Would save you from having to buy another bike or a motor and would be a learning experience for ya..so watcha think? pull the motor, clear a spot on the bench, or build a motor buildin bench and lets do it!
Best idea yet. Thats a great bike for its intended purpose and should last forever after a rebuild. Not really a difficult/expensive job with just a little help. And the sense of accomplishment would be worth something. The fear factor is really unwarranted. Go for it!

as long as you can get any needed hard parts Gus, Id split the cases and fix it up.

if you get another engine your out the $$ for the engine, plus the same labor to remove and reinstall, and you have an unknown engine in there now.

Id run what ya brung.

as I said though, I am assuming that the gears, forks, shafts are still available.

im assuming the gaskets, seals and bearings are still easy to find.

parts fiche shows most parts still available,
but of course its the one tiny $7 part that he will need that is UNavailable.

If it were mine it would already be in pieces on the floor, but I like to take stuff apart.

you cant break it any worse really Gus.

See, that is where you guys don't know me very well. he he he
Will have to get the rest of my tools up here.

What is sad is the engine needs nothing, it runs like a champ and the tranny is great except for this one small problem that has cropped up....

unless you can convert to E start, that would be the only reason Id swap engines.

Don't know when they went 12 volt but prolly no E start until 12 V I would think.

I already had 2 shims fall just getting the side cover off and now I have to time the points gears also & I have seen no marks. Rut Row...

Nothing happening tonight anyway.

I don't abuse the bike just cause & even more due to it's age. Gripes me it broke anyway.

I dunno Gus, e-start would benefit you a lot given your ride to kick starting injury ratio...just saying

at that point it woudl be easy enough to convert to 12v us

the 6volt starter would likely run at 12V, and the rest of the bulbs could be swapped.

that certainly wouldnt stop me.

but, the simplest thing would be to split the cases, find the part that bent up and hung in the gearbox and slap it all back together.
