Seized Engine

Post by Barlow »



I posted awhile back about the engine in my 75 Wing being seized.
Well with some info from the members here it is now turning over with the tranny in 5h gear and using the rear wheel but..............
With the tranny in neutral, when I try to turn the engine over with the kick start lever it won't budge.
Any idea why and how to fix that problem ?
The bike has been sitting for a long period of time and I'm thinking the clutch plates are stuck together.


Happy trails,
Barlow

I used to have a tractor that did the same thing. I would put it in first gear, tie the clutch pedal down, and rock it back and forth. Some times it would take a lot, but eventually it would break loose. Hope it works.
