Work on the sled so far

Lots o parts in these crazy machines! Not like working on a 2-stroke!

The motor out

Exhaust gaskets literally fried on the outside pipes

Exhaust gasket leak on the clutch side

Clutch side piston is the worst (middle two are fine)

But I don't believe I need to re-nic - no marks on the walls in any way but gonna check for out-a-round to be safe.

Brake side piston - not nearly as bad as clutch side

Erick - I put a little oil down each one and ran compression check - and my guage would hit over 270 on all four - even after a few hours and turning it over a bunch.

Seeing as I have it this far apart and have to replace 2 pistons and re-ring - I am going to replace all 4 and go with low-comp pistons and a standard or slightly thicker headgasket. Then I will be able to safely (now that I understand the boost calc) run 10 lbs of boost on 93 octane and 15 lbs on 1/2 & 1/2 mix.
Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...




Chit, I could win this!

Edge - I pretend :) It's like a giant jigsaw puzzle!

Doo it - yes a majority of that has to be done to get the motor out - I have probably spent 4-5 hours getting to that point. A lot of it is plastic and the seat. The biggest thing is keeping track of all the electical and where each line snakes too. Been taking pics alnog the way in case my mind fails!
