I know, but Im afraid this is too much.   ;D

As I was planning on the exhaust being the only stand out nice chrome.

And now I got a "fugly" rear rim and super clean front.   >:( haha.

Im just dont get to bitch about "clean" parts very often.  LOL

Sell the nice stuff to buy some with a bit of patina?

Nah, I'll hang on to the nice stuff.  As no doubt, the day will come.  I want to do full on proper restoration.  ;D

So long as its straight, solid and CHEAP.  The sort of condition, not worth the hassle to sell on ebay. Yet, you just cant toss it into a dumpster either.

I got new bearings and everything sitting here ready to go in.  And I will use this nice brake rotor.  Cause, Stopping is a good thing.  ;)

I have a bunch of t500 front wheels or bare rims That match that description, you could have for the cost of the ride, it may not be worth the cost of shipping though.

I will get you a few pictures.  And if cheap is you pay for shipping then it's all yours if you decide you want it.

Re: 400 four, Plan B engine

Unloaded Plan B for testing.



I found a funky little repair.  Welded and ground.  From here it looks solid, but I will have to dig into it.

If you have any insight to what lies behind that cover please share...Its under the clutch adjuster cover.

A pretty protected area from the outside.  wondering if something could have gone very wrong inside.



Seller said it has 7k miles.  I was really hoping to see 150psi.  But this is fine.  Still its better than the 13k motor.

Looks like the big bolt holding gear on primary shaft could've backed out.  Eating the inside of the cover.
