I am thinking about possibly restoring it, i got most of the mechanical problems sorted out. I got the fornt cowl and got all lights hooked up. The color the guy painted the white parts is almost pink... :mad2: the yellow is a little off but not bad. Still, it was a HORRIBLE paint job. He only painted otside of frame and there is a lot of overspray on engine. Im not gonna rebuild engine or repaint it but i am thinking about doing all the body work with all new paint. Hydro still needs to be ajusted and the fluid changed but thats no big deal. It needs new key switch and the starter rebuilt but again, no big deal. Im gonna get new engine mounts, decals, choke cable, and muffler box... The thing is i dont have good air compressor or painting skills so i am gonna try and rattle can it. I also dont know how to do that very well. I need tips on repainting and body work, and also the best way on how to dissasemble and reassemble. Thoghts? suggestions? Ideas? Any idea of price of paint and decals? PLEASE HELP! Ill get pics up in minute...

 

CANT WAIT TO GET STARTED! :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

Here is a good place to get decals. http://maplehunterde...bcadet1450.aspx

Buying paint by the spraycan is probably goingto get pretty expensive. This was the cheapest I could find.   http://axialflowcomb....asp?pn=991098N

Rattle can painting isn't all that hard,just takes a little practice.

I would say the trunion needs to be rebuilt. The hour meter picture is a little foggy. Can't quite make it out.

Here are some instructions on how to read it though.

I would think it had 640 hrs on it, but I could be wrong.

 

And by looking at yours, I would say it reads 635hrs. on the engine if the hour meter is still working.
