|This picture shows the inside of the flywheel compartment with the wire netting that was added by the guy who built the sucker.|
|Left side all cleaned up|
|Right side all cleaned up as well|
|Rear of the cases. Note the three mounting bolt areas. These were all cut in order to get the bolts out. They were then welded up and lapped with a stone to get the cases to sit right. Thanks Little Ray for the awesome weld job!|
So I went back down to Digger's speed shop to continue the work on my bike. I cleaned up the gasket areas on the cases and gave my motor a good once over with some brake cleaner and a rag. It looks 10 times better. There was a lot of gunk on this baby.
I placed the case halves together to check the gap between the two gasket surfaces. The leak was coming from the case seams so I was pretty sure they weren't in good shape. I was right. This puppy was in bad shape.
I took a lapping stone and slowly ground down all the high spots in hopes to get less clearance between the case halves.
It worked! The clearance is practically zero and with a little yamabond, I am pretty certain the leak will be gone. Fingers crossed.
Next I will need to mill the holes that were welded shut for the rear motor mount studs. After that, the bearings and seals will be replaced and I should be in good shape.
More updates to come. Thanks for reading.
