The Journey Continues..............

Well I starting receiving the parts I need to bring this Beast back to life.
The pistons didn't make it today, Maybe tomorrow.




They cleaned up pretty good








I got the ACCT springs in today also. Already got them put in.
Used a key I made out of a key used to open the containers
to change the towels/toilet paper in restrooms



Here is the Clutch holding tool I am making.
Now just need to figure out what to use as a Handle






Also got the Mechanical Seal & put it in today.
Waiting for the tube of 1194 to show up.
Then I'll be able to put the cases back together
.

Zoinks! Perchance, while you have the cyl heads off, have you reseated the valves? Never a bad idea to get that taken care of while they're seeing the light of day.

Also, check your pms - I responded about the pushrod, etc.

For a handle could you replace two adjacent bolts with longer ones to hold a piece of strap steel to the outside edge? Just thinking outloud. Hoss

That's why I used nuts & bolts instead of welding it. I wanted to be able to install/uninstall the handle until I get the right one fitted. Has to be strong enough not to bend when your torqueing down the Big Nut.

That was diagnosis and engine break-down.
This one is Parts replacment, Timing, & Rebuilding.
If one thread gets too long it's hard to get caught up on if your somebody who steps in to the Middle of it.
So if I break it up into sections it makes it easier, Only going through 5 or 6 pages instead of 10+ Pages.

Yes, I think there are folks here that would get sleepy reading 10 pages.


I just thought it be nice to have the whole "Journey" in one easy to find thread. (posts are dated and it not illegal to skip ahead or start from the end)

Perhaps when you get to "The Journey Ends" the admins can sticky them all together in the Verses .

Idea #2. Use two fairly long straps that attach one bolt closer on the circumference, than exactly opposite sides of the circle, and meet out a foot or so in the shape of a V. Drill a hole through the straps at that point and bolt them together to form a sturdier handle.

Does that word picture make sense to anyone else? If the straps were attached exactly opposite they would be parallel instead if intersecting.

Well the 1194 came in today. And I got the case together.
Still waiting for a box full of stuff from Cheap Cycles.
They said it was shipping out today, so maybe by Thurs or Fri.

So until then just cleaning and getting stuff ready. Oh and trying
to get a few more items I need to finish the engine.














Had a borrow 5 Bolts from this cover. I was missing the 5 that holds the
bottom of the case together. These were the same so when I get
5 more I'll replace them
