It's been a while since I've posted an update.
Transmission case back from being cleaned.
Case and rear cover heated, chilled bearings installed.
Mated to the engine.
Assembling the lower frame rails and centerstand to the engine and trans.
Up on it's "feet" again.
Going to need a helper at this point
Working on the rear drive. Completely disassembled, heating the case in the oven so the outer race of the needle bearing will drop out.
Most of the cleaned internal bits. Seal surfaces of the carrier have been polished.
The outer race has been spinning in the case - not much, but any is too much.
Case ready to go off for media blasting.
Friends Travis and Martin helped me lower the upper frame onto the lower assembly.
Hooked the plug wires to the coils.
Installed the ignition switch.
Peeled the hard, old tires off of the rims.
The front one is pretty nasty under the rim strip.
The rear one has one bent spoke. How did that happen and how did only one get bent? Darned if I know.
Pretty good kink in it once removed.
Replaced with a good used one from my stash.
Both wheels completely stripped now.
Rear one wasn't quite as nasty under the rim strip.
