    Timing

    If you checked the timing to the marks you made, it should line up. Question is, how accurately can visual find the tdc. I would bet within a few degrees which is ok for a stock motor.
  4. When you take the plate to the DMV, do not let it out if your hands. I gave my plate to the teller because she had to take it to the back for someone to look at. She then cut it in half because my 66 was supposed to have a blue and yellow plate, she said. I freaked and then she said, sorry my mistake. Well, nkw it doesn't meet our integrity requirements...

  5. I hear you all on this topic, but with the long rural roads, road speeds and knuckle heads in big diesel 4x4 trucks where I live... Stock speeds are not compatible. I am sure others are in the same situation, go faster or stay in the neighborhood only...
  6. I test with a 9v battery (smoke detector kind) super light and simple and not enough current to ruin anything. I would bet that the green wire in the headset is shorted somewhere so it is disconnected. The new green jumper in the junction box goes direct to the coil from the wire to the stator. So, the green in the headset/harness isn't connected to anything...
  7. I am pretty sure that is one of Eric's pictures... At least he is being consistent, although I would bet also correct!
  8. Kieran - if you are going to leave it on the shelf, put 2 stroke in it and rotate it around every couple of months and keep in a dry place. Do not use wd40 as the amount of oil left behind is not enough to protect against rust, especially after the solvent of the wd40 cleans it.
  9. Cheapo moto ones work great... Letting soapy water sit on it also is great unless it is already rusted together...
  10. That is a 175 motor... I know the 62's had the /2 designation, I am not sure of the newer 175's...
  11. Sleeve retainer/adhesives are made to bond perfectly fitting parts together. As a rule, they are too brittle to fill gaps where they will be subjected to shock from mismatched parts. I am curious as to how long it will hold up!
  12. If you try to reshape it, make sure to place a mandrel inside so it stays round... I would be hesitant to alter the material properties too much by heating. I would add material by welding and then shape round again which obviously is a difficult cut to make. Welding the cup will probably distort the cup and lead to it cracking...

    scoot.net

    I wish there was a better way to get rid of the spamming that goes on with scoot.net...
  14. Still sick to my stomach over this. A true loss to his family and ours...
