PostSubject: motor is not looking good guys..   Tue Jun 23, 2009 8:02 pm

i might be out racing for a while happened at a bad time but ever since wilburns my bike has been acting messed up runs like crap.. i was getting ready to get my c-locks on today and my bike would barely run 20mph wide open parked it got off of it reved it up trying to clear it out and it blew oil from the front cyclinder all the way up to the top of the air box.. now im trying to figure out wtf im gonna do if its not hurt really bad its still has to have an oil leak which means i gotta pull it out so i might as well have it built so it will be probably next season untill i can race if this is the case ill let you all know and im sorry about this boot i hate to let the team down but if its bad i cannot get it fixed that fast the wife would be up my butt majorly if i just drop 2k on a motor rebuild...

Might just be a blown head gasket, may not be the fix you want in the end, but shouldn't be all that bad to just replace the top end gaskets. (Head, intake, & exhaust) Just as long as the piston and cylinder wall isn't in bad shape, I'd just put gaskets on it till your financially ready to do the built motor.

Don't think you should have to pull the motor to get to the heads, but everything on top of it plastics, tank, etc, will most likely have to be removed. But once you get the heads off, be sure to check the pistons and cylinder walls to make sure a total rebuild is not needed. The hardest thing at that point would be turning the motor over manually. I don't think you'll have too much trouble, just take it one step at a time.

be sure the cylinder walls are not scarred or scratched, little small lines are ok as long as you cant hang your fingernail in them...turning the engine over will not be hard all you have to do is take the recoil rope off and turn it with a ratchet

Thumb Hopefully we will have enough to make a decent race....I really think the first one will be slow...but once they see pics and things like that the second one will pick up. I wish I have enough money to advertise it on the radio... Laughing Laughing

shall do drew ill have to hit you up when im getting ready to tear it apart honestly whats your opinion would you go ahead and put some goodies in it since you have to pull the cyclinder anyway??? i have a set of cyclinders here i could send off and get the 840's for probably around 400.00 which isnt bad then all i would need is a good set of cams to go with them... i heard messing with cam's is not alot of fun though...

umm just to check the head gasket you will not have to pull the jug off...web cams are a + i agree with boot on that one there are alot of people who run webs......that only hard part about taking the head off is keepin the motor in time, just installin cams is no biggie what so ever, i had mine in abour 3 hours, just have to make sure your at top dead center and all your timing marks are lined up, but if you drop your timing chain and it comes off the timing gear you will have to dig deep into the motor and would be a major PITA!!!!!! but more than likely if your head gasket was blowed or goin bad you will have coolant in your oil..as for as the 840 HECK YEA that would be BA...but if you havent messed with engines that much i would take it to somebody who has just to insure the timing is right bc if its out + or - one tooth it will run like crap or will burn really lean and burn it up, but if its out real bad you will bend valves knock holes in your piston or bend your connectin rods.....

have not figured out where its blowing oil from yet but i have figured out why it was running like crap at wilborns and when i got home.. the slide for the front cyclinder was stuck now its running good not quite how it was before but im sure that front cyclinder is still full of fuel if i had to guess... i knew it was running off of one cyclinder just didnt know why until now.. lol.. i ran that whole bog in wilborns basically off of one cyclinder.. i think in wilborns race the slide was stuck about half or so cause it ran worse when i got it home but like i told shawn down there i knew something wasnt right my bike had hardly any power it would launch good then fall on its face... man im glad i figured it out finally now to the oil leak...lol

Glad you figured it out, mine needs rings I hope anyway. It has very little compression and is blowing smoke out the tail pipe. Right now is a bad time, with T-ball and vacation coming up, and money is real tight. Hopefully get it tore down this weekend and see where I'm at.

Hawthorn juice will bring that blood pressure down.
Get Flora Hawthorn with hibiscus and passion flower.
Consult Doc first .He may say its ok to take but it wont work , trust me it will work .
Has been used for years to bring body builders blood pressure down when they are all jacked up.
My resting BP is 110 over 70 and i credit that to Hawthorn.
And thats the average taken over 2 year period.
It was nearly 170 over 90.

Oh and good luck with the engine.
