If you can make it better do so
Well, after getting back from Egypt I’ve found myself in mandatory isolation for two weeks. So armed with little more than a runny nose and my new gasket I went to work.

I feel as if I’m becoming a little quicker at going through this whole process, I guess fourth... or fifth times a charm.

I’ll have to wait another 8 days before I can head down to Rexs to grab a Cb 900 oil pump, I have a sneaking suspicion that Victoria will be in lock down by then.

Thats ok because I can do the pump with the engine in the frame, right now I’ll reinstall the modified sump, and cam cover, then I’ll see how I feel about putting it back in by myself. I may have to wait until old man Murphy can come visit

Motorcycle part sales should be considered essential services though. Good luck and stay safe.
I hope so, i guess if hairdressers are considered essential, why the hell not right , I question our leaders judgment sometimes.

I just got my test results back and I’m certified negative for COVID which means I just caught the normal flu from jnr. (breathes sigh of relief through congested sinuses)

Thanks Jimbo, feels like ages since I’ve been back in the shed.

Changed over the little rubber seals on the cam cover bolts, a little dip in some boiling water made them easier to put on, trick I learned from the CV boots.

Put a little sealant around the gasket then boom, top end buttoned back up

I pulled the sump gasket seal from the kit put it on then noticed

she don’t line up, a little perturbed but I’ll have to order another I’m thinking.

I sent Rex a heads up that I may pop in travel restriction permitting in 8 days time, but who knows what will be happening by then.

So I caught up with Rex at a distance of 1.5 m while wearing a mask. He was in the process of finding a reco 1100 oil pump, when I arrived to return the 1100 sump that he lent us to use as a template. We discussed if there were any differences in the oil distributor, and Rex was unsure if they differed between the 750, 900, and 1100 so he sent me home with one for comparison along with an oil cooler to check if the size was good

When I got the oil distributors side by side I found they’re exactly the same.

So onto the motor. Today I established I can dead lift a 750 motor with no oil in it, albeit for a very short amount of time. ( pretty much exactly the amount of time it took my wife to kick the blocks of wood out of the way and slide the jack under.

After that point I was on my own. My wife had rushed away after jnr shouted out that he needed to pee. We are in the toilet training stage, so from the heads up we have about 30 seconds to spring in to action.

With no more than 2 f bombs I managed to get the motor back into position. Once I got the bottom and front engine mounts in, I installed the exhaust so I could get an idea of how much clearance lock to lock I had with an oil cooler there.
