Getting closer, and closer, and closer...

Pokeyman? MistaVern? LeeKellerKing?

Got an E-mail from Charlie Mullendore last week.

I may have an engine soon

Raj's videos and my band performances are the only things that have kept

me sane since June.

Lets get this thread going again.
Only ignition bits (dist. springs, points, cond., plug wires) to do yet. The original plan was to have the o.e. cylinders replated, but since I decided to sell my '75 Eldo project, the pair of 88mm Gilardoni kits (already turned to drop in the Eldo case) I had in stock went on Doug's engine. The con-rod journal of the crank needed to be turned due to deep scoring, the cam was worn more on some lobes than others so was replaced. Oil pump gears were scored/galled (replaced with one form the parted-out '70 Ambo), rocker shafts and rocker tips worn (replaced with Tonti rockers to work with the 88mm kits). Flywheel had excessive wear and was replaced, pressure plate was warped so replaced... On and on and on...

Dang, Charlie, that is really getting there.
Let me know a little before it's done so I can schedule a Tuesday PM run.
Want to catch the Rohrersville Band rehearsal as well.

Spoke to Charlie today.
I'll p/u the engine next Tuesday.
Can't wait.

Raj, Are you still interested in my Wixom fairing?
Let me know so I don't sell it out from under your nose.

ah hell man!

I think we missed the window on that one. I mean, I'd love to have it - but I got bigger fish to fry

If you've got another buyer, you've got my blessing.

Good luck with the motor plop

Some might call this progress:





The left cylinder was fucked, but a friend of the marque in Australia sent me a good cylinder and matching piston. When I opened the box, he had included a tasty Australian canned beer inside the cylinder, inside a coozie from his local watering hole, all wrapped in bubble wrap. How cool is that!

The exhaust valve seats were corroded too, and I am hauling the heads over to the machine shop this am.

Progress, no pics right now. Holiday stuff, ya know?

Trans is in. Rear brake light switch is mounted. Centerstand and swingarm

are next along with brake/shift linkages. Then forks/wheels etc.

BTW, I think I need a different shift linkage to make the peg set up work.

The one I have seems to be proprietory for the "Triple A" foot boards. Got

one laying around?

You need the shaft from the pedal to the trans.? I don't have any for the five-speed only the four-speed. Maybe check with Mark @ Moto Guzzi Classics?
