DT175MX 1978 Build

Recommended Posts

I've bought an 'unfinished project' as building one from scratch was going to take too long despite my having collected most of the parts... I might start that after this one if I still have the will to live. 😄

I've got engine work to do. Have done one side, fitted side case and auto lube which was missing when I got it.  On the flywheel side the stator wiring is missing a plug and I really dont want to cut the new loom so it's flywheel off to get to the stator.

Flywheel came off easily and obviously wasn't torqued up. Then when I took the stator off the screws were barely hand tight, every single casing screw is loose with many of the heads chewed. Thankfully I have a set of new casing screws for it. Got me worried what the inside of the engine is like though as it's obviously been apart... 😣

That's how the stator was fitted, there's a line on the stator plate and engine casing. Am assuming they're timing marks? They weren't even lined up. So glad I haven't tried to start this without doing much to it.

Onwards to victory... 😎
