haven't updated this thread apparently since my birthday! anyway, trans is now assembled and this coming sunday i will finally have a chance to install and check for shaft end play, plus some other odds and ends that need attention. this will be the first time the trans and bike have been in the same room together since last july. damn, i hope they still get along . thanks to all of you who have been there to help me out. i'll get some fresh pics up maybe sunday night...

yesterday (sunday) went well however i screwed the pooch on getting pics of the work. forgot i even brought my camera with me. anyway, first item on the list was fitting the (anti) roll pin for m.s. thrust washer. this ended up being a lot easier than it looked. i thought i was going to have a hard time due to the limited space inside the trans cavity, but that was not the case. i did have to drill a fresh hole, though. and now the pin protrudes the correct length into the cavity (3/16"). next out came the propane torch to heat the case insert for the m.s. race. spent some time with the heat on, then got the race in fairly easy. did a few other things while the race cooled - namely got my left hand control wiring extended for my "new" buckhorns - another ebay score! and hung the new brake operating rod. don't know what the old rod came off of, but the nuts for the drum end are too small for my new part so i need to visit the hardware store soon to finish that off. well the meat and potatoes of the day was measuring end play. once the trans was installed, i used a beefy ball hitch to attach my dial indicator/magnetic base to, hokey i know, but it worked. i ended up with .033 play on the main, and .058 on the counter. ordered the appropriate "shims" after getting back home. also got the big fat scar on my cam cover ground down and my engine side covers got primed and painted hammered black. here's the only eye candy i managed to get...

I didn't see this thread in the stickies, I think it should be there - it certainly answered a lot of questions for me. Thanks Doodah Man.
