I don't do this stuff for entertainment.



I'm waiting for parts to begin in earnest.



Once they arrive there'll be a flurry of productive activity.

Till then....

Lornce- I appreciate the advice you gave to me in my top end thread, so I will pass some on to you. In conversation w/ Randy Long he mentioned that a good cure for an oil burning airhead are the Deves "gapless" oil control rings. I will be using them in my rebuild, and you should consider doing the same. Or are you going to use your VW bus rings?

To be honest I can't remember what kind of rings I used on the 1050 top ends. Not 100% certain, but I think they're domestic V8 parts.

I've found that well fitted pistons rings with the appropriate end gap and *three piece oil rings* is all that's required to eliminate oil consumption in a healthy top end. I'll guess the gapless variety may mask oil burning in worn bores?

Gapless = 3 or 4 piece rings
No place for the oil to squeak by, and will follow a less than perfect bore better than a stock ring.

Never work on your bike on an empty stomach.

If you're in Hamilton, you meet your freinds at the West Town for the best breakfast in the city.

Joe, Steve and Leon enjoy one of Kenny's stories over coffee.

Leon, Kenny, Joe and Steve prepare for a productive day in Bino's garage.

Bino's '78 R100/7 has it's motor on the bench awaiting Ken and Leon's attention while Steve gets set to break the GSPD into bite size chunks.

I'm still not sure what Joe did all day.

Steve waves a hammer and exhaust nut wrench at the GS/PD while I attempt to capture a pic that represents a flury of productive activity.

It didn't quite work out...

That's Bino and Ken in the background deciding how best to attack Bino's R100/7 lump. ("lump" is British idiom for motor).

Oh yeah, this was an international occasion with Joe, Ken and Leon joining us from NY while Steve came along from Deetroit City.

Just to recap, and so what you're about to see makes sense...

The bike's getting an engine overhaul because it drank too much mud during this incident last July:

Viewer discretion advised.

Not sure if it's obvious, but this view of the bottom of the airbox looks like a New Orleans city street after the flood waters receaded.

There's about 1/8" of silt left after the water evaporated.

Below the airbox things looked even worse.

There's even a little evidence of some mouse habitation in there.
