Nothing that a little premix wouldn't flush out in a 1000 miles or so!

hah, right.

it split really easy aside from the moron who decided to fill the entire ignition side crank end with red loctite.

bearing, seals, etc., ordered. i actually have the expensive bearing around from another project.
gotta press apart the crank to have a look see, i would assume a rod kit is in order. big end bearing and pin are probably toast, and it was missing small end bearing... they cost almost what a rod kit costs.

What was he storing in the crank.... battery acid? On the brighter side, look how purdy that tranny is.

yeah, i thought the same thing, tranny looks great with no issues (it sure did look pretty compared to the crank).

so i bought:
con rod, bearings, rm370 piston/pin/bearing/rings, and some seals and gaskets. oh and a set of points/condenser just for the hell of it. just waiting for parts to arrive. $300 or so in parts. that's cheaper than i expected for the whole deal - rm370 piston really made it affordable-good thing it was on std bore. dropped cylinder and crank off at my crank guy, so just waiting now. i have a 250 radial to do next. unless i decide to sell the 250.
