    The other thing about the filter is you don't know how long ago it was changed (or cleaned if I remember the old TT/TTrs correctly), that metal could have been there since break in.

    I really appreciate all the input. And after sleeping on it a little I decided to go head and check the clutch. So I pulled the clutch cover and the clutch plates were stuck together. However they appear to be in good shape. All the gears I can see appear to be in really good shape even the plastic one in there. So I bet the metal shavings are from Turning it over and there aren't that many in there. You all are right, I have this tendency to think the worst at times. I am glad I decided to pull the clutch cover because there was water in the oil. That's one more gasket I will need to buy but it was worth it. I'm gonna order the gasket soak the clutch plates in a zip lock bag with some oil and button it all back up. I ordered a service manual so I know how to set the timing and a head gasket. I think I'm gonna go ahead and order the other gasket and go by the dealer and get a filter and some oil. 20190102_004401.jpg
    Here is a pic of the water that was mixed in. This thing must have sat under the eve of that house for a long time. There wasn't that much of it and I bet some water crept past the rings and that's how it got in. 20190102_010635.jpg
    My wife was a little upset that I was doing this in the kitchen. But it was cold outside. And it was already sitting on the shelf. So why not. 154646670192547059622.jpg

    Never hurts to check! So good job on that! Also, my 1970 CL100 Honda had sat around for a loooong time, and its clutch plates had also completely stuck together. I freed them, coated them with oil and they are fine now. I had it running but couldn’t get it into gear as even tho the clutch would compress, the steel parts wouldn’t release from the fiber parts.

    You got a pic of that CL ? I love those old bikes. And my friction plates seem to be just fine they were just stuck from sitting. I figured they might be and also thought I might as well check while i have the motor out and am waiting on parts. Glad I did.

    It wasn’t my original thread, and I think I jump in about page 3, but that’s kind of the saga. It was really messed up with a cracked case, a stripped drain plug and a bunch of really ham handed things done to it. I’ve ended up with a parts bike, and an extra engine... I love the color and really can’t decide whether to sell or keep. I’d actually like to get rid of all the extras and keep I think... but will see what someone might offer me.

    I wanted the back tire put on the swing arm and the frame last night but the rust was taunting me. Plus I have to rebuild the rear brake. There is some surface rust on some of the spokes so I think I'm gonna knock that off then paint the hub and rim. But I don't know what color. I want to use some stuff I already have laying around. And the only color that sticks out to me is gold. I always liked blue body with gold rims on the old Subaru but this ain't no Subaru. I guess I'll figure it out. I took the rear sprocket off the hub and this is what it looked like. 20190103_005521.jpg this is after I got a hold of it. 20190104_001612.jpg
    I also took apart the rear brake assembly and cleaned it really well. 20190102_232242.jpg 1546584961834322457661.jpg

    I also really wanted to keep the petcock valve. Because I really like the knob. I found petcock filters for an xs650 and another older Yamaha. I wonder if they will work? I am also gonna need a new o ring . This one was non existent. Even after soaking for twenty four solid hours in pinesol I still couldn't blow air through it it was totally blocked. I took it apart completely and this is what I got out of it. 20190104_003652.jpg It smells like old rotten gas and has a texture that's a mix between clay and rubber. Weird . 20190104_003640_001.jpg 20190104_003646.jpg it's also raining pretty heavy here so I had the privilege of riding home in the rain tonight. My rain jacket is fine but my pants are busted so my boots always get wet and the cover they gave for this backpack is a joke. This year I am gonna buy a fully waterproof rolltop backpack for sure. Either way this bike sitting upside down is a perfect drying rack 20190103_235735.jpg

    Your fixing all that stuff and making it look purdy has inspired me to most likely keep the Honda! Took my ad down lol. Anyway, keep updating your thread, I’m enjoying it.

    You might try boiling the fuel switch parts, without the plastic or rubber on them of course, in PineSol or simple green. I use simple green and boil carbs in it and works really well. Usually a ratio of 50/50 to water seems to be good.

    Thanks for the advice. I will try that as soon as I get off work and get home tonight. I found a rebuild kit for the petcock valve on Amazon or something last night. I am gonna order it soon and rebuild this thing. I still can't decide on what to do with the rim and hub

    Well I didn't think I had a picture of the before and after for the starter on the bike but it turns out I do. There was red mississippi mud and dirt caked all over it between the motor and the starter. The stew that held the wore in place was also rusted to the point of no return. I sprayed some wd40 all over it and let it sit . When I placed the screwdriver in the screw and turned it the points turned to dust. 20190102_002640.jpg 20190102_002712.jpg
    I thought about going to the dealer to get this screw but they usually charge at least a dollar or two. Plus I have this Folgers coffee can full of a bunch of old screw from here there and everywhere. So I dug through it to see if I could locate one of a similar diameter and thread pattern. I found one that's just a little longer and a little wider on top but it fits. 20190103_010639.jpg
    I also found tgis little bag full of tattoo machine parts I thought I lost two years or so ago. I found them. So at least they aren't lost anymore. 20190103_010754.jpg

    I also got the starter cleaned up quite nicely. 20190103_020407.jpg

    And I think I decided to paint the rims. If I knock the rust off it is going to effect the chrome finish. I have this nifty app on the i-pad. So took a screenshot of a ttr225 from Google then one of a yz with gold rims and colored the rims on the ttr using this neat feature where I can mimic any color on the screen. I think I like it. 20190104_172958.jpg

    Well I had to take a break for a bit. I was waiting on parts to come in the mail. I was out of town while they came. But I'm back and got white a bit done. 20190116_164059.jpg
    A little before of all the carbon buildup . I scraped a ton of it off. 20190116_170447.jpg
    I also got the head cleaned up a bit. 20190116_171059.jpg 20190116_213958.jpg

    I got the gaskets needed to button it all up and finish the job. I hope. I have been soaking the clutch plates in oil as I waited on the gaskets to arrive. 20190116_230200.jpg so I cleaned up the timing cover or stator cover whatever it's called. (Someone help me out here) 20190116_214305.jpg

    Much better. There is a lot of paint missing off of this cover and the other one. But I decided to just leave it. I'm probably gonna make it worse when I ride it through all this mississippi mud anyway. 20190116_230940.jpg plates back in the clutch basket. 20190116_230129.jpg 20190117_005136.jpg

    I set out with a goal in mind. And that was to have the motor in the frame before I went to sleep. But getting the timing chain to cooperate as I slipped the head on was beyond frustrating. I would get it timed and bolted down a little. Then turn the but that turns the crankshaft and the chain would slip. I had to take the head of two or three times before I got it right. 20190117_010650.jpg 20190117_020559.jpg 20190117_024349.jpg 20190117_024401.jpg
