  1. Is that two per rod Mike or two total?. Because my bike was a virgin as far as anybody putting there pecker paws on it and it had four total spacers/bushings. Not saying that I remember there orientation but I always make it a habit on disassembly to keep bolts ,nuts,washers with there respective counterparts.and the bushings were all on they're respective rods.
  2. Intetesting that you should bring this subject up. I too had the same conumdrum (hope i spelled that wight). I lined the driveline up as straight as possible with centerline from rear diff to trans output.Seemed logical so as to minimize vibration.The spacers were just as perplexing. But thinking back i believe the front rod had two spacers on the outside of the frame to distance and line up the exhaust hanging brackets. Might be wrong but sure seems to fit right. Sure somebody smarter here could tell us both whether thats correct or not.The wonderful thing about beer is it makes the darndest

    😀 Does anybody who actually tows the line vote count? Everyone should have to watch the old animation movie of Animal Farm lest we forget . Enough said!!!!!!!! Cant wait to see the pigs get there comuppings.
  4. For sale frame fenders forks fuel tank and rear differential. Craigslist Denver Colo. 400$ Bones for anyone interested.NO TITLE. Seems a little much. But you decide.
  5. Went into the mountains to look at a old guzzi frame,and found two clamshell wheels and tires with nice chrome for 30 greenbacks a piece. Feeling very good.Even the tires are good though ill probably get larger.
  6. WTB dnepr rear fender rack, for solo bike. Not a ural please( not sure how much of a diff there is that might cause it to look slanted forward or backward.And would be interested in a sidecar rear rack. Not tire mounted.
  7. I too had exception with pins, seems they had a few nicks in them causing the plate to hang up. Would strongly suggest running a clean out tap down them prior to assembly. And when installing the screws (with a small drop of loctite)dont hit the hammer driver too hard. It definitely can move the position of the pin making the clutch loaded too tight in that area.Others may not use a hammer driver. I like to be sure they arent coming out.
  8. Phoenix craigslist ad , under motorcycle parts. 6 ural stainless and chrome mufflers for 100 greenbacks. 4 of which are threaded and 2 are slip ons. Hope that helps someone. Seems like a good deal if your from the great white land of snow and salt.
  9. Hello Duke,,,, Is the rally/swap in pueblo still on for this weekend?
  10. Feels good to get to the top of the mountain{ trials} and coast down the other side doesn't it? Wish you well.
  11. Was it necessary to seat the brushes? Or were they relatively soft? As a kid I worked in a small electrical motor repair shop. We routinely turned armatures and would put them on a growler to see if there were any lugs that needed re soldering. When we would install new brushes if they were a hard material we would have to run the motor on the bench while we inserted a white abrasive stone against the commutator just in front of a brush to seat it to the correct circumference of the commutator. If they were soft they usually seated themselves rather quickly with little or no arcing. Was pretty
  12. Hello Vance,,,,,got a question for ya if your up to it. Been doing a little research and it seems your in the know.
  13. Hello All. Almost feels like spring might be early this year here. [Fingers crossed]. I have been reassembling this nipper and had most of the frame components powder coated so there was a delay in getting the parts back. Cant remember the placement of the oring in the front forks reseal kits. The book shows it on top of the gland washer under the flange nut. But I saw a youtube video, and he placed it under the upper tube bushing. Not sure whats right. Tried the books layout first, but doesn't seem good to me. Any thoughts????
  14. Thanks Swede. Wasn't really sure how to interpet the whole chart. Thought they might be talking about quantity.Interesting though, that they haven't revised the tariffs for so long. Probably why the US economy is getting hurt in the world market so bad.
  15. Thanks Dave good to know so I don't have a gauge pegging the needle due to a wrong scale.. And yes I was going to run it off the light switch port with a tee and keeping the switch in the picture. Ordered a 0-100 psi liquid filled guage,,,,,hopefully comes soon. Thanks to all.
  16. Jeroen , Hope Im not confusing the issues for you. But since this is a 6v bike you will have to maintain charging voltage high enough so that the electrical systems threshold voltage isn't depleted{too low and the ignition circuit wont keep the points and coil operational} Or the bike could stall. I believe you have a generator not a magneto. What that means is if there is not high enough of a idle producing voltage through the generator then the ignition will be starved for voltage and stall.Not being there makes it hard to help adequetly. What is your charging voltage at the 1 Battery,2 Coil
  17. Anyone have a oil pressure gauge on their nipper? Was looking to buy one, but would like to know start up Max oil pressure on good tight engine so I could order one with correct scale. Thanks Sol
  18. Thanks Harley. Was looking for one closer to home,,,,,but when you have some time. Could you look into the shipping cost for the weight of the engine to Colorado , USA. And are these take out running used engines or for parts donors? Thanks Sol
  19. Oh and I almost forgot. Vance there didn't seem to be any hitch with my recent orders from Ukraine ,Poland, Estonia Or Russia other than the slow boat issue. Hope that's helpful.
  20. Thank you Klien. I may consider you for other bikes, But I have already completed the purchase in question. The size that I was most interested in was 4.10 x 19 universal tread,,,,,,NOT street tread. Which seems to be readily available over here in that size. Thanks Sol
  21. Hi All. . Just throwing this out there. Does anyone have a 750 side valve they want to sell complete or completely in pieces. Interested in hearing a price . Thanks in advance Sol
  22. Its interesting , my gear box was very porous in that same approximate spot. when I removed the shifter for tigging it was paper thin in a half inch circumference of that spot.
  23. Harley . What is the feeling over there about Russia ? NATO? .. Only know what we are told here that it is tense and of course the Ukraine invasion I am sure has got the other former Russian states worried. But is Europe holding its breath and hoping or are they calm politically. Waiting Seeing????
  24. That is how I would do them back in the seventies. The old timers at that time that I worked with would bend the contacts also as Russ said if the point gap adjustment wasn't sufficient. Keep in mind those serviceable regulators are temperature sensitive. Any adjustment should be monitored for a while afterward with the lid back on and trim adjusted accordingly. It would be really nice if they could disable the spell check feature on this site....HINT<HINT.
  25. Not knowing your particular wiring diagram it would be prudent to disconnect any wire { keeping their respective orientation} that leads back to the battery directly or through a switch. As to your coils resistance spec. you would have to research that. If it is externally mounted{resembling an old auto coil} then take your meter to an auto parts store and measure a new one if you cant get a spec. But remembering what Russ said makes the most sense. Start with the simple easy things {connections, grounds, battery test ect.} We have and old saying over here,,,its an acronym for KISS. K eep
