Oops, reinstalled that bearing backwards.
SmllMedLrg
I can't see why it would matter that it is backwards, it didn't fully seat so it is coming back out
SmllMedLrg
replacing this tiny needle bearing also

that backwards bearing didn't fully seat so I couldn't get the case half back together
SmllMedLrg
I knocked the bearing out, and dumped it in pure acetone and dry ice
SmllMedLrg
I applied a torch to the case. The bearing didn't just drop in like I hoped, but it did fully seat

These rods were supposed to be new but one has major rust
SmllMedLrg
that doesn't look like a new part to me. I tossed this rod and used the better of the two old ones

the kick starter is rusty and always let the look of the bike down

the engine case was looking gnarly, good time to bead blast and powder coat it

I am going to attempt to apply blue powder over top of the existing silver powder
SmllMedLrg
SmllMedLrg
SmllMedLrg
SmllMedLrg
Blue powder applied to the clutch side case
SmllMedLrg
I tried using q tips to remove the powder from the recessed area, it was not producing clean lines
SmllMedLrg
SmllMedLrg
So I removed all the powder, started over, and just powder coated the entire thing blue
SmllMedLrg
curing in the oven
SmllMedLrg
SmllMedLrg
On the other case I couldn't get the blue powder to static cling on top of the silver powder :(
SmllMedLrg
No more powder for this case half, it will continue looking just like this
SmllMedLrg
The blue has cured on the clutch case half
SmllMedLrg
SmllMedLrg
kickstarter powdercoated
SmllMedLrg

clutch case looks pretty good. The white should be durable as it is recessed and protected
