Got the case full apart last night.. only thing left is the output drive shaft.. there's a giant spring on it that needs to be compressed so you can remove the snap ring holding it in place..
Either going to jimmy rig something to do that job, or bring it into a local shop and see if they'll pop it out for me.. hopefully for free since it shouldn't take more than a few seconds to do..
anyway.. pics or it didn't happen right?
one camshaft out :)
hmmm... seems like an awful lot of red shit (rust) and a LOT of carbon build up considering that judging by the grime on the outside, this cylinder was replaced sometime in the last few years (front cylinder was pretty clean on the outside, but rear cylinder had decades of grime and shit on it..)
WTF? are you shitting me? what was that your survival stash of water spot? I've never seen rust and calcium or whatever that is, combine to form a sheet like that..
aforementioned "sheet" is in the top right of this pic..
gotta find out if I can just hone the cylinder and clean up the piston face or if i'm in the market for a new P&C now :/
another shot just cause I'm a photo whore :P
Rear cylinder head looks a lot better...

Feel free to stare and admire,
but kindly tell me if it's on fire!
