Winter T100R rebuild was a little optimistic. Pics.

Well, it's almost Spring and my Winter T100R rebuild project is nowhere near done. The engine is getting close, though. Some new pics:

Well done..!!

The work you have put in to date is a credit to you. I look forward to seeing what you do with the rest of the bike, if it is half as good as the engine it will be a stunner..!!.

One question, you seem to have reused the nuts holding the oil pump to the block, was this because they were in good condition or were you having difficulty sourcing replacements as I did?.

Cheers,

Peter

Yes, the oil pump nuts were in good shape, so I reused them. I'm using blue Loctite on everything.

I went back and looked at the photos showing the condition of the bike before you began, Sweet Jeez Louise!!! A relic of rust!
You are doing a fine job of ressurecting the machine indeed! Hope it starts on kick #1.

ed h,

Looks like you are doing some good work on that ride of yours.
And taking your time to do it right the first time as well.

I tried to look at your pics, but in all of your links, the slashes go the wrong way. You want regular forward slash, not backslash. (use '/' not '\')

Thanks for pointing out the problem. I must have fat-fingered it, and then cut and paste propagated the error. My browser seems to correct for it, but apparently some don't.

It should be fixed now.

You're doing beautiful work. I know you're disappointed that it's taking longer than you had hoped, but keep doing things 100% like you have been and in the end, you will be very happy that you took the extra time.
