SOHC Digger: Are those the 4 O-rings on the top near the nuts in this picture?
The restrictors are the little aluminum orifaces inside the o-rings next to your cam chain (two of the four mentioned o-rings)
So how heavy is that lump of a motor? Is it possible for one person to wrestle it out? (I'm guessing not.)
These four screws have completely seized up. #3 JIS impact driver not getting me anywhere. Trying some penetrating oil for the next 24 hours since I have other commitments for a bit. After that it'll be heating a rod, applying to the head of each in turn until the oil smokes, reapplying oil and letting cool before trying to remove.
You've got to watch your back in the SSDB, this is where the clever guys get bored with bike talk and make poo jokes.
By the way, it's good that you have a nice camera. The shift linkage is where I seem to have the most problems figuring out on reassembly. No diagram I have seen helps. Take good pictures in this area so you know how your springs go!
[CAUTION... EDITORIAL ALERT! ]Joan's using an Olympus c5050z which is not a bad camera but if she's half as skilled as I suspect (and she were impolite like me , she might tell you that the nice pictures have little to do with the camera and a lot to do with the person behind it. SOHC Digger - I see you're in the Chicagoland area. I'm pretty close (NW Indiana). Maybe we can catch a ride some time.
