Look at the pic with the 2 early clock sets for what they should be like

Certainly the early ones, after that is anyone's guess.

While wazzocking about (see, it can mean owt!) yesterday and looking for a set of engine/frame bolts to fit to the Yeti, I came across an old clutch case that was in a box of parts from that very purchase.
Now when I bought the (then unnamed) Yeti, the PO had said that he had the original crankcases 'somewhere' had stripped the engine completely and they were 'somewhere safe' but couldn't remember where or why he'd stripped it. My later opinion was and still is, that he'd had a serious 'off' and damaged lots of the bike, started to sort it and then bought the Earwig which I also bought at the same time. Anyway, I have boxes with barrels, pistons (the originals went into the Green Meanie which was very rattly when first run) electrics, gearbox bits and covers etc. plus the case in the following pics. Well, I stripped anything useful (bearings, seals, tacho drive, 'C' clip from that and another in a similar state and they both now live at the scrappy!
Fortunately, I have 'a few' others, so plenty of stuff to go at yet.

Wonder what happened to the points plate and cam and the outer embossed points cover? :roll:
Now where are those bl00dy engine bolts?

Next stage - get the 'new' engine out of the spare bike........

The donor.

Ready for the first part of the transplant.

I'm sure that bolt shouldn't be like that!

Not all standard in here when the covers come off!

It's out!

The heart is out - ready to start the refurby bit.
Engine4.jpg
Ready for transport!

Ready for a ride to the garage, and sat on the engine stand.

In the garage and it's little triple wheeled (what else!) trolley.

Now in the garage - that was the easy bit on the newly built 3 legged trolley.

Alley OOOP! On the bench ready for knackling.

Had to get a neighbour to help with the lift. Good job it wasn't a chuffin' Hippo engine. :roll:
I lifted the last 2 engines down easily - less barrels, head and clutch, plus several cases.
Not light motors these triples when they have iron bores......
Now the engine strip and rebuild can commence - should be running..........soon. :roll:
