    Hey Rock!

    Major update on that Sporty project coming...

    But yer gonna hafta swallow some machining added in with it.
    Should make for some interesting welding stuff though.

    Seems the right hand case is cracked to the point of not really being worth fixing
    monetarily, but gonna do it anyway so the frame and case numbers stay matching.

    There are at least five major cracks that start at the cam bearing holes
    and travel about 2-3 inches each and they're cracked all the way through.

    It's gonna require cutting the crap outta the cases and then welding everything back solid, which
    means I'm gonna hafta re-machine all the important stuff like the cam bearing bores and pinion shaft bore.
    Some pics are already taken and more are on the way.

    Stay tuned and I'll post a link when I get the page made.

    Best,

    Weyland

      LOL~!
      Yeah, I knew, but yer right, most others probably didn't.
      I stuck them in the oven at 500 degrees for a half hour, then bead blasted them to clean them, then heated them again to get ready to weld.
      Thatz when I found the HUGE cracks...
      Was really disappointed.
      Just means more work fer me though, and when I'm done, I know everything will be right.

      Best,

            No prob, Rock.
            I appreciate it, but I think I've got it nailed by mapping out the other case. Plus, I've got some other irons in the fire that might pay off as well.

            SHE HAS BEEN ROAD HARD AND PUT AWAY WET A TIME OR TWO HASN'T SHE..... MORE THAN ONE OVER REVED MISSED GEAR........... KEEP SEARCHING OTHER FORUMS I'M SURE YOU CAN FIND SOME........
            Yeah, she was used and abused pretty well.
            But she's in good hands now. (:>)

            AS A MATTER OF FACT E-MAIL ME DIRECT AND I WILL GET YOU A PHONE NUMBER TO CALL AND SEE IF MAYBE HE HAS SOME LAYING AROUND......... HAVE YOU EVER DEALT WITH ANTIQUE CYCLE SUPPLY OUT OF MICHIGAN I THINK................... THIS DUDES GOT SOME ODD THINGS LAYING AROUND......................

            <waves it off>
            Not a problem, Rock.
            I understand *completely*.
            But I must be getting too used to it, because I don't see where I cussed in the post.
            ( I _do_ see it all over the web page on our site, though. (:>) )
            I'll keep better watch over myself though...

            Well, credit where credit's due -
            I'll tell the wife. She took'm while I was working.

            I also found out last night that she _did_ get pics of me repairing the fin on the cylinder, so I'll post those later. Also found some others to put up as well.

            My machine is an old (emphasis on OLD) Hobart AC/DC Tig 250. I love that machine. I've got some pics of the shop I'll put up as well.

            Thanks for the offer, but I wanna do this on our own. All work will be done by me-n-the wife on this one. In fact, I've already made some tooling for the job so that I don't have to send out stuff like line honing the cases and line reaming the cam cover bushings. (will be posted as well so that other people don't have to shell out hundreds of dollars for tools or services)

            I'm pretty **** about some things.
            One of them is that it ain't yer bike unless your blood, sweat, and tears are in it. Otherwise, yer just riding something somebody else put together.
            And anyone can do that...
