    Anyone have a digital parts manual for the subject motor?

    Got it 2021 at Tomahawk, and had my son help me get
    it into the workshop today for this winter’s project.
    Looks like 120 pounds of fun…… or boat anchor!

    I can copy and mail you a parts manual. I could also scan and e-mail one.

    Nice motor and when they are right, they are sweet running. Issues were the cranks, primarily due to undersized rollers. I’d suggest rebuilding the rotary valve and replacing the bearings with sealed bearings. As the bearings wear, the rotor wobbles and rubs the housing thus causing the tolerances to open.

    Hopefully, (and the several I’ve seen have them), you have the 1/2″ long rollers and steel cages. Some had 3/8ths rollers and bronze cages.

    That sure looks like a great winter project – hope you got some heat installed in the motor shop!   Keep us posted on progress.

    Bob, The garage is warming up as I speak, but I need to wind up the 14 hp Fastwin before
    starting on another motor, now that I have the paint for the rewind housing and cowls.
    Frost on the pumpkin this morning, and I put away my boat yesterday.
    I’m holding off on draining the test barrel for a while yet.

    Don’t let Randy know you have that rotary valve motor!

    I won’t tell if you don’t, but if I get stuck Mumbles,
    I’ll have to ask you for advice then!

    As with all your other detailed, motor resurrections
    this one should be just as interesting as well as
    educational for me. Those are way too heavy so its
    not likely I’ll ever have one.

    Tubs, the 120 pound motor didn’t feel that heavy when we put it
    on the stand, but I was only lifting half of it!

    I think it’s more like 145 lbs. but what’s another 25 lbs.
