My TE410 clevis came off all by itself miles out in the bush. Destroyed a shock by the time I got it back to civilization.

Got the bump stop ordered up, and a couple weeks off work while the little fella is on school holidays. Will crack into it all and see where I end up.

Left hand lower rad spigot has had contact with the pipe and is about 50% closed up. Any tips for opening it up without cracking it? I think this is an 09 feature where they ran larger rads which didn't fit well with the pipe.

Linkage appears to be well greased, but has a little play in it. Probably should replace them, but think I'll assemble with fresh grease and see how she runs before dropping more money into the finer details.

Heat spigot up & bend/elongate.

They always have a bit of slop in linkage but my money will be on top & bottom bearings/bush. Lower shock bearing is readily available from bearing mobs for $10-$15. Can get kit with bush for $40.

Top bearing is a spherical number. Mine are rooted but are 120 & 300+ hours old. Will get suspension guy to replace one day when I get them serviced!

Cheers mate! Figured that would be the way.. Things are cleaning up alright.

No idea how long she sat caked in mud, but its stained up the alloys a treat. Gotta be some magic chemical that takes the elbow grease out of it a bit!

Chemtech Blitz.

There's a big thread on here somewhere from a few years ago. Just be careful on the carby body

Been chippin away at the little lass.

Most of it is just cleaning away the baked on mud that has been there x amount of years.

Completely pulled down to the frame and washed. The coil has been bolted up to a make shift bracket, and attached to the frame with a couple hose clamps. Faaarks me how they had a solid earth happening. The tabs have broken off the existing mount, so I'll have to look and see about either welding the tabs back on, or more likely just the whole bracket they've fabbed up.

Frame is missing a few bits of paint, and a bit of surface rust in places, but no visible cracks or damage. 09 was known to be 'weak' and given that the head stays are missing and coil tabs are broken, I'm surprised she isn't compromised elsewhere.

I intend to finish cleaning up the swingarm and linkage with some fresh grease, get the suspension back in, and the wheels on. From there I'll drop the engine in and see if she will fire up. If I can't get her running I'll boycott the project, otherwise I'll continue with chains, sprockets, suspension fluids, and possibly a fresh coat of paint on the frame. She's quick and easy to pull down so I'd rather go through it twice than drop coins into a bottomless pit.

Everything is cleaning up nicely though, and progressing well. Might post some pics up tomorrow.

Good read, hope it fires and you can breath some life back into it. Sounds like a fun little project.

It's a husky 2t of course she'll fire up!

Part of me wants it not to run so I can buy it for spares. I know what ya paid for it too!
