I'd do the ol' clean-n-test, but I enjoy projects like that (probably why I bought a rusty, broken-down 1999 Tourist :wink: ).

Just clean with electrical cleaner and wire brush. Never messed with rebuilding a alternator. Much less cracking one open and cleaning one [emoji38]

Neither of them are terribly complicated. You've GOT this! :thumbsup:

Any progress? I'm interested because my dead Ural purchase is somewhat progressing and I need to not feel alone in my frustration

Updates will be soon I hope......

Realized that trying to rebuild this thing in a Morgan building (small) is aggravating as all git out.
So moving my mini mill stuff in there so I can bring the frame in the Garage (it as climate control too :) )
So swapping shops out now and almost done....so hopefully more progress soon. (I did say in the first post it would be a LONG process) :lol:

Thanks for all that are interested

Cleaning up and orginizing it all this weekend so hopefully can start doing little bit of this and that to the build.

But first My 750 has a more than normal :lol: oil leak that needs to be addressed


Here's a pic of the engine that has been soaking in a bath since the beginning of this thread basically.

I may have missed it, but do you have a title for the frame?
That would certainly be a deciding factor for me, whether or not it's fixer or a parts donor.

But to answer the question, it will have a custom title.

.

Louisiana must be more generous with custom/reconstructed titles than New Jersey and most other states.
What it would cost here to get a custom/reconstructed title would far exceed the value of a 1995 Ural solo, no matter how much "lipstick" someone where to smear on it.
Good luck with your project :cheers:

We do have better laws than most states. And from what I am told it's not that much...I wanna say my buddy that builds Rat Rods for guys around here told me like $25. :o

Also it's not a solo, it has the mounts for the sidecar. :wink:
