I had some pics lined out to start another thread on a 125. Found this locally and wanted to get another one for the kids after I sold the previous 86 125. This one will be a total restoration. Disassembly has gone ok. Should remove the engine this weekend. Tomorrow I'll put up some more pictures of where I'm at.
Here are some other pics from this weeks disassembly. Hopefully by Friday night I'll have the engine out and be down to the bare frame. I've got to see whats wrong with the motor. I got 2 motors with this (however the other one is fully taken apart. LOL. However, it'll be a good hands on engine to look at and reference to, for the most part).
Yes, my son has been wrenching with me and learning what tools are what and why we do things in a certain order. LOL. My daughter (this one is hers) will get the job of degreasing it and part of painting as well. LOL. HOWEVER, she's got the great job of doing her chores and earning her money to purchase parts that we need for the TRX. Responsibility and accountabilty. You work hard and once you have them to take care of them. So thats her main job on this one. Teach them a trade and hard work. I'm trying to learn as well. Hopefully they'll be smarter than me. LOL
Well, didn't get much done last night. Pretty busy night with the familia. Anyway, looking through the parts boxes that I was giving when I bought the trx125 i came across a couple missing pieces that weren't attached. I believe the originals were sold, hence, them not being on the TRX. They are rough, and I'm sure they've been exposed to whether. I was curious if the stator is salvagable or if If I'm up the creek. Thanks
Ok. Got a little bit done yesterday. Got a whole bunch of gears in a pickle bucket that hopefully parts washer solvent will remove the rust from. Got into a mess that hopefully one of you can give me an alt way of getting the bearings out. Plus, my rear brake drum, I can't find the O Ring and having a hard time getting the outer drum off. LOL. Breakdown is near complete then my daughter gets the glorious task of cleaning off the entire frame, plus sanding it. Ahhhh. LOL And thats the pickle. 1056. Parts machine and original motor.
Have a great one. Enjoy my headache. LOL
Having a hard time getting the rear drum brake off. I got the outer assembly off, but I can't find and can't see the O ring. So, trying to figure out a way to get to that. Then I can see what the pads look like.
The brake drums are a PITA sometimes. Will the cam rotate at all or is it seized?
I had a 350D brake assembly last week that was seized and the drum would not come off. I was making a brake delete out of it anyway so I cut it up/ smashed it with a hammer. I don't think I could have gotten it apart in once piece.
The 350D stuff I was working on was a backing plate, drum, and drum cover that wasn't on the axle anymore. I think it would be easier to get the drum off the pads with the axle there to hold it in place, unless the drum is seized on the axle splines and not the pads.
