    oops please help!!!!

    I have had a bad day was out on my 2004 TE 510 when this big tree jumped out in front of me!!!! honest. Lot of damage the worst being a big crack in my cylinder block it is beyond repair so to the big question where do i get one from n how much is one? tried to tig weld it but it just let water out! It is where you bolt the barrel to the head front end. Keep eyes open for fast moving trees:bonk:

    husaqvara te 510 2004 engine overhaul.

    Thanks ricky have checked valves they look like new so will regrind n replace rubbers! I now have the engine in lots of pieces the clanking noise is 6th gear one has lost 5 teeth the other 6th gear is mangled! so been on the phone to motosupplies thanks for the contact again. Great help sorting out parts for me:thumbsup: One member said i would be able to leave the clutch side together doing this gearbox overhaul well let me just say to inspect yes you can but if you need any parts replacing you will have to remove the clutch to take out the gear shafts! As i have said this is my first engine overhaul am enjoying doing it myself with the workshop manual on CD its very easy to follow so to you all get your hands dirty more!!!!

    husaqvara te 510 2004 gearbox

    I have been in touch with motosupplies which was a great help i only need to replace the head gasket the rest a reuseable! They also can supply me with second hand parts too brill i thought!then there is the question reliability i will give that more thought once i know what parts i need! Now i like the idea of not touching clutch n oil pump side is this possible? This is my first bottom end rebuild so its all a bit daunting have got the worshop manual on cd so it should be idiot proof
  8. help required! I recently required a 2004 te510 with 3000 miles on the clock sounded great n ran like a dream untill last weekend! something went clank in my gearbox it still goes into every gear but clanks when power put on! I have started to break engine down am now waiting for flywheel puller to arrive. Thank god for ebay 20 pounds to my door! husqvarna £44 no thanks,anyway as i wait all these question keep springing into my head as to what should i replace n what i can afford! please give me advice on where to start i dont want to be doing the bottom end again soon! If it comes down to money then will sell the wife! Sorry i put similar post somewhere else thanks to the member who pointed this out!!

I pulled the clutch in n hit the kill switch,started bike in neutral no noise thought what was that and begun to wonder put into 1st gear moved of 2nd,3rd twisted the throttle noise again! chugged home in 4th took chain of tried to spin front spocket in neutral n it locks up give it a wiggle and it spins for a few revolutions and sticks again. I know thats not right started bike tried all gears goes in fine but horrible clanking noise! So all you helpfull husky owners please can you give me some ideas?
