Winter rebuild project
So, I've got my winter project under way. Doing a full rebuild of the engine because I had to replace the balance dampers. Figured while I was at it, to change the old sty shift rod for the stronger one. And while I'm doing all that I figured a good cleaning of the heads, new oil seals, and possible valve lapping weren't a bad idea. Going to through in some new piston rings and a fresh cylinder honing in while I'm at it too.
Tear down started
It's amazing how easy it is to get the engine out of the frame when you can just lift the frame away
Case split open on the table
parts stashed on the bench
Started repainting a few of the engine parts.... Before:
Decided to try something differant with the he oil level sight lines.
......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.
