nice job.

I just dropped off my new billet basket and a used eBay '83 CR250 basket. I need the rivets removed so I can reuse the gear off it and that center spline piece pressed out and pressed into the new billet basket.

I dropped it off at Carlos Serrano's shop in S Tucson. He was at his shop bench rebuilding a couple engines...His son races his old Maico with AVDRA sometimes.

I've done 3 of those now, it takes some serious tonnage to press that hub in there, almost scary 😬

I have a proper single-jack drilling hammer, 48oz is the perfect weight for adjusting things. Some guys can handle a 4lb jack, but for me 3lb is the sweet spot for head speed. 

I figured this was more your size.image.png.21d4a8c8cabc7fe8cac30d2a748356d5.png

I don't have the tools to do that level of repair. I'm trying to use a few different local shops to see what they are good at doing. Everyone seems busy. Fingers crossed.

I have a few choices for clutch plates and fibers for the '83. I can get OEM...not cheap. I can get Barnett or EBC...also not cheap or TUSK... I think the OEM plates may be aluminum, at least they were for my '88.

I just grind off rivets and punch out and I bought a harbor freight 20 ton press on sale for $130, not bad of a job.

I ran those tusk plates before, they get hot and spongy quick, bad enough I put my old oem back in.

I believe kevin likes those barnett's

Monday!

I'm "retired" (aka unemployed), but my loving, still-working wife never let's me forget when it's Monday.
