XL250k3: beat it into shape

Air filter is doing the business, not.


all four tappet lock nuts are there, nothing looks too bad in there.


Points, well they are there at least.


Spent the rest of the day beating the clutch arm, got it all in good condition now, the roller bearing at the top is seized and missing a few rollers, so that’ll have to be replaced, but it’s good enough now for a test spin. Also beat the bent arm that’s supposed to fit on the star wheel, good enough for a test spin. only took one whack too, skills 🙂

The camchain tensioner lock up set-up is banjaxed, the threads all mullered, so i had to make something to actually lock the guide. when i replace the guides (have to take the flywheel off) i can take the tensioner out and with that out i can fix the threads. hog it out to M8. it’ll leak a bit of oil but no worries.


Niki came over and we span over the bros for 5 minutes on the land rovers battery, it started! good honda. engines fooked,but lack of oil and 100mph will do that to anything. scrapping it, might try to sell it whole to a breakers but if other people need stuff i’d break it myself and give niki the money.
