Aircooled RD Tech Help 250cc and Above / Re: Crank seal leak test
« Last post by iranana on Today at 09:53:43 PM »
To begin with, you don't really have to remove anything - if you can hold ~6 PSI for ~6 minutes I wouldn't worry too much about checking the crank or ignition seals on their own. If you still have leaks after sealing the intake/exhaust, then dig in it. You will need to remove the clutch and primary gear to get good visibility of the seal. Or maybe it's possible to remove the primary on its own but I've not tried. No left hand threads to my knowledge.

Never had an issue with oil or fuel. Guess the high heat lacquer is pretty resilient.

Finished the other one today...





I do need new metal Yamaha decals for the casings but they can wait...they cost money lol. Wheels are off being shot blasted and powder coated. I didn't like the gold they had so opted for something else...and I am waiting for some gaskets so next step is the seat and tank. Both big jobs so they might take a while...

Phil Featherstone has 2 of these copy carbs on his 200 and says they are fine, I think like all the China cheap stuff, if you fettle a little they will be fine, you know cleaning up burrs smoothing where necessary, that type of thing, I have been thinking about buying some just to see if they take some known make parts.

I have bought lots of China bits and bobs, mostly its poor quality finish, thrown together with no quality control, but with some work doing the quality control myself, I find the stuff can be made to do the job intended very well.

There is just no quality control and so its pot luck, but if you can and will do your own quality control you can get a real bargain, just my Tony tuppence worth.
Totally agree with the China thing. It was a while back and newer ones are probably better. Getting jets small enough was an issue as we used it on a four stroke. I have a tig welder and valve tube pre amp from China and both are exceptional for the money :)
