I finished stripping and cleaning all of the engine cases and covers.  I put the bottom end back together and it is now ready for paint.

Crankshaft and transmission installed.



Kickstart shaft installed>



Case bolts labeled



Hondabond applied, cases mated, and bolts torqued.

Lets see, 2 months between posts.... I'd say the mile eater!

But Mike is doing things right and has no need to rush.

Ha!  Yeah, I will try and get this done for The Thaw. If not, I'll be on the old Couch Rocket.  I'm going to need a couple warm days to get the paint sprayed.

If the budget provides... I would ship the parts needing blast cleaned to RestoCycle Niles is a professional and will do you right... the metal will be so nice you will hate to paint it.

Look for the banner on the home page or search it and look at his work. Truly the best method.

Masking done.








I also got another part in the mail.  I hope the product lives up to the fancy packaging.  It sure looks a lot better than the Pamco ignition.
