Yep, me too.

But a press is my next target, I would love to be able to sort cranks out myself.

It may be a lot to learn but bring it on Dance

Ok, after a very busy year, I started work on my Ns engine today.

Had been putting it off because I wasn't sure what I was going to find.
Well apart from a missing RHS crank seal (how it was running without one, I have no idea but it does explain the amount of oil in the crank!), it is in pretty good condition, no bodges, no chisel marks on the cases & everything came apart without too much of a struggle.

However, once cleaned up & ready to put back together I found the new RHS bearing I bought was the wrong size, in the right box but far too big to fit the NS.................aagghhhhh bloody suppliers Evil or Very Mad

New one should be here tomorrow.

Bottom end completed today, just waiting on a new piston kit.

Found a couple more problems though. One dowel missing that holds the kick start, stop plate in position, fortunately I had one in my box of spares Very Happy

And a mysterious washer. It was with the idler gear (like most people I like to keep all the parts together in the order they came out) but according to the haynes manual, there isn't a washer under the idler gear No Idea

However there is one under the clutch basket, which wasn't on my clutch basket as removed! I'm assuming the mystery washer is that one Pray

I'm now starting to believe that it is worth having the engine apart on every bike you buy especially if it has the tell tale signs of being apart before Sad

I always worry when I've had something apart and on rebuild their seems to be bits left over... Surely people just add things that shouldn't be there and I'm just putting it right... Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I'm with you there TS Laughing

So, top end on, carb & exhaust fitted, first kick and...................

Fired up Shocked

Not for long though, little bit of tweaking needed on the carb & she is running sweetish......
There is just a faint, not sure how to describe it, 'tinking' sound from the bottom end, I'm hoping it's just a 'bedding' in noise Pray

Any ideas people?

Quick update, just because it's a bit quiet on here at the mo.

Haven't done anything interesting i'm afraid, just fired the bike up for the first time in months.



As it is running on premix & auto, that picture does not do it justice

However this is what the 'shed' looked like at the same time


You really have to love 2 strokes Love
