Good luck anyway.

First sentence in the thread, check it out. I don't have time for this and thank you kindly for participating, but several pages back you were schooling me and then admitted to NOT doing this particular carburator. You were suggesting 230 main jets or something like that. If you sell sorted TM pumper carb kits, step up and give me your baseline jetting or am I supposed to pay you and not do this on my own? You never even answered my most basic hurried questions...you came in here, I didn't drag you in. If a vendor posts in threads...bleh...done.


Okay...on with the show.


Rip and tear. Three hours ago I walked away from the computer and did this:










Splines were pretty much welded and I had to beat the hell out of the trans to get it off.








Right about then my handy dandy mailman pulled up.




This guy is my hero and will get my business from now on for used parts:




There was one little burr that I had to file off, then it fit perfect.




I'll put the new shaft in the trans tomorrow and start assembly...as soon as I get those splines nice and dry.




I could push hard and get us out the door saturday, but I'm going to take it easy and get everything perfect going thru the final drive too.

Oh yeah, anybody know if the clutch pushrod felt comes split or do I need a new one? It has an angled split that looks like some plastic o-ring spacers if you know what I mean.

If somebody would like to give me a link explaining the properties of felt that would be fine too.




Edit: Nevermind, I found it...split felt, last thing I want to do is go buy more parts.

What you do in hours...would take me months...and then I'd still have to call you, to fix it .

Love the extra day approach...

Haha, thats the girlfriends bike - I suspect my welds are not up to her level of satisfaction Plus, I am a dumbass. If I could do this, I would be spanking that poor little R60 I've traumatized.

Put a little non-directional on the plates.




Set up the clutch.




Started the tear down.




The upper drive shaft internal snap ring fought me for a couple of hours. Gotta make sure to only hit things hard enough to pop them loose and NOT break the case or something stupid.




I think I can get it all together by mid-day Sunday realistically. Then we'll ride it around town a bit and spend the evening packing up. That'll make for a nice calm exit early Monday morning.

A clean bike is a happy bike.

Don't forget to wash and polish those cases.
