Mark I haven’t checked other than using ups website. I’m leaning more towards driving it just to get out of the house for a few hours. Plus it’s a nice little cruise.

Does anyone know of an engine case half bolt and stud kit? Looking over the case half bolts and a couple of bolts and one stud is necked down and the holes are cross threaded. I figure I'll need to at least helicoil 3 holes and need new bolts/studs for a few other ones. This motor was super hacked together and I'm still shocked it didn't go splodey in the short time I rode it.

As your giving the bottom end to Ed, ask him if he will sort this side for you, as you may or may not know he is a parts supplier as well as machinist, whilst he has your cases it will be worth while him doing the full job


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

Allan that’s my plan as far as having heli coils installed. British fasteners wants $70 for the correct 5/16-26 heli coil kit. I only need 3 holes repaired so Ed would have to charge me an insane amount to make it not worth it. As for the bolts and studs I didn’t think about him being able to source some. I’ll definitely ask when the parts get shipped/dropped off.

Redmosquit,
I agree with your concerns regarding COVID-19. I rigorously support social distancing. If you drive, I would leave the box at the doorstep and speak to Ed from 20 feet or by phone. I talked to him often on the phone when he did work for me. I am sure he can correct your case studs. Sometimes replacing a stud with a thru bolt is a simple solution but Ed will know how to do all that. Shipping has not gone down over the past 20 years. It has steadily increased.
Mr Mike
