...in the meantime I re polished the cases, etc. I have a friend who s a jeweller, so I asked to use his small polish machine to do the job.

Also the polish shop forgot to sand and polish a part from the driving crankcase so I ll do in next days.

First I worked the stuff with those compounds that look like a candle, but scratched the surface too much; possibly because I sanded to 2500!
then I worked with the pastes that I use for the surfboards and was all good without marks, etc

...hello,
so I m cleaning the cases to put the bearings.
I ll put a 3 piece roller bearing as fitted in the mid 80s Bonnies.
I have a question about the "washer" piece of the bearing to what side is fitted...I mean is to the case or to the crankshaft or even between the inner cage and the rollers?

Hope some one can help about it

thanks

The inner race goes on the crank with the lip towards the cheek, and the "washer" goes in the case BEFORE you install the outer race. I'll try to post a photo.

...ok, so in the future, if I pull out the crank only the inner race stay in the crank, the other 2 parts will un move in the case.

Cool if you have pictures to post too.

thanks Eric

reverb,
check out northern eagle cycles. they have probably all of the precise head hardware you need. if you have questions , the owners name is Dennis, he's a straight shooter. I have a 140 E and a 140 D. that practically makes us related, kidding , good luck, coming along nicely.

Mine had letters but they were facing the inside of the timing case.
Timing was references by a series of dots and dashes. Dont know about other year cams, possibly a different duration, there were three different options in 79 alone, good luck hope the photos help.

+1 on Norther Eagle Cycles. I have ordered a fair amount from them this year and shipping is always fast. Another place you may want to check is British Cycle Supply. Super helpful and have an impressive stock list. They ship out of Canada and the US, which ever side of the border you are on.

...Hello Pkcoon, thanks man, I ll update the blog sooner too.

Hello Ski, talking about the head hardware, I solved that some weeks ago, but I have a question to you about the ones that hold both cases on the bottom. Are they bolts? or are studs?

by the way, I do not have problems with the timing...yet.

thanks in advance

Hey Swiseman, I m a Brit cycle customer from pre commercial internet, thanks

...ok Ski, hope is not ask too much if you can check in the bottom of your T140E in which holes go the studs and in which the bolts?
As you know, there are 3 5/16" holes and then a big 7/16".

thanks

the 7/16 at the bottom is a stud and spacers that act as a motor mount
the other 7/16 is a bolt that is a mount on the downtubes
not entirely sure itf the exaust steadys are a stud or bolts
the rest of them 3/16 are bolts
I think , see attached

Reverb,
I promised you pictures of a timing side roller bearing conversion:

Here's the inner race on a crank:



And the outer race/washer from the outside of the case:



And the inside of the case:

...hello Ski and Eric, very helpful; thank you very much.

-Ski, about the bolts and studs, now with the pictures is better to understand, for ex.: the spacers on that bottom stud, because in the parts book the draw in page 46 fig 18 is not right and there s a bolt not a stud (but the part number is for a stud) and 1 spacer (right say) is showed not both ?; the other spacer is showed as a thicker washer...so was complicated to know exactly the positions.
Also, in the same page there s a bolt (7/16 x 4) that say "motor fixing front" that have that big spacer (left say) and the right spacer is like the other, a thicker washer ?
Where s the place of that bolt? because all seems 5/16"
