Turning Wrenches / Re: F-6 fuel petcock repair/rebuild
« Last post by pushin9s on Today at 05:34:33 PM »
Thanks to all for the replies. The petcock had a small screw in the side and when removed allowed me to pull it apart. There is a small black rubber cylinder that goes over the petcock valve tube that prevents it from leaking. The rubber has hardened and shrunk significantly over the years and was unserviceable. As it turns out, the local Harley shop had a petcock for a Sportster that is a near exact replacement. It is just missing the sediment bowl. For $20 I replaced it and put an inline filter on it while replacing the fuel line. Little bike runs like a champ!!

"Bike of the month material, most excellent!"
I'd love to see that bike on the 2SW masthead for a month! My first "big bike" decision fell between a Metralla and a Ducati Diana. I ended up with the Ducati, but have carried a torch for the Metralla ever since.

If you grab a 3/8 ratchet close to the head, most guys can get a plug tight.

Iam currently Working on removing the bushings from the rear wheel, When done without completely destroying the rim, it Will be sent to powder coat.

Also, i have gotten in contact With a cool dude With acces to State of the art milling/CNC machines, hopefully we Will ventilate the original discs, and make a bras cover/replace With a bras cover( the smal circular cover on the engine).

Tires. - Iam thinking dunlop tires ( They still need tubes??)
So Iam trying to focus on finishing the wheels With disc brakes, ready to go.

Next step Will be front end!

Stay tuned people :patriot:
Turning Wrenches / RD400 Engine cover bolt sizes
« Last post by barber1303 on Today at 03:44:40 PM »
Anyone have a handy list of the RD400 engine cover bolt lengths?  I'll measure them if I have to, but thought I'd leverage the team "database" if someone's already done this.

Right, backwards. I do believe mine was in backwards, not upside down, sorry haha.

I had taken the slide in and out of the carb multiple times and it seemed like it was correct (cutouts and all), but it just was not, took another set of eyes to catch it.

NO, what he means is backwards. the cutout (arced part) needs to face the air cleaner side, not the motor. im sure thats not the case but its worth looking at.
