New member - need some help
« on: August 23, 2014, 12:02:39 PM »
A friend gave me a '67 175 Hurricane.  Very low miles, but had been outside and the motor is locked up. The rubber parts are missing or rotted, but most all of the bike is there. I found the frame tag and headstock number but am unable to locate the motor number. I removed the air clear and exhaust pipes to get a good look at the top of the motor, but still no joy. Any suggestions? Thanks

the engine number is on the bike just to the right of the kick start lever. it should be a long smooth area with the numbers punched into it. Richard has the rubber parts an if your lucky an can get the pistons free without damaging the jugs you could be sitting real good at the start of a restoration. Throw up some pictures of it when  you have a chance. we always like seeing the finds that people pick up.

Thanks - I'll give it another look tomorrow morning.  And I'll try to get some photos in a few days. I took the heads off and the left cyl is toast. The right one looks good but the piston is still stuck after a couple of days of solvent soak. Patience is needed.

Found the motor number - thanks! I would never have thought to look there as that's the side cover, not the crankcase as it normally would be.  It's not just an academic issue as I need to have the motor number for reg and title in California. Don't know what they're going to do about a frame number and a vin tag. That will be their problem. Hope to have photos by the week end.
