That finger makes me cringe everytime I see it.
 - Haven't given up on the engine yet, but if I do part it out I will keep ALL the DTTers aware as I know some of the items are getting to be "not so common".

It's my "constant reminder" when I'm doing stuff like that HD... just have to rub my finger over the ball of my thumb to remember... hahaha

Just an update to explain why there has been no updates.
I have been working 6-7 day weeks due to Corporate pulling 6 presses out of my workplace. I am the Maintenance Supervisor and not only oversee my Department but also outside contractors involved with the moves. Not only is there 65-70 hour weeks... and I am salary... but the underlying fear they may be planning to close my Plant..
4 weeks ago my other Hobby took a bad turn. I am a fish keeper and the heater stuck "on" in my 180 gallon aquarium. Killing ALL of my prized Mbuna (Google it). So after flushing about 45 half cooked fish, and cleaning a dead tank, then restocking... the new fish broke out with a case of Ich! (Google it).
My Wifey has been cooking all my favorite meals trying to get me out of the depression (bless her heart) but nothing seems to make it better. So tonight I said "ef-it" and decided I need some shop time... Bought a 40, turned on th tunes and had at it.
Got the head studs out by double nutting the studs without incident and then separated the case haves on the engine.
RUST! everything is covered with RUST!!!
 I swear when it rains it pours. I plan to continue my search for a good donor bike for this project. And felt pretty good to get back at it, even with yet another setback.

I'm still trying to find a 16mm fine thread bolt that I can use to pull the charging systems rotor off the crank to continue with the disassembly of the engine, but I just know everything inside is probably rusted.

Not necessary to remove rotor from crank to split the cases.

Wow when it rains it really does pour right? I live by O'Rielly's law...
 
Very sucky but things do tend to sort themselves out... so hopefully all will either return to normal or morph into something awesome very soon :D
 
Fingers crossed you'll find yourself a donor parts bike or engine soon and can get moving right along...

Bad news for sure Hoosier. Hopefully those changes at work are nothing too drastic........

Isn't there some kind of treatment for that Ich? I read into it a long time ago and thought it could either way (destructive or a slight nuisance).

And I think I recall seeing a 450 local to me (Pittsburgh) on craigs........parts only, no title, etc. Interested?
