Re: Oil not getting to right cylinder head

OK, everyone's agreed that using the grease was a "bad choice", and may be the cause of my problem. I need to pull the engine back apart, as soon as I can make garage space again and clean it all out. Bugger. What's a good grease-remover for a "poverty-rider" to use inside the engine? I've been usin...

Re: Oil not getting to right cylinder head

Just so people are clear, my bike is a dnepr MT9, NOT a ural. I mention this because that tappet and tappet guide above does not look at all familiar. I didn't address how the oil gets into the crankshaft, which I assume is via magic, but the two journals each have a hole in them. I assume this is t...

A google-translate: Ural motorcycle lubrication system I really want to hope that by reading this material, you will not only learn all the mysterious ways of oil movement through invisible channels, but also find your own (maybe a little different from the “instruction manual”) opinion about which ...

Re: Oil not getting to right cylinder head

Do you mean the hole down the bottom? Doesn't that just allow oil out?

Re: Oil not getting to right cylinder head

I'd just make sure all orifices are clear.....if oid comes in via the valve pushers it has to go out some way and that's worth checking it's clear and a bit of sealer or gasket hasn't blocked it. Thought of that after posting, and pulled the cylinder out enough to pull out the sliders. The silders ...

Oil not getting to right cylinder head

OK, I've finally rebuilt my bike after snapping the crankshaft, and I'm feeling quite pleased with myself because it's starting with one kick and idling quite happily (if a bit fast. Adjusting the carbs is on the agenda). I'm particularly pleased with myself because I took the opportunity to complet...

Re: Snapped crank shaft

The guy who sold me the crankshaft was surprised by the undersizing, and the best theory he can come up with was that the Loyal Soviet Comrade Worker! had hit the vodka a bit hard that day. I find this theory eminently believable. Comrade probably had quotas to fill. His solution is to send me (free...

Re: Snapped crank shaft

OK, so I've gotten my new crank shaft, installed it in, and then noticed while playing with it a HUGE amount of slop between the big ends and crank pins. So pulled it all out again (swearing), and measured things up (wouldn't it have been wonderful to have done that BEFORE putting it in in the first...

Re: Snapped crank shaft

OK, so I've removed the engine. It turns out that the engine is light enough for one moderately fit and strong adult to carry any reasonable distance (with oil drained and gearbox already removed. No promises otherwise). My method, for those wanting to know, was to support the weight of the engine w...

Re: Snapped crank shaft

You may have broken the crank but it could also be that the flywheel retaining bolt loosened up, causing the flywheel to come loose from the taper allowing it to wobble. Either way you need to start by removing the transmission and clutch. Happy trails, Jaybird I would have really loved that to be ...

Snapped crank shaft

Least, I assume it is. I got as far as removing the gearbox before I lost the light, but the clutch (which is, PS, screwed) is all wibbley-wobbley--the entire, bolted together unit, that is (didn't do the casing to the gearbox much good, either). Got the previous issues sorted, organised to get an e...
