Re: WTB flathead Ural/Dnepr/CJ in military trim, California

Thanks for the leads, everyone. The MV above has been sold and the Dnepr is very pricey for what it is. I am still looking and open to shipping as long as it has a current US title. Just a warning, watch the mileage on anything you bring into California. Under 7500 miles (12070 km) and they will re...

Teaching my girls

So I started teaching my girls (10 and 12 years old) how to work on things. We are starting out with working on getting my old vespa running again. Figure that would be easiest. It hasn't run in about 8 years. It's actually been fun showing them the bits that I know and it'll be nice having them fai...

Re: Drive shaft rub

I agree with checking the donut, but I would also take a good look at the swing arm bushings/bearings. Happy trails, Jaybird I checked the donut and it looks good. Neither the old one or the new shows any kind of tear. I looked at the swing arm and don't see the rubber from the bushing pushing out ...

Re: Drive shaft rub

I'll pull off the final drive and inspect the donut. It's a brand new one that i just got with the driveshaft, didn't think to suspect it. Thanks for the idea.

Re: Drive shaft rub

Yes, the top pic is the old drive shaft, that line around it at the ujoint area is from where it was hitting the frame. Yes, it's tight down at the final drive. I also pulled the final drive off and there is no slop in it at all.

Re: Drive shaft rub

More photos of the entire set up might be helpful. No latent rust on the frame so it looks like a recent development. What all did you change out? The teeth on the spline where gone so I replaced the donut, fork and drive shaft. The top pic is of the old drive shaft so I know it's not a new drive s...

Drive shaft rub

Anyone with an old drive shaft setup have it rub on the frame? I didn't notice until I switched out the driveshaft but it's rubbing against the frame. It was doing it with the old one as well, I can tell from the marks. 20191112_111619.jpg 20191105_135454.jpg Once I knew what was going on I can feel...

Center Stand? ... Doh

I was troubleshooting a problem with my drive shaft and also switched out my pusher as the treads are just about gone. I adjusted the brakes after I put the new pusher on and dropped it off the center stand. Then I spent at least 10 minutes troubleshooting an awful grinding sound I'd hear when I'd p...

Re: Did you ride today?

Took the kids out for a bit longer than normal ride, about 1 1/2 hours round trip up to Laguna Beach and back. Beautiful day out today so extended the ride a bit. Think I found a decent spot for my camera on the sidecar, everywhere else it jerks around so much the video is unwatchable. https://youtu...

I don't mind the breaks as long as you're not trying to sell me a civil war chess set one piece a month.

Re: One issue fixed, new one pops up

Thanks Jeff, I can picture it in my head, makes sense. I guess it can't hurt to play around and try to fix it, wasn't going to use it anyway :) I'll see if I can get the solenoid off tomorrow. I tried to take the starter off today but the bottom bolt is junk, it was on so tight that the inside allen...

Re: One issue fixed, new one pops up

Thanks guys, it is the solenoid. I disconnected all the wires from the battery and solenoid, touched one wire from the battery to the solenoid positive terminal and it tried to crank over. I could try to tap it and see if it'll break loose but I wouldn't trust it so I'll just leave it disconnected a...

One issue fixed, new one pops up

So I get my new driveshaft in the mail. Thank you so much malamut for selling me that one you picked up from Albuquralque. I get the new driveshaft in, bolt up the final drive and throw the tire back on. Give it a kick then turn on the key and hit the starter, I hear a crunch and the starter starts ...
