Re: So it begins

Hey Simon, I have just joined AOMCC, still waiting for registration and password. Do you happen to know who the spares person is to contact for the con rods? For some reason I was under the impression that the AOMCC supplied the rods to Drags and that was where we had to purchase them, wasn't aware ...

Re: So it begins

Hey John, I have no idea, all that kind of stuff is over my head. I was just going to get the new bits and take it all to my machine shop and get them to sort it. Speaking of new bits, I have been looking at con rods for my bike. Drags are out of stock for the new ones and only have exchange recon o...

Re: So it begins

Yes John , new rods are required.
The only blessing is that it is only the engine I need to concentrate on, the rest of the bike is all good, as the saying goes.

Re: So the resurrection begins

Well it's Scotcho'clock, I'm sure it's 5pm somewhere in the world. Just come in from spending the afternoon in the workshop, with heaps more achieved. Not that it will look like it in the photos.

Re: So it begins

Looks like some kind of catastrophe has previously occurred.
Looks like a couple of the rods have had a little attention as well, never seen this before.

Re: So the resurrection begins

Ok, so sorry about the delay in posting any new photos etc. Stupid work getting in the way again. Anyway managed to get quite a bit done this Arvo. So, so, soooooo pleased that I invested the time to research the marque and find out as much as I could about the bike by joining forums such as this. F...

Re: So the resurrection begins

Another few hours spent in the workshop this Arvo. Accomplished quite a bit. Very happy with what I have done.
Primary chain and gears off. Primary cover removed along with the dynamo.

Re: So the resurrection begins

Apparently this is done to help drain the oil away from the rocker assembly. I can only presume to stop oil potentially flooding the tappet area and maybe burning it.
I am sure there are more knowledgeable members out there than I who know exactly why it's done.
