Oh, and if you need motor parts, I have a whole one I don't need and am willing to sell parts out of, or the whole thing.

Great to know! Is the top end in good shape? I may just take you up on that.

Spent a couple hours getting a closer look. Pulled the carbs and surprise, they look like they've been sitting for 15 years! How heavy are these motors? I've never had one out. Wondering if I need to call help before getting a hernia trying to lift it onto my workbench.

Got the motor out! It was a struggle to get it up on the bench, but my guts didn't bust out, so I think I managed. My workbench hasn't had such an important job till now, so I figured it should get a big clean. I have a big aversion to pegboard, it's promise of modular storage seems to always fall into a mish mash of "i think this goes here" and you end up with a vertical junk drawer. I'm going to rip that shit down as soon as I have someone to take it away.

Now I think I'm ready to dig in and see if I can fix this, or if I'll be trying to source a motor.

What's the damage to the motor? I'd assess the situation before you start throwing parts at it.

Don't be a tool John. Jb weld may be good enough for airplanes, but don't bring that noise into the custom motorcycle scene, you savage.
