Russian Bike Nut

Russian Bike Nut (3/3)

  1. Nice! How many miles since rebuild? Part code for Nissan pistons (who made them)? Issues?
  2. The tube going from the back to the front of the engine is the oil feed line. In the front, the oil goes up through a vertical oil passage and out through the tiny hole you have pictured and because it can't go anywhere else (it can't go through the bearing outer wall, right??) it will flow through the rounded opening you see in the picture and feed the front oil slinger (lubricating right side connecting rod). Same thing happens at the rear of the engine for the left side connecting rod. Sometimes using mismatched parts and not verifying if the hole in the rear bearing carrier alligns to the oil passage in the engine case (thicker gasekets...) can lead to oil starvation of the left side rod. The pipe going from the front to the rear of the engine case sometimes ROTATES and the front passage gets closed (at the front the pipe is not straight cut) . Make sure the pipe did not rotate and is in the right position. Compressed air while engine case is empty might be usefull. Secure the oil pipe with a proper fixing bolt inserted from the bottom of the case (oil pan off). Throw away the OEM fixing bolt and calculate the apropriate length for the one who WILL do the job. Probably 1-2mm longer will be ok.
  3. Thanks, but no, thanks For that money I will probably sell my M72; or two...
  4. Interesting bike... how much?
  5. OK, I will look again for what do u need. Buzz me on ym if u want, tonight
  6. hahahahaa, cool! I work for the romanian importer of SBS (among others brands) but I was lasy enough not to check the equivalent brake pads for my solo. THANK YOU!
  7. I will ask a friend from Dej. Don't have any ideea for now. If he has time, he can help you, he has the know-how FOR SURE!
  8. AHH!!! Damn it! damn romanians always fixing things with hammers :thumbsup!: I know I'm guilty of that! Thanks valicaddy, now I for sure have to replace the crank Vasile No, you don't. Take it off and then you will see exactly how good it is.
  9. But putting a 750 OHV crank will make a lot of sense hence the market is flodded with beautiful chinese quality parts. I already have an obsession about how to do that... I dream about a "bullet proof" M72 engine with NEW parts.... :thumbsup!:
  10. You have a regular 750 crank repeteadly hit with a hammer, which is not a good thing (picture 3).
  11. Hard to sell overseas. Try locally.
  12. check this movie. the pulley is in the sidecar, now it works perfectly. I have a nippon denso driven by a false dynamo and a small belt. dunno about gear box, people tried around here, but the result was not so good. waste of time.
  13. cylinders and matching pistons are available from time to time brand new. (K750). buy them, don't waist the time. K37? hard to say... gasket set is available in romania for about 10$. best quality gasket set is available at motorrad-stemler.de (BMW R71) for about 100EUR. I ordered head gaskets from them, I will tell you how they look when they will arrive. flywheel I have bowden cables - also available for bmw and so on, u can also make them. complete wiring - ready in 45 minutes if you have a good "electrician" original lights are hard to find. if you mean "becuri" than it's not a problem. when do you come in romania?
  14. ha, the last piese of my Ducati ignition finnaly arrived. I hope I will be as satisfied as you.
