More Parts Painted ….

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

More parts have been painted.  On my next visit to Seattle (in a couple days?) I will be pulling the brakes to see what I need, checking the rear end, and working on the gas tank and readying that for installation.

    Was it a good idea to paint the friction surface of the flywheel? IMO, That will clog up and glaze the clutch disk, won’t it? Hope you plan to refinish it ‘bare’ before assembly.

    Steve,
    I was wondering if someone was going to ask that. I’m concerned about the rust on the flywheel surface and how much it has damaged the surface. I’ll remove the paint and see just how many low spots there are. This flywheel may be no good.

    I’d take to the Machinist and see if it can be resurfaced/turned! You’d be surprised I think, in which direction I wouldn’t know. But keep chugging along so I can read of the adventures. I love that kinda stuff.

    If you can find a machine shop with a table grinder you will be in good shape. If it has not been ground too many times in the past, I bet you can easily clean all of the pits off the surface. I have a table grinder buried in my shop, it is just a SHORT drive down to Tucson to use it…. 🙂 LOL

    Well, now the paint will be a good indicator for the machinist to see when surface is flat. IMO, have the pressure plate surface done too for best clutch surface contact while you’re there. I agree, I love seeing the process. You’re making great progress. Thanks for sharing with us.
