The tool would be for when it's put back together,from the pics it looks like the home made socket tool has done a lot of damage to the nut which I've seen a lot of when farmers used to do their own repairs to there bikes and use lots of silicon on the home made cornflake box clutch cover gasket resulting in blocked oil gallery ‚ seized cam and stuffed head

U can buy a double ended chinca copy of the Honda special tool for 12 or 13 bucks on delay posted to your door

Bit late now Matt,,, but good tip for punters planning a job soon to come  :D

That thing you are calling a "oil pick up thingy"  ;D ;D ;D ,,, sorry can't help it Alex  ;D  , it is a
"centrifuge"  and all that grey paste is the worn alloy,,, like most likely your head camshaft journals
that are non-ferrous and won't collect on a magnetic drain plug.

Seriously great innovation to collect "heavier" (waste) from the about to be recycled "lighter" SG 8.5 to 9.5 lube blood.

Had a bit of time this arvo, so i hooked into removing the gear shaft. The gear shift had been welded on and the splines were knackered, as well as the oil seal blown.
First off was to remove the oil pickup filter thingy. You need Honda special tool #somethingorrather.. but to get around it, i just ground 4 notches in an old socket.  I also needed Honda special tool #costsalotamoney.  This is a an 2c piece that i jammed inbetween the gears to stop the rotation of the engine.  Its copper, so doesnt damage anything (except the 2c piece).
This all worked a treat and off came the oil thingy, the clutch, a few other doohickies and then the gear shaft just pulls straight up and out.

Thats as far as i got, as i am using some of my special ally welding wire to fix a broken footpeg mount using a propane torch.
We will see how this all works out when i try and fix it tomorrow morning with a hangover...

Pic below showing numerous Honda special tools and techniques....

Got all my parts together and they have gone to the powder coaters together with my YZ125G frame.  All to be done with a zinc prime and gloss black powdercoat. (pic below is various G and XR components)



Working on the engine this afternoon.  Have to make a special tool to get the oil pump/cleaner thingy off, so i can get the clutch off...

Have all the parts now to rebuild the wheels, so hope to get them together over the weekend...

Cheers,

Thanks guys, love doing the rebuilds, but they can be a nightmare sometimes when you run into problems.
Took all the parts up to Southside Powder Coaters in WA this morning.  They are going to do the G frame, XR75 frame, handlebars, spring, 2 sets pegs, airbox, brake arms and various other parts shown in the pic below. Thats blast, zinc prime, and gloss black final coat.. $300.  Thought that was a bargain.. pick up next Tuesday, so pics then..

Cheers,
