Time to replace...

Well it is a bummer, but like Dave said, I caught it in time.

I got the bike for a good price and 99% knew this was a place that I would have to sink some coin. Luckily I knew enough not to ride it until I had the time to do the inspection

What you cant see as I could not get a pic with the mirror, is the rear shoe is cracked and ready to fail!

When in doubt check, you will save some coin in the long run...






Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Looks very clean, what are the little spirals?
That camera takes good close ups- what kind of camera?

Pan, I am not sure what the spirals are from. That is a AAA battery for reference. I am guessing maybe some thread cuttings from the cam plate? They were in the base of the chest when I pulled the cover.

When I get all the parts together for replacement, I will pull the Cam Plate and that may show more or not!


The camera is my little Nikon CP500
Nikon COOLPIX P500 Camera

Time to drop the oil pan to clean out all those little orange bits and pieces too ! If not they can work their way back into your new oil pump and cause damage.
Those spiral shavings bother me. Are they aluminum or magnetic material, if stainless they could be from bearings.

The rear shoe looks intact, but cracked along the back collar.(if that make sense) I will know better once the plate is pulled off. So I'm not totally sure any is missing.
The shavings are not magnetic, and feel to hard for aluminum. I'm thinking stainless.

I have another bike to ride, so I can do this repair right.(hopefully)

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Maybe we can chat tonight, and get a list together, G. I'll start packing parts to send south, or at least start getting them together.

Cam support plate oil control kit that seals the oil port.

10-4 Dave. As always you're there to help a brother out!

BTW... I informed the Finance Minister that I was gonna put a dent in the "Disney" fund to buy some parts! No need to say it, but that went over like a turd in a punch bowl!

In the bottom right pic I noticed the orange chip up by the top right screw hole at about 7 o'clock. Where there's one there's probably more.

Wow... good eyes. I have to go back and look at that. I don't doubt photo evidence, at least when I know who took the photo.

But, I totally did not see that

Sounds like oil pan gasket just made the list!
