So now to order some parts...
Figured I might as well rebuild the oil pump while I'm here.
What do I need?

Apart from a couple of 'O' rings, there really isn't much to do inside pump.
Just check the clearances are good.
There is a short tube in sump from pick up to transmission oil pump, that is probably worth changing (only on 550f)

That was a grade school project that I didn't have the heart to toss.

More dress up parts for a non usable bike...lol




Did finally get off my butt and order the oil seals and a few other OEM parts the old girl needed.



Thinking that over the winter ill pop the motor out for a freshening up.
Might do a "gentleman's express" style motor, so I'm starting to collect those parts.

Had some time today so I spend it on the chopper.

Motor needed to come out for gaskets and such.
Came out without much fuss, way easier then a stock frame!
Bunch of parts already here, bunch more to order.

Good to see ya getting at it. I really need to weld up an engine stand bracket for my XS motor. That damned thing weighs a ton. Pain in the ass to work on just sitting on the bench.

I just used some angle Al from Lowes.  Not the best, but works.
Would be nice to have something more "professional"

I'm looking at the 750 lb stand from HF.  Then some iron mounts for the bike engine.  My 550 engine seems dainty compared to the xs650 motor.  Doing anything with the frame or chassis while the motor is out?
