I would probably have one of you hadn't found one on eBay

No, guess not. It was simply me not being organised enough when stripping the engine. And paying the price for my lack of thought.

I'm also in the middle of stripping a motorcycle engine at present (a Yamaha RD350LC), and I've been religiously bagging items in resealable freezer bags of various sizes as I dismantle various sections of the engine. It does help that bike engines and components are much smaller than car engines, of course. A complete bike (wet) clutch will comfortably fit inside a medium size freezer bag. But bagging parts up as you go does seem to be a good idea to me.
