Thanks for that direction Foggo, I'll grab a can myself next time I'm in the big windy city [Canberra]
That sounds like a balltearer of a yarn with those six brothers, they should put it together in a book!!
Cheers

Righto, I've spent the last few months kickin rocks around so now its time to get into it and start to put Kermits engine back together.

First thing, knock an engine crank case stand up.



Wash out RHS crankcase with hot soapy water and get all the bead blasting grit out. Then blow off with air and blow out all the holes and check all the threads.

I have never bought all genuine parts before for a rebuild. $1500 spent so far. gaskets, bearings, timing chains, valves. Wossner piston bringing the bore back to 650cc from 680.

Right, time to get this RHS crank bearing in, Put the bearing into the freezer for 30 mins and heat the case up until hot with a heat gun.



Pull the bearing out of the freezer and place in the case and presto, slid straight in, like a finger in a bum.



Make sure all internal bolts and screws are loctited in, you don't need any loose bolts inside there.

I have put many cases together in the past, but dont be a hero and try to do it with out a service manual and a parts book. There are just to many little washes and spacers to put in the wrong spot. Plenty of places on the net to download a parts book.



Better not forget to put the oil screen in, I think I'm gunna need it for the next longest day ride.

Lets get this crank and balance weight cleaned up and fitted.
An atomizing gun full of petrol does the trick and the CRC Softseal comes straight off.



Timing the crank to the balance shaft.

Time to get this transmission apart and clean and inspect it and re assemble with new bearings and circlips.

Totally agree with that, had people say to me why are you looking at the book, you have done it so many times but there are always little things like a bolt tension or something that needs to be exact and you can't remember everything.
