Hey guys, been a while, but not much has happened up until late. Here's what I have been up to:

Just today I removed the cylinder block from the crank case as it was kinda...stuck on. The pistons are going to be replaced, and the actual cylinders will be cleaned and machined out, I just need to find a place that will do it for me.


During the process of removing the block, which was quite difficult, the gasket seat(?) was damaged by my tools. I took some pics.







So. I was wondering if I could get the seat machined down a bit so that the gasket will fit in nice and smooth? Or should I just get a new block off ebay?

Oh yeah, and I was goofing off with the camera again.



So yeah, a bunch of parts on the way, all i need now is a new gasket set, battery, and exhaust pipes, then she should be ready to fire up!

I'll take a vid of that for sure.

Till next time!

you'll need yamabond to put it together anyway, that was the balck gasket he was scraping off. Those gouges are probably going to have to be refinished. ask your machinist about decking the cylinder block (should take it out).

Just make sure the gouges are flat, that they don't stick up. Yamabond the crap out of it when putting it back together.

Nice wife-beater-T. You been working out? lol...

Google'd Yamabond. Stuff looks interesting, that's for certain. Should I maybe try sanding/grinding/polishing down those blemishes my self, or just leave it up to the pros?

Unga: Yeah, it was like 30* Celcius with 90% humidity that day. No sun though... But check out those pipes!:D

What's that blue wonder shit, Hylomar? A lot of guys prefer that over anything. I wouldn't bother machining those gouges, just like he said, be sure they're flat.
