Some progress made.Got the bike apart and engine out last week and today I disassembled the engine. Everything seems to be in good, or at least decent shape. Tomorrow I will inspect the engine parts more closely but from what I saw today the only obvious thing was some pitting on the cam followers. I believe I have everything for the transmission except for the bracket that holds the oil cooler, however Charlie M has very kindly donated one. Thank you!!I have also decided some more on the build. It will be a 850T look-a-like (green with gold stripes) with twin discs, foot boards and convert transmission. The 850T looks has really grown on me, it’s a no-nonsense, basic bike, and the plan is that this will be my bike to use around town. I already have the 850 T parts I need (tool box lids, instrument cluster, triangular crash bars, seat bar, etc). And don’t fear; I will keep the critical Convert parts If I ever change my mind.I think I will call this one a ConverT.
I don't think you will be able to fit the 850T toolboxes, as the trans fluid tank sits there on the left hand side.
Went to see Dr. Converter this morning.He was amused by the size (small) and the set up in the gearbox (old-time) and agreed to fix it. He had a hub that he could use, but as I understand, he will have to open up the whole converter and then weld it back. Then manufacture a new race and drive in. Finally balance it all. Hopefully done in a week or two!
Wow, that s a lot of work, 'Dr. Converter' has some impressive skills!
When I got the bike, the coils were mounted by the battery tray by some PO. I guess one coil originally was fastened to the bracket under the top frame tube, but where does the other coil go originally?
