I haven't made much progress... decided I need to replace the gasket for the seal which hides the oil pump while I was in there. This decision forced me to pull the clutch back off. There's five bolts that hold the clutch plate on and can only be used once and I had to reorder them from the east coast for the second time.

The cylinders are being honed as we speak... hopefull get the clutch, tranny, and shaft drive on this weekend. Maybe the cylinder heads too.

It'll be done in about 5 years at this rate.

Cylinder heads got a glass bead blast treatment... no more oxidation.





Other than that, progress has been slow waiting on parts.

Waiting on parts.. ever heard of airhead salvage? web address is www.airheadsalvage.com He's convenient to me since it's close to Austin, but he's also got tons of parts and I know he's not afraid to ship 'em.

justa thought....

the heads (had them rebuilt and converted to unleaded by San Jose) and the transmission have been mounted. I need to take some pics, but this project is gaining some momentum again.

Thanks for the update mate, what does the conversion involve besides valve guides?

I think that's it... they call it a No-lead head conversion.

Hmmm ... you spoke of the oil pump seal a few posts ago. Please tell me you did the main seal as well ... It will fail if the bike has sat for a while. The old seals were nasty white things. The new ones will last forever.

That's what I went in for in the first place... there is nothing rubber that isn't being replaced... the only reason i missed the oil pump seal is i was not aware of it in the first place.

Matter of fact if you look at the disassembly pics, it quite obvious the rear seal was blown.

I've been wondering how it's coming along every time I drive by your office. Okay I admit, I mostly just think about your girlfriend's butt when I drive by, but......How's the project coming?

I'll be over that way tomorrow, finishing mine up.

oh good ... I'd hate to see you do all that and then find a leaking rear main. I just finished a rebuild of an R80G/S, with some modifications last year. Funny how I don't have the desire these days to get wrenching again ... :-)

The girlfriend project or the bike?

Seriously, there's been a lot of setbacks... suppliers sending the wrong parts and having to wait on the right parts being sent out. Of course we keep discovering stuff that needs to be replaced and I'm beginning to run out of money (girlfriend and 2 bikes will do it). Once we get the forks on and the final drive attached (next weekend?), it should be smooth sailing.

Glad to hear it's getting close. Mine should be done around noon tomorrow. You might see it on a short test ride around Alameda and Roosevelt.

The f**ing thing is running on one cylinder (probably pinched a wire or some shit putting it all together) so it'll sit in Tempe until Tuesday when I get back. I'll get it going then.
