Well, I had so much fun with my last recon project (look at avatar pic). That I picked up another. I paid $200 from my buddy that bought it from my other buddy.
Well, After I got all the mud/crap cleaned off and engine pulled/cleaned up.
Fuse is cut out and wires twisted (oh my..)
Rear stator cover is taken off (supposively stator went bad, I have 2 covers/2 stators, Duno which one is the 'good one'.
Whoever did the work looked like they worked in a gravel driveway, theres pieces of junk all over the flywheel...
The engine is out, I dont believe its swapped (havent turned it over or anything).
What can I do to 'check' to see if its any good without re installing and seeing what happens?
I have $200 in it, I think I can split the cases rebuild it and still be money ahead.
Going to put bolts/honda pop rivits back in plastics/bolt down racks,weld the bumper (broken). Maybe throw some armor all on it
Clean the motor out. Clean tank/petcock/carberator.
Still need tips on how to see if motor is any count.
And it has really nice tires on the back, probably new dirt devils!
Ok here are the pictures.
