That thing is covered with elbow grease !!!
I got a flexible shaft with a buffer wheel setup on the drillpress
The exhaust valves and guides were replaced as well as intake guides. Seats were good all around.
Heading down to Victoria this weekend for the 'Spaghetti' rally,
run by the Moto Guzzi Club of Victoria, @ Edi Cutting campgrounds,
Sneaking in on 'White Beast' to perve on the fine machinery there, :eek1
and catch up with old mates for a drink or three
photos next week, maybe
What do you have in the Hudson?
where we at then?
Just about to remove engine alltogether for lower end inspection and cleaning, hopefully not too much rebuilding!
Wiring harness soon to follow. The frame is probably gonna get repainted...
And the tank & toolbox....
Is that where they hide the fuse rack, inside the headlight! man I am scared to look in there:eek1
The fuse panel turned out very stout. No big deal. Well marked.
This is a chrome cylinder with 49,000 miles on it. When is this going to fail????
Nice shot there, did you notice that my bike is a right hand shifter?
That floppy, sloppy left shifter is an ornate transfer from the right side.
Dissembling the shifter, footboard and kixtand will be an adventure. The exhaust was a PITA!
Because of all the other bits. And it had become one with itself!
How many miles on your bike?
At 50,000 miles, I'm just gonna take it all down to inspection. The seals are shot and thus a messy rear drive.
The OIL was clean so I'm thinking the gear train is ok.
But she's a dirty girl.
So I pulled off this greasy bitch to day.
The drive came off the shaft housing and there was 90wt that dribbled out. Not much and clean. Splines looked great and the whole thing spun smooth and tight.
I'm parts cleansing now.
Should there be lube in the drive shaft area? I somehow had the impression that the drive shaft assembly was "dry", unlike the BMW assembly. Or is this a seal issue. I'm going to replace seals, but hope to NOT crack the assembly open.
And what's that little finned reservoir doing under the unit? I can't find it listed in the tavola ....
What should I be checking for?
No seal at fwd end of rear gears. Some lube invariably makes its way fwd
I'm usually paranoid about NOT having lube in that area. What is an inspection routine for this thing? Recommended service at 50,000 miles?
