Thread: 76 XLCH issues

    Default 76 XLCH issues

    Just bought this motor yesterday. Started pulling it apart to see how it looked and I started seeing metal shavings everywhere. Pulled the cam cover and I see a ton of metal. Any suggestions? Canít find anything that looks totally screwed yet.

    For one thing, that pinion bushing should be a press fit in the cover, not stuck on the end of the pinion shaft. In any event, you have a seriously blown up motor there, so just tear it down to the crankpin and start rebuilding.
