No. I persevered with the wrecking bar and heat and a different stance!

I'm trying not to imagine the 'stance' ;)

Well, that was interesting. one of the fork stanchions came out of the lower leg without undoing the nut at the bottom! The circlip is missing! Five jobs to do then clean up time for the cycle parts.

Remove other fork lower.
Remove centre stand bump stop rubbers from frame.
Remove starter motor bearing from side casing.
Remove broken bolt from bottom yoke.
Remove snapped bolt from switchgear and remove from clipon.

Simples!

The damper circlip fell out of the fork leg!

All apart, but the frame is really greasy. Hopefully have it done tomorrow. Needs to be grease free for the best painting experience.

On with the engine next week.

Well done. I really must get stuck in to my Winter 2018 project. A cunning plan involving perming two engines from two engines and a pair of Kanguro heads.

Does it involve Kangaroo heads on pillows?

Nah, safely nestling in cardboard boxes with new valve springs and stainless inlet valves to go with them.

Have you got down to a bare crank yet?

After a break for cold weather (20 minutes maximum) and Christmas, the crankcases came apart today. Spent another 20 minutes assembling all the piececs that fell out of the gearbox...

Interestingly, the output shaft bearing is a few balls short of a full house and has a strip missing off the ball retainer, but nowhere to be seen in the cases... A trip to the drain plug is the next step.

The cam has an S stamped on it.

Debating whether to remove the con rods as there is no up / downmovement.

btw - no centre gasket... lots of red Hermit Shite, though.

No copper washers on the internal bolts, cases are a bit dirty.

Also need to decide which barrels to use. I have new rings.

Onwards and downwards with the bank overdraft... :)

The comedian Rick Hall told of his Aunt once being struck by lightning between the first and second hole whilst on a golf course. He believed that was something to do with her stance :roll:

Thanks. I'm taking my time as I wait for the crank! Hopefully the shells will be in this week.

Very nice. Makes me want to do a full restor on my Camel. But then again, I just want to ride it !
Cheers.
