are those 'fangs' under the rocker cover drip condensed oil right into thes funnel shape holes on the rocker arm?Will there be any lubrication problem to the rocker arms when the engine is started after parking for a long period of time?
Thanks for posting, this is great1In a couple weeks I will be reassembling my 500 motor, this will be a great help.I have a question on the engine case oil seals, did you install them prior to placing the cases over the crank and transmission shafts and did you fit the seal protectors as the case was being dropped over the shafts, I am not sure of the sequence.CheersJim
Seals are installed, seal protectors greased and slipped into the seals, then the right case half is slipped down over the shafts. Once it is in place, the seal protectors are removed. I wrapped a layer of clear packing tape around the shift shift splines to protect that seal as well.
They can also be installed after the cases are bolted together. I find it easier this way, especially if you do not have the tapered shaft ends. Also one less thing to worry about when getting the cases together.
All engine internals were stored in boxes in a damp basement. :-(
Sure they can, but to me it's just easier to do it the way the factory manual says to do it. I didn't have the seal protectors, but it was a simple 1/2 hour enjoyable job on the lathe to make them. With them there's no worry at all.
nice pictures! and a very clean job , how did you get the cases that clean? i never manage completely clean cases on morini engines, even after bead blasting.
The customer had them vapor blasted prior to bringing them to me. Whoever did the job could have cleaned them a little better afterwards. I spent several hours digging media out of bolts holes and such - once the liquid evaporates, it dries to a near concrete hardness.
ditto on flushing the parts after vapour blasting, I spend more time rinsing with hot water and then blowing out with compressed air (often several times) than cleaning, its worth it thought as the parts are like new once vapour blasted. Looking forward to more updates
fantastic workmanship Thanks for providing this great resource, my engine rebuild took a left turn, the new valves NLM sent me require new style matching valve spring collets (kind of a spilt O ring style recess in the valve), should get the parts next week.
Will the clutch cover and the outer part of the generator/chain engine cover and the valve covers be polished? It just does not look right otherwise...
Charlie is there a particular sequence you follow to install the air box . rubber boots and carbs? It looks like a tight fit!Beautiful work by the way, its going to be a gorgeous bike.
