Take care around my Dr!!!
oh yes I'm looking after your DR, have you noticed it is now on a dolly so that I can easily move it out of the way when work is going on, no more 30 point turns to get it to a safer position. :smilebig:

Well it is a long time since I updated this thread and I still haven't found any space in my garage ........... but the project goes on!
Stripped down in a day

The powder coated frame currently resides in my van to save space but I have been getting on with 'stuff'.

I now have a large selection of sub assemblies, forks rebuilt, yokes, suspension linkages, swing arm, carbs rebuilt and I have re-plated bolts, plates etc so when I get to the re-build it should be completed in double quick time (famous last words!)

Next task is the engine, unfortunately the gear selector shaft has been damaged in the past (end knocked off and splines rounded) so it will be a full pull down, need to split the cases, what horrors am I going to find in there?

The motor is proving 'fun' some idiot has been in there before me. If I had a thrust washer that had 'outside' stamped on it I would make sure I got it round the right way! Missing washers under the head bolts, the list goes on.
I need to split the crank cases as noted previously. Hmmm bodger has got there before me, half the bolts are damaged so the heads need drilling out. Currently waiting for some new cobalt drills, mine have died through over use.
Been busy with the red engine enamel. Very close to OE colour but I have to say this is going to be one bright engine. :cool:

Finally got round to splitting the cases, the bolts were close to impossible to obtain so the splitting waited until I had the bolts.
No sign of the loose needle that was missing from the CCT or the missing washers from the head bolts. All looks good, time to get the new gear shaft put in to replace the damaged one.

Splitting cases is always fun. Hearing all the little clink clinks then trying to find out where they fell out. :eek:

You are lucky. That's looks clean inside. I once split a z1A 900 motor, to find 300ml of thick sludge and bits of cam tensioner. Oh, as well as cracked valves, holed pistons and a rusted clutch.

Yes, pleasantly surprised although the oil strainer was broken and full of muck, luckily very few metallic flecks.
I pulled the transmission yesterday and checked it over, fit to go and replaced the damaged shaft.
