GT750 Re-assembly begins
« on: April 13, 2020, 07:04:35 PM »
Easter Weekend, 2020

All parts on the 'J' are now fixed, fiddled, polished and repaired.  Now the re-assembly begins.  The first step was to schlep all the parts upstairs and put them in the Garage (now that the snow is finally starting to melt).  My wife not only bakes good cookies, but is willing to help carry the occasional engine up some stairs.   The engine was carried in a cradle.  The photos tell the rest.







I used some foam packing (that was packed around new kitchen fan that we bought last year) as dunnage to pad the engine when I laid it on its side. 




I mounted the engine-frame on an 'ATV lift' that i bought on sale a few years back but have never used.  (Zip tied the frame to the lift) so now i can roll the assembly around.




Tires leak checked and balanced (each needed 1/4 ounce).

Nice.  Remember the engine oil......
I live with fear and danger everyday, but sometimes I leave her at home and go motorcycling.
