...that I didn't throw it out the window on the way to the skatepark.
2 hours turned to 6.
I guess I should be thankful I have many engines to pull parts from.....
Two problems right away.
One caused about 2-3 more hours of work.....
Yet another problem...
This is the part I wish I could have used. This is the bottom end I used.
Surfaces clean, no cracks in the case. Gasket surfaces decent.
I didn't want to switch out the shifter for mechanism but.... Transmission looked good.
This was the problem.
Time to pull, clean, and swap a different top case......
Gasket surfaces cut, sudzed, final clean.
Re-installed in the new case.
The cleaned and ready top with the ready to go bottom.
A lot happened after this.
Reading the manual.
Feeling of chopped guts.
And magically it went back together.
This was one of the biggest struggles and I have nothing to show for it.
New cam chain.
Everything is almost ready....
New race clutch springs.
A little more push....
Ready for the top end.
