The parts bike that keeps on giving

Found a broken bit inside case cover, pulled same cover off parts motor and it's all good...
Got the new high output stator installed, now am learning about the joys of cleaning off 30+ year old gasket.

I went bowling tonight

And I sucked it up bad. But before the lanes I pulled the clutch cover off the xl600r and think this may be the source of the massive oil leak. The bolts were barely finger tight and the gasket was rough at best... We'll see!

Supa Bastard

You can go far with a little CG, blood packets, and shooting on location.

The crankshaft is in the mail

Let's see what the good people at Manitowoc Motor Machining can do with it.

Meanwhile, more time wasting.

It's on

For a long time I have been dragging ass on this T500 build.  Afraid of what I might find inside these cases.  The T500 '72 and earlier has a design flaw that doesn't bathe the transmission in enough oil and leads to slow but certain destruction.  The flaw is easily addressed with a beer can and some JB Weld IF it's not already too late.  Spare transmissions are made out of a rare element known as unobtainium, so splitting the cases was a moment of truth and determined whether the project would go forward or not.  Well good news, this tranny is in great shape and ready for the beer can mod.  This makes me smile from ear to ear.
