I sympathise with this completely

Everytime I do a patch fix on my engine because finance dictates it, instead of replacing everything I see that could maybe do with replacing, I live in this paranoid fear that the universe is gonna get me Sad but true

In the end it´s probably just a question of going with general consensus and relying on your own judgement and that of the people here and go with it, there´s some real experience based expertise floating around these parts of the interweb

Thanks for the torque values. Never imagined that I'd have to drop the engine down to remove the valve cover! Not exactly a one hour job...

You don't have to drop the engine down. You remove the carb and the carb intake boot and then the rocker cover slides back to where the carb was and out the right side.

You should have asked...

http://s1124.beta.photobucket.com/us...20Transmission

Countershaft

C1 (largest of the CS), is scored where it meets with C4 but the holes don't seem to be that worn. Small chip in one of the teeth.

C4 has a little wear in the bit where the fork sits and around the edges of the larger dogs but doesn't look too bad. Smaller dogs on other side are worn at the edges if they came from the factory at a cut stright (make 90 degrees)? I'm not sure though, I can't find a photo of a stock gear to really see if they are meant to be perfectly sharp edges...
Some light scorning on the faces of the dogs on both sides of C4

C5 teeth seem to be at a greater angle on the side it meets C2 than on the side it butts against C3. Again, I'm not sure if it is meant to be like this? There does seem to be a fair bit of scoring in the part where the fork sits, certainly more than is seen in C4.

Now C2 has very worn holes from the dogs of C5, as can be obviously seen in the photos. They aren't in the same shape as they meant to be and the edges are missing metal.

Mainshaft

M2 is one of the few gears that has clearly pitted teeth, one is very bad with three more that have a hole or two.

M5 teeth seem ok, but the holes where the dogs engage seem to worn a little (like was seen in C2).

Rest of mainshaft seems ok

Shift Forks

Now this might be where the metal is coming from? All three of the shift forks are shiny and worn where they contact the different gears (as can bee seen in the photos). Is this normal? If so, I have no idea where the metal is coming from!

Thanks,

John
