The bad idle was caused by wrong pilot jets and bad ignition timing, it’s running heaps better now!
First ride, just in the yard as the front brakes are missing.
I’m assembling an engine that arrived to me as a basket case, most parts in labeled bags but a few just floating around.
The crankcase is together, all gears select, clutch seems to be working, primary gear on, oil pump on and driven.
Basically ready to replace pistons and cylinder block.
But I’ve got this one shim remaining and it worries me.
Its outer diameter is 54mm, inner is 40mm and it’s 1mm thick.
Any idea of where it should go?
The engine is from a 1976 XS750.
