Well I thought I should update this little project. (or make clear that Simon is doing his on his thread and I am doing mine here).

I pulled the bike apart and have discovered a few areas of concern , primarily the right case. I believe that the kickstarter mechanism has given way for some reason or another and a small fragment has done a bit of damage inside the case. It has ground into several parts of the case and although mostly cosmetic there is a grind near the crank seal, (put in the wrong way) .

When taking the other side off just discovering bits missing, Woodruff key , screw to hold in magneto base. Just a couple of things but still you would think you wouldn't leave these bits out. Both crank seals were in great shape so I have a theory that the engine was re-done and putting back together the PO may have misplaced bits and pieces.
Fortunately I have sourced new cases for the bike (thanks Sluggish ) and am going to transfer all the internals from A to B. The cranks, Piston ,etc.. are in great shape so hopefully this should make for a great engine.

I have a fair bit of stuff going up to the Hydro blaster recently, Forks, Cylinder, new cases, Steering head,. I had a bit of stuff welded by a guy up in Ferntree Gully who has done a great job. Recommend .


I've got both hubs at powder coaters so will need to rebuild these. I think I will do them myself, with the very watchful eye of Short's, ( Harrow transport)
 
Gathering new bits and pieces, need to sort forks, new spring s and emulators. Rear shock, will need to do same as I did with the 250 otherwise unrideable. I'm having a ball running around , spending money, drinking beer in my shed, listening to music etc....

One Question though, rear wheel is 17", what are your thought s on putting a 18" rim on. Will it work.

.... Only if you fit an 18" tyre to it, a 17" item would take some work to fit !!

Scotty's IT465 rolling chassis had an 18" wheel with a pretty big tyre fitted... So yes.

Cheers,

Dave R.

Thanks Dave, 18" rim it is.

Here is a picture of the R case just near the crank . There's a bloke in Garfield could probably do something with it, I'll post him a photo.


Got a few things back from the Hydro, now just to put together and wait for some warmer weather to paint.

Yes there are some great times ahead for us all, it takes a village etc etc.....

 Simon I thought I'd give you your own space, plus I was getting a bit confused about what I'd actually done and would go out to the shed only to find my bike was still in it's , how do we say, sh_t stage and they were your photos not mine.

I did my 250 exhaust in the BBQ the other night, it has come up ok , the pipes condition was ordinary but I had GMC knock out the dings and dents in  the header so it's cosmetically average but sound functionally.

I've got a very shiney swingarm that will need some attention. Looks like I'm back off to the Hydro in the not too distant future. What colour does everyone suggest for the swingarm/

I wouldn’t be too worried about that seal bore. Looks to me like it supports 4/5 of 5/8.

The Hydroblasting looks nice though.
