Spent a total of 9 hours and $400 today.
Here's an engine.
And it needs to go in here. Bike has been stripped down.
Lay it on the side technique.
Some parts were missing from this engine such as the stator, signal generator, signal generator cover, gear position sensor, and starter motor cover.
But luckily I kept the stator, signal generator, signal generator cover, and gear position sensor from the grenaded 1983 engine.
I only need the starter motor cover. I also need to drain the oil and fill it up with new oil, air filters for the carburetor, and possibly new intake pipes (I couldn't put the carbs on because it's hard).
What else? Need a gasket for the stator cover (there is none). Pulled the starter out of the engine and bench tested it. It works! Good compression on all 4 cylinders and that's good as well.
OK... I have a very good feeling about this engine
