new year = new challenge: a motor build!

With the new year I want to start building my own motor, first step is to tear the donor apart, a REALLY dirty one...:

 old oil everywhere! The consistency is more like honey - but taste and odor are far from that!

the mustache bar was already loose - I don't need that anyway

 oil + dust = yummy!

oil carbon under the breather housing...

According to the serial number it should be an early 1971 crankcase with the preferable "dual relief" oil galleries though...

the only plus with this piece of crap: all nuts and bolts are easy to loosen - soaked in oil for years!

After the complete tear down I will thoroughly clean it and check for cracks...
