IIRC Jerrycotton of this parish used an Ignitech unit which lets him configure the ignition - check back at post # 9070

You'll remember seeing his build

Hello everybody.

First, i owe a big THANKS to Stormforce8. Without his help, i have no idea where were my project these days.
He helped me with ordering and sending me a special tool that without it, it was impossible to continue the engine rebuilding.
The tool arrived about 6 months after Stormforce8 ordered it.
Stormforce8, thank you!

My last post was after i got the main bearings out.
I tried to get the new bearing in without a special tool.
All i managed to do is to damage the two new bearing and giving me lots of headaches.

So, with Stormforce8 assistance, i got the tools to get the bearings in and out.(two different tools) .





Heating things up.



New main bearings are in.



Assembling the gear.





New con-rod bearing and the con rods are in.



The gear got back to it's place.



Selector is in.



Oils pump turn.

Rebuilding the @

Hi all.
We're back!

The part i hate the most is to try to understand which o-ring goes were, when you have a gasket kit.

After the oil pump, the crankshaft found its way home.
The engine block is closed!



Clutch



And the right engine cover-



Each pistons weights:



I checked the pistons, piston pins and the connecting rods weight.few grams difference between the con rods.

The engine is almost complete!

Looks nice for sand, maybe mud. I love my new Siracs though for all around riding. Will send pics when I get a chance.

@ engine rebuilding

Dear Comrads!!

I'm happy to give you the last parts of my engine re-building.
Lots of work, new baby, establishing my own business... i had no time to even get into this forum.
Hope i will have a bit more air to breath in the future.

I've replaced the handlebar and put some raisers.



Today i have ROX raisers 2.5" instead.



I must say i was a bit afraid pressing the starter button after more than a year.

Today-

Makhtesh Ramon-



HaBasor stream-




Things to come-

Fuel Injection
Cylinder head porting and cylinder boring (maybe XL700 cylinder head implement - 4 valves )
rally kit

Cheers!
