Re: Oil Cooler adapter sandwich

The other challenge is to find a bracket for the filter. The one in Van's picture is very nice. I know he originally fabricated one. But I'm not that adept at that, and no welder. Just drill press and hand tools. Suggestions?

Re: Rear tire

I would think either the Heid K37 or Duro 307 would be good. I used to run stock michlein's on my R60/2 rig, but that was Illinois - flat as a pancake.

Re: Music, Men ... ?

No. In those days I had to hit the books hard to stay even. Worked the airport line to make some spending money. Oiling and gassing DC-3's. Gate agent had to do the bags. Line shack had crap lights, but enough to study. Had a high school buddy (trumpet) that went with the band - never saw him after ...

Re: Back In The Saddle

Noting your comment on the battery. The only problem my '78 gave me was in the Rocky Mtn.s on a cold morning. The battery would only give a couple of turns before flat. No kickstart so run&bump before loading tent adn goodies. Might want to put one of the pocket size jump starters in your daypack. I...

On tip from gobium cleaned and re-set main ground to back of transmission, plus lots of dielectric grease to protect....

Re: Daisy's Recondition & 70,000km Service

But surely the hydraulic press would fit in the sidecar :) I looked. But did not see a safety wire tool and spool? I'm starting to wire more on my bike so I don't have to worry about some of the nuts and bolts that loosen (also it was a meet-able challenge for me). Rear drive nuts first. NEXT :pot: ...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

Did a few things over the past few days. While visiting Gobium, he welded on an engine guard. Using his band saw, and pipe bender and utilizing his extensive welding knowledge he did an excellent job. My second ad was a high mount exhaust. Love the deeper sound and it’s only slightly louder then th...

Re: failed vs. replacement final drive

If the studs/nuts/bolts loosened, and they do loosen, the rocking back and forth will very readily shear the studs or pull the threads out of the housing, especially if you're running on unimproved roads. Putting a wrench on them periodically and at least looking at them for any signs of movement d...

Re: Anyone in SWFL?

I am on the east coast. But never done a full engine teardown. Holopaw for major work. Saying that, never needed it at 45,000 km.
