Finished tweeking #332 today so moving on to the next one.
This will be a deep clean just like the 1st one. I already know the motor needs a rebuild as it was puarchased with no compression.
If the odometer is correct, & the bike does look like it's fairly low on miles, the owner didn't get much fun out of this one.
I wonn't post as often on this one as it's pretty straight forward & the result should be a nice rider.
The 1st pic's are where this project is getting started. I Canibilized this bike for the YZ swing arm setup for project #1.
Pulled motor & stuffed it back in the corner.
It looks like it got good & hot before it quit & got stuffed in a barn for me to find 40 yr's later....$250.00...
WOW ! I've been waiting for an evening like this one. Away from the honey do list for a minute.
Of course I had a little extra motivation. Get the cylinder boxed up for shipping to Enduronut.
That meant turning some wrenches...My 1st go at using an air rattle gun to remove the cyl. nuts.
I do believe it's the way to do it from now on.. Anyway a perfect evening...
Gosh, be careful with a rattle gun as think they're alloy long nuts so best use a single hex impact socket rather than double hex normal socket or might jangle the hex off the nut & then you'll be in trouble. Anyway--my rattle gun is a chinese useless one & gives up easy, or my compressor is below par!!. Good old bikes though & had a burnt out one years ago but that's another story. Interesting how wide the squish band is in the cylinder head. Maybe i'm reading the pic wrong but looks super wide with a little bit up in the middle if the piston is following 'that' shape closely--maybe not.
