The crank case halves are polished and I put the transmission assembly back in. Have one more bearing to get in and I can make big progress.
Those crank shaft bearings just fall on when you get the right temperatures!
Mmmh, which surface do you mean:
- gasket surface to the main motor housing, (I would not recommend to to anything there, beside a control look, placing the halfs of the mtor housing on a mirror if you have doubts)
I would take the normal gasket and if there are some places if there are gaps, (from former deassemblings or so ...) take this http://www.gearparts24.de/flaechendi...rth:a3655.html
if it is really necessary.
The gasket surfaces are very holy to me, I don't touch them, even not when deassembling, just cleaning that's all.
Sidecovers can have silly marks from preowners, there I once had to take away riges of a heavy dented and cracked sidecover. I filled the gap with HT (high temperature) knead metal and aligned the filling with a cutter blade.
