Nice one, my guess is when they rebuilt it, they bashed the shit out of the end of the crank to get it out of the case.. Mushroomed it over, and it tore the seal when reassembling..?? Seen that a hundred times.. They offer undersize crank seals so you can have that end turned down if you do fuck it up... Most important thing when you start em up for the first time is to check that oil tank and make sure its returning.. Cant stress that enough... Also, sometimes you wont get oil to the top end without taking it out for a ride and get it thru some gears... We used to run clear hose to the rocker feed on the first start up.. Then make sure it is getting up to the rockers...True, but how many engines are actually built right? I'm sure you've had your fair share on repairing other peoples F/ups. Just recently we recieved a Trumpy for a few repairs and modifications. The customer asked us to fit an oil gauge and we did. On start up, there was zero oil pressure. Checked the gauge, worked fine. Pulled off the timing cover and the oil seal was ragged out. The engine was rebuilt using lots of new parts, including timing gears, oil pump etc. Very clean job. But it looked like someone had used their palm to drive the timing cover on and the seal must have caught the crank.
Lucky the bike wasn't ridden much since the rebuild. We caught it just in time. This is why we like to use oil gauges.
If there was no clutch hub washer, there would be nothing holding the clutch hub in?? Do you know who rebuilt it? Did you mention it to him?? Thats not really anything that can be an honest mistake.. Thats just wrong..I bought my motor as rebuilt but when ripping the primary apart to fit a belt drive, I noticed no clutch nut washer and the rotor nut lock washer was beat to shit. There was the odd rounded off nut or ratty fastener, as well as a bent stator stud. When rebuilding you'd think putting in the appropriate washers and some new fasteners where required would be common practice but I guess not.
