What not to do when rebuilding (any) engine...(Have a few laughs!)

Recommended Posts

Alright, so most of you know from my last 4 threads that I'm rebuilding my motor.

Please read all of this before clicking the pictures...It's so much better.

So I'm as organized as any 16 year old could be when building things. I have ALL my bolts lined up, Everything is clean, and my tools are organized.

This is my first motor rebuild as far as a race motor is concerned.

Since I have to wait on my valves being put in, I decided to put my new piston and rings in, and put the cylinder on so the crank wasn't exposed anymore.

Well I get that all done, then disaster strikes!!!

Alright, Ripped apart motor...Put new piston and cylinder on

Organized bolts and parts in a nice clean safe drawer

Tool box tipping over and $%^& going EVERYWHERE...

I think I said swear's that aren't even words... :banghead:

Well it's all cleaned up after 4 hours...everythings accounted for and nothings broken. So all I can do is sit back and laugh!!! :applause:🤣🤣

I would of just stood there in shock for a few days...

Guess my anal habbit of closing each drawer when not in use is a good one, bugs my friends when we are both working on our bikes.

Glad everything was found and nothing broke!

I actually bolted my tool boxes to the bottom of my work bench. I did it to keep them from getting ripped off, but now I can see the added value to prevent tip-overs...

Do you see how bad smoking and smoking paraphernalia is for you. If only you had listened to the surgeon general. :banghead: Glad nothing was lost or broke.

I have a different approach that works well if you have the space, I have a workbench to put the big stuff on, a rolling toolbox in the corner to STORE tools, and a rooling cart that has some divisions that I use to hold the tools in use and small parts
