I imagine they would condemn the house I grew up in. Built in the mid 50s and the attic was insulated with vermiculite. Plenty of fine dust floating around every time we went there for storage, running additional wiring, etc....

Welcome (back) to the disorder!
The real problem comes when the garage space runs out.

FWIW some info I gathered - 
Oil line can be fuel line from a motorcycle or lawn mower shop. 3/16" or 5mm non-reinforced. Anything that's intended for fuel will last a long time with oil.

I would be interested in buying an oil tank if anyone has a cracked one they'd like to sell.  I have a neighbor with a plastic welder and may be able to get it to hold oil.  My GTO didn't come with a tank.  Thanks in advance.

I haven't tried this, but maybe heating the area to 500-600 degrees with a small torch would loosen the pin enough to pull out with a strong magnet.  I've found an infrared thermometer to be helpful checking to see how hot something is when heating it for reasons like this.  Otherwise, it's hard to tell the difference between 200 and 500 degrees.

Arc welding a welding rod (or any piece of round steel) to the pin and pulling with that also sounds like a good idea to me. You'd just need to be careful to get it centered.
General Discussion / Locating pins
« Last post by coxy on December 13, 2017, 02:40:56 PM »
Gday all
I have a couple of cases where the locating pins or lugs for the output shaft have been pushed into the cases from someone not lining them up
Has anyone had this problem and been able to get the pins out with out damage to the casings
I think the pins are hardened so drilling would be difficult
Arching out a welding rod maybe to get some leverage?
Or the worst case senario to drill a hole under the pins and tap them back up and then fill the holes
Has anyone had success with this

I wanted a motorcycle as long as I can remember. I saved my nickels and dimes. In Feb. 1971 I purchased a used Bridgestone 90 Sport, my first motorcycle. I think I paid $115 for a nice used one. I was 15 1/2 and in love.
I found out later it had been seized. The replacement cylinder was cast iron. My dad  showed me how to service the top end. Shortly after the crank let go. Dad showed me how to split the cases. The second time the crank let go, dad told me I knew what to do, so I did.
I ran the wheels off that little bike, read abused the poor little thing. It spent plenty of time as a dirt bike, and a road burner. After getting my license I would run around with the neighbor kid on his Honda CT90. There was no question the Bridgestone had the motor.
A titled running example showed up locally. The pricing seems reasonable. It would need some love to bring it back to glory. It would not be a show piece, but a reminder of my roots. I don't really have a use for it other than to look at it and feel good. I hate to give up the garage space, but it's so damn cool.
I've kept a bike or bikes ever since the first Bridgestone. I currently have a Honda 50 Z50A, never ride it. Norton 850 project, Harley XR1200, BMW RT, KTM 350 EXC, Suzuki DRZ, Honda CRF150. I guess I have the multiple bike disorder. What a curse!
