Ha ha, go for it!

You won't have to worry about a chain getting all muddied up and the suspension reaction of a driveshaft would raise the rear and put more weight on the front wheel, I think, and this seems like a good idea for hill climbing.  Just surmising.

Did a quick drain od the tank and was happy to know that it was just a tad brown without chunks and this was how the petcock looked which from sitting for 7 plus years I will take that! I just hope when I open up the carbs they are clean.

The air filter looks almost brand new knock on wood so well see..here are crappy quick photos

Well I have a deadline I need to try to have it done by! October 29 if its not done ill be going to film and cheer on my friends and family who will be attending

Things I need to do by then clean/check carbs, reseal case cover (I read its really common) clean tank, replace all lines, plugs and get tires! I hope I can get it done in time. I have a 4 month old so my time is super limited on this but keep your fingers crossed!

Cleaning and putting a new gasket on so this one wont leak. Next step will be ignition wiring to have a toggle switch and maybe a new push start location...I'm slacking but finally got a little time to work on the sloth today and will be tomorrow

I need to get it running and at least get a rear tire for this climb   ill be positive about it haha

 sorry for a boring update

Well I'm nervous now..I believe this is the timing chain tensioner? Which is not good  (this was a spare bike for my uncle) but the bolts are twisted in maybe 2 turns and its just loose flopping around if I touch it. From what ive read it has to be tdc before you adjust anything so it doesnt jump a tooth.....how would I know if it jumped a tooth?

I think this bike might go back into the storage where I got it from haha I do not want to tear into this just because it has 4 cylinders I wouldnt of cared as much if it was a twin like my old Honda. I dont know how confident I am to tear into because I hate timing chains.
If anyone has input thank you

I have a few pictures, sorry the carbs are still on so its hard to see

Also I put gasket maker on the cover some may hate it but I dont care it leaked so bad and I don't want to dump alot of money into it before I find out what is going on with this turf





I did a little overkill on it just because

I suggest you get yourself a workshop manual and familiarise yourself with the valve timing proceedure. DO NOT TRY AND START OR TURN OVER THE MOTOR WITH THE TENSIONER UNDONE LIKE THAT.


Yes - I was yelling.


As for your gasket goo icing - you do realise that pretty much for whatever oozes out the outside of the cover, there is the same amount on the inside? Where will that end up if it comes loose?

Yeah I was already thinking that, to everything you said. I plan on getting one and a new gasket.

 Ive been reading up on the tensioner but I want to have the manual so I do it correctly not just guessing by a why someone tells me too. I just got too excited with the goop haha
