Larry,

Its for a TZ350. The cover I use is a 400 but the pushrod is a 350. I think the part that bolts into the cover is the same between both models. Let me know how much you want for it.

Thanks, Chris Marshall

Chris-
I thought I could just lay my hands on it but I'll have to look a bit harder. I am in NYC until Monday and I'll check then and get back to you.

How do you seize a four stroke?
Ok...yeah it can be done...but usually requires a major maladjustment or assembly problem. I've never had it happen except on a lawn mower engine. Who ever bored the cylinder...or jetted the carb...fire them :)

to make a long story short, it seized. I was probably over-revving on that long straight at VIR. And it was hot. and the Piston is ROUND. (Wiseco sucks) We added another .002 clearance. Was originally at .0025. Live and learn I think I am the first in history to seize a four stroke. rebuilt, with degreed in cam, (it was out 8 degrees . . . it was probably running way lean too)and flat slide 38mm. I started it on Saturday . . . awesome.

Still in need of an RD400 clutch rod. Anyone?

BTW, I seized my CB72 at Summit once, at the end of the straight. I was jetted lean, I may have been undergeared (should the needle point at 14?), and it was hot. Grabbed the clutch, so all was okay. By the tie it got back to the pits, it was unseized and I went out in the next raec. Cylinder didn't look as good as it could have, but it still ran!

4 strokes are not impossible to seize. I seized my 360 at the end of the back straight at Mosport. It freed up fairly easily and I ran it later that day. Scuffed the piston more than the bore. I also seized the BSA 250 at the same place. Destroyed that piston and messed the bore up pretty good too. I think the ignition pickup slipped in the cam.
