Mounting of engine and rear wheel
A hard work this weekend. Cleaning and polishing the engine. In the end of the week I will try to mount the engine in the frame.
It is time to start working on the engine. Last season there was some oil leakage from the engine. It was difficult to spot exact where the leakage was, but one place was for sure, the gear indicator switch was loose and the oil came out. I don’t know the history of this engine from 1976, I will therefore change all oil seals and O-rings in the area where I had the oil leakage, no 1, 2 and 3. Please see the photos.
I was lucky and got some help from my friends on facebook , advice about how to remove the oil seals.
Calipers and brake hose are mounted. I have to buy some new rubber parts, + bleeder for the brake fluid. New Suzuki decals are also in place.
