The work to take apart the GT380 J/K model has started.
Aiming for a full teardown and rebuild.A lot of work to be done, but that was part of the plan. Learning by doing…and hope the result will look good.
Step 1, get going:
The pipes are mounted wrong, off they go.
The old wiring is just horrible…. Luckily, I got hold of brand new wiring loom, phuu 🙂
Step 2, air filter and carbs:
Service manual says: Remove the left carb before removing the air filter, and I did so:
Dismounted the carburetors and laid them in a box for later rebuild
Step 3, organize :
Will use plastic boxes and bags to organize the parts. + stickers in the bags telling what it is.
Do some thinking before acting…..
Thinking done, loose and remove no1 and no 2 bolts.
Since the engine is only connected to the no 3 bolt the engine can be lifted to allow a wooden board to slide in.
Remove no 3 bolt.
Lift the engine to and align using a piece of wood in the left hand side until the board is even with the bench.
Lower the MC lifter and bolt the board to the bench.
Continue to lower the lifter until the engine can move freely away from the brackets.
Slide the engine onto the bench and you are done. 🙂 🙂
