    Chaz, not checked the history mate. All i Know so far is, it ended up in Belgium where I bought it. But by the relay it had been to Russia. I imagine it started there and then ended up in Belgium. Just a guess though.

    Re: 45 Rebuild

    There is a guy at HD called Peter Simett, in the archive dept, that may be able to shed some light on it. I have spoken to him once and found him reluctantly helpful if you get my drift. Maybe worth a try, he will of course need the numbers.
    If you want I could try and find his contact details.

    If you can dig them out then it may be worth a try, would be nice to see where it ended up.

    I'm the same as most, love this thread and learning loads. The Ebay bloke in India has got very good feedback. Although you don't know how they will perform when they have worked hard for a few thousand miles.

    Now the decision is made on the way to go, next steps were to check out the rest of the engine parts to see what was worth salvaging. The crank cases both required new bearing races and cam bushes.

    Both needed a good clean up.

    I took the bushings out of this one to help with the clean.

    To help get the cylinder studs out, I applied a little heat, makes it so much easier.

    Doubled up two nuts and unwound the studs.

    One of the studs on the scavenger pump had snapped of in the crank case, another item to add to the list of jobs to do.

    Took the top of the oil strainer and snipped the pin in the middle, all helped with the clean up.

    Hard to tell from this pic, but the last owner had soldered in the woodruff key to the shaft. Managed to apply some heat and remover the solder, only to find the pump had been damaged.

    Various Dimensions were taken, so Leigh could make up some drivers to push the bearing races and cam bushings out.
