Re: 750 crankshaft installation

And just for the record...that “hammered” engine still runs like a top 😉 For what it's worth, I haven't installed a front bearing, but your instructions did not work for me installing the rear bearing carrier plate on my '02. Hammering it in drives the whole crank forward and the front bearing out ...

Re: 750 crankshaft installation

Have you visited MyUral.com yet? http://myural.com/installing_crankshaft.htm Haven't we determined that the procedure on MyUral is based on the 650 motor which captures the bearing differently, and therefore dangerously incorrect? https://www.sovietsteeds.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=56392 That's...

Re: CL Find - IKEA Ural?

Inflation will do it, but dude will need to live to the age of Methusaleh to sell it for that price.

I gave more away to Chad just because he showed up with a truck :)

Re: Hard starting '14.

I've now been able to kickstart my '14 cold in temperatures down to the 40's. Sometimes, it starts on the first kick!

One thing I notice when I kickstart it that it doesn't stall out as many times before maintaining an idle than when I start it using the electric starter.

Re: Rear crank bearing carrier installation woes.

Thanks to our friends at McMaster-Carr, I now have the raw materials needed to make a Sergei tool or two:

Re: How do YOU kick start your Ural?

Any easy fix for kickstart lever no longer engaging? This is a recent problem, although the machine isn't getting as much useage as it had been. It will engage perhaps 1 out of 20 pushes on the lever. I have always at least kicked it through a couple of times, even if using the e-start. Sounds like...

Here is a video from Eugene Bykovsky, who also uses a tool to pull (650) crank in. No hitting with hammer. Can this help?:
Not quite, that's the wrong end. I actually have the factory tool for that part.

Re: Rear crank bearing carrier installation woes.

I'll keep you posted. What's clear is that the procedure at myural.com is incorrect: http://myural.com/installing_the_crankshaft_rear_main_bearing.htm Doing it this way will push the crank forward just as I experienced here. I was lucky that the jugs were removed or I could have tweaked the crank ar...

Re: Rear crank bearing carrier installation woes.

I did try heating the bearing but it didn't help much because I did not immobilize the crank. Based on Van's feedback and the video above, I ordered a 300mm M24x2.0 threaded rod and some nuts from McMaster-Carr. This will be enough to make two tools for immobilizing the crank while installing the be...

Re: Rear crank bearing carrier installation woes.

I'm confused. Do I need to remove the crank fully, press the bearing plate onto the rear, and then pull the crank back into the front of the motor with the rear already installed? Is it not possible on the 750 to replace the rear bearing without removing the crank? EDIT: Okay, yes, I see now, watchi...

Re: Rear crank bearing carrier installation woes.

The crank is already installed. I'm just trying to get the rear bearing plate back on after replacing the bearing. The problem is that putting pressure on the bearing pushes the crank forward and out of position. It seems that I need some way of either immobilizing the crank to prevent it from movin...

Rear crank bearing carrier installation woes.

I'm having a hard time getting the bearing plate on my '02 750 to seat without pushing the crank forward. I don't remember having this problem working on my 650's. I see some old threads with gobium mentioning building a "crank locking tool", and videos being referenced that are no longer viewable p...

Re: 2014 GEAR-UP $9990 local Craigslist not mine...

As an owner of an asphalt grey 2014, I would take a good hard look at the powdercoat on that rig, especially where the sun don't shine.
