threads?

Threads? Where are the threads?


All I see is RUST:


Will keep it soaked until my puller arrives. May need to get a puller that will grab the outside of the flywheel:

swingarm

Swingarm was chewed up by the chain:


I ordered a new thrust cover and seal - waiting upon its arrival:


Got a new guard to go over the thrust cover:


Load it with grease. Will install swingarm after new thrust cover/seal gets here:

Nice work Ray!! It's going to be too nice to get dirty!!
If the threads are gone, O'Reilly auto parts loans tools.
I got a valve spring tool for the TT500 head. No cost just leave a deposit.
A finger puller might be your answer

Applying heat around the opening may help loosen the grip the flywheel has on the crank end.

Did you get the fork boots from the vintagespoke.com? They look good.

Keep up the good work! I restored a 1976 yamaha IT400 two years ago. Very similar to the YZ400. Tuned right the things can go like a bat out of hell on the straights and climb up a wall if necessary. Just dont try to turn.

Are you having any trouble finding parts?

There is a shop called Yamaha Speed and Sport. i believe they are out of Pennsylvania. Have most anyting for vintage yamahas. Also, Yamaha has a online data base with parts numbers and component breakdowns.

Cant link them now, but if you need the links, let me know.

Been able to find most everything I need so far. The bike was almost totally complete and unmolested, hadn't really been trashed as is the case with so many old dirt bikes. Seems like it had been left outside in the weather for too many years, but down here in the desert at least it is dry and fairly kind to machinery.
Bike is starting to come back together... slowly and carefully.
Thanks for the tips!

I have restored several old motorcycles, pickups, Jeeps, VW Bugs, Camaros, etc. Sold my '83 RM250, still kicking myself. Always set them up to RUN. No trailer queens here. Going to RIDE this YZ and crash it. No powder coating for me, I paint with rattle can, that way I can give it a shot of paint after I scratch it up.
(thanks for the tips on a puller)

Yo se` Rattle Can...

My TT500 project is a real rust rat. I won't worry about racing it.
I went a little overboard with my '68 DT1. Can't bring myself to put it on the track again.

forks done

before:


after:


Forks are done. Filled with 415 cc of 10 wt. fork oil according to service manual specs, seems like a lot. May draw some out, service manual said measure 163 mm to oil - range of 146 to 195 mm - might take it down to 150 mm. Easy to add more if needed. Fork boots from vintagespoke:

It's fun seeing the big stuff go back together, might start to look like a dirt bike. But so much time is spent doing little things:


Little details, lots of work:


Not too exciting, but necessary:


Now, if I can get that flywheel off...
