    Hmmm... should have hung onto the JPS, perhaps?

    Tony,

    Sweet looking GT380! Has the bike been sitting for a while? Just wondering if one of the cylinders is full of gas or oil and locking up the engine on you? There should be three small drain bolts on the front of the crankcase under the front motor mount. Pull those off and see if you get a lot of fluid pouring out. Same with the spark plugs although I would think that would pour out the chambers if it was in the top of the cylinder.

    Cool wheels on the GT. What are they from and can you get more?

    Jim

    yeah ive tried all the usual tricks, im pretty sure its the crank.
    i think the wheels are C.M.A , a 1970's aftermarket wheel.

    So do you think a crank bearing seized? Did the oil pump fail? Isn't there a nylon gear on the points cam? Could that have come apart and locked up the motor? Seems a shame to break it as it is a good looking bike. Hope you fix it but if not, please let me know if you are going to sell the wheels.
