Bought a gearset and seals too, so transaxle is next in line. Once the motor is done that’s next in line.

I got some more parts in today. Unfortunately, the throttle seal I ordered came completely destroyed. It’s a little spongy ring. [22 BO] Rustbucket Garage’s - 1997 White 2055 “White Lightning”  - Page 2 S-l640
(What it should look like)
What I got was a fine black powder in a sealed bag. Grumble grumble grumble. I’m going to call the seller on monday and ask if I can get a refund. Sucks but that’s life I guess. Still waiting on rings and the axle seals.

Ugh! That sux.  Hope he works with you.  That's kind of unacceptable to sell something that is basically destroyed or rotted.

Could you not use a lubricated oring?

Well I spent 8 bucks on a new seal so I’m really gonna try and get my moneys worth here. If it doesn’t work out I cut a seal out of a foam air filter and it’s working, but again I want to really try and get OEM for the money I spent.

Rings are here now. Just gotta hone and build er up now, and we’re on to the axles next.

Hey that looks like a motor. Unfortunately I forgot to mark the valves when I lapped them so now they hiss when I turn the motor over by hand. Aaarrrggghhhhh!!! Not sure what to do. Don’t really want to pull both heads again and lap the valves.

Edit: I’m an idiot. This is normal. Still should have labeled everything though lmao
