Well had to pull the cover. I did exactly what you said, but the damn thing was so sealed in there that I could not pry it out. Even with the cover off I had a hell of a job. Of course they sent me the wrong gasket and ended up making a gasket ( thank you Fel- Pro), half the parts I order end up being wrong, because of the 1984 being so different and I make sure to specify it's a 1984. Anyway job is done and I appreciate the help.

figures. no matter what.... things seem to take 4x longer than planned (being optimistic) and cost 4x as much as planned as always run into problems and other things that need to be done while there. just the way it goes, PLAN AHEAD.


the 84 also has the ignition picks up's on the back of motor, got to take swingarm off to get to them? and.... they don't make ignition pick ups for it anymore/discontinued. the 85 and newer models they put the pick ups on the front of the motor, a little easier to get to , but still unavailable? they go bad... that (to me) is BAD.


intermittent motor /ignition stoppage when hair wires get hot in the ign pick ups and separate... let it cool, the wires come back together, motor runs... til motor gets hot again and wires pull apart in the Ign pick ups and no signal to the ign coils so no ignition.


mine did that once after I pressure washed it. just died, no spark. towed it back to place.... let it sit for a week/dried out... started right up?? don't trust it now out of tow range. water on the ...knee???

That could probably be repaired by someone good with small electrical skills. Any way the one I have been working on was my late dad's and I have been fixing it up to sell for my mom. The oil leak developed after someone decided to buy it. i would start it every so often to keep it lubed and running . And one morning there was a huge puddle of oil under it. I don't have the hart to do that to someone so I felt obligated to fix it.
