well finally got off the main bearing, had to cut with a dremel, heat and use a chisel to pop it out, about 4 days of dickering about. Finally got the cam gear nuts off, not so bad, about three days, tight as a ducks ar.e. Now need the cam gear puller tool, waiting by the mailbox for the tool to arrive. Forgot to mention I also got off the main sprocket. Looks like it had red loctite on it hence another 4 days of trying to hold in a vice and wrench away on it. Feels good when you finally get these things off after so many days of frustration.
Meanwhile sent the heads out for a valve job, cylinders for a rebore and new pistons etc. I think the valves I could have done myself but the seats look like they may need cutting and I had to send out for rebore anyway.
Lots of patience needed on this project, I'm either waiting for parts or for service. Did find a nice NOS headlight assembly in UK - at least I hope its NOS and not some scam.
Patiently wating for my rear wheel to come back, parts for front fork assembly, tig welding my cases, head work etc. Got bored so did a rough tally of the bill so far! This stuff gets expensive fast.
I had my head and rockers vaporblasted, will send my cases also once repaired but what a diffference. I have a sandblaster but vaporblasting makes them look like new and doesn't cost a lot.
