Almost finished

Just about finished up my stator repair. Yesterday I was able to mate up the motor to the frame. Now I just need to order some bolts that I lost. I have a few questions, one being the little pin that goes in the bevel gear, does it go in an special way? Also what are the order of the bolts for the bevel gear, and their tq specs? What was the fix for the coolant tank? I have done the manual cam chain and I haven't fully adjusted the that side so I am having a hard time getting that put in. Any tips would surely help.


Here's a little pic before we put the motor back in.

Ha its ok I already have a two year old... I don't want a second one... Plus the motor wasn't that bad... I think it was worse putting it on my work bench. Yea those are real tress, I live in the woods which is why I'm rushing to get the bike up and running for the fall.

Dang, I want you around to do my heavy lifting!!
I think Roach just posted a video where he weighed the engine dry at 150 lb.

Q. 1. .....the little pin that goes in the bevel gear, does it go in an special way?
A. You are asking about the locating pins on the mating surfaces I assume. (There are two pins, one at 10 O`clock and one at 4 O`clock.) I have not worked on a motorcycle engine, but in my experience with a small block Chevy, the locating pin or dowels should fit in either way. Test fit them into both parts to be sure.

Q. 2. Also what are the order of the bolts for the bevel gear, and their tq specs?
A. Look at the bevel gear housing to see which holes you think need the longest bolts and drop them in. When all 7 bolts are dropped in their proper holes, they should stick out the back by the same amount. If you have one bolt that does not extend far enough and another that is too long, swap them around.

Remember to use blue thread locker on them.

Also next time you pull an engine apart, get a piece of cardboard and punch some holes in the pattern of the part you are removing, and put the bolts in the order they come off. Makes for easier reassembly.

Torque specs for the front bevel gear housing bolts is 8.5 ft/lb, (or 102 in/lb).

Q.3. What was the fix for the coolant tank? I have done the manual cam chain and I haven't fully adjusted the that side so I am having a hard time getting that put in. Any tips would surely help.

A. I think someone put a couple of washers in there on the mounting bolt so the coolant tank sits out a bit from the frame.

Hope this helps.

I'm not referring to the the locating pins... there was a tiny round metal thing with groves on either side and goes in the hole towards the outside of the bevel gear where the shift cable connects on the opposite side.

Look in the parts catalog under clutch for the pin (I'm not sure whether you're talking about the longer one the cable lever attaches to, or the shorter one that actuates the clutch rod), and under front bevel gear for the bolts.

Its, according to roach's video, he called it a rack for the rack and pinion. He brings it up about about 8:55 in his last video. Unable to find it at all in the parts catalog.

For the resivoir spacing I used bolts not washers. Oversized bolts move you out quicker. It would take quite a few washers! lol

No help on the pin. I can't watch the video at work.
