They never understand. I never complain about how much time my wife spends in the kitchen. Just not fair is it.I could be! if I spend much more time in the shed my Wife will land me in Critical Care!
Cheers Mate, hope it goes well for you.She Lives. On the bench anyway! The rod is at least moving and in the right direction!
Not sure if I can post a video on here but I'll try??
The whole thing took a lot of putting back together, mostly because I'm a dick and it's more trial and error than carefully planned. I think I had the seals the wrong way round ie swapped from the top block to the bottom block. but every time I snugged up the nuts on the back of the pump it locked up the drive wheel. still not really sure why but I have removed quite a lot of metal trying to flat the faces. Anyway it's not leaking and its working on the bench, and that's enough for today, its freezing out there. Trial on the bike tomorrow. that's when every seal on the unit will blow out!
Wish me luck and many thanks for all the advice and general friendliness.
Specifically John Zeiler and Wazza. Cheers
Hi Guys n Gals,
Looking for technical docs or photos /video showing a EHCS rebuild. Been wrestling with the Hydraulics all day.
Rod is not moving at all, even with assistance it doesn't take over and drive the piston at all.
Basically motor is running, gear wheel is OK, new shaft and seals on cylinder, filled and bled the unit a few times today. I started out using fork oil, changed to transmission fluid later in the day as it was heavier.
I haven't broken open the pump yet as I wanted to know what I was letting myself in for.
Ive searched the technical docs and found John Zeiler's seals list, very useful
and I've also found many people thanking Ari for his rebuild pics but the link doesn't work.
Any one point me in the right direction, and or any ideas regards the total lack of movement?
Thanks in advance!
I think we can get them here for about £30, it's a widely used Scooter starter. The one on my K now is an eBay jobbie!The starter motor is still widely available in the after market world anywhere from $20 up to $45. Usually it is corrosion on the grounding brush screw that kills the electric motor.
Congratulations Stu. Glad you worked it out. You say it's sluggish but in my experience it is never fast anyway.Yeah! After many hours of screwing with the hydraulics it works!!!
After the success of the bench test I installed in the bike and, although it's a bit sluggish, it competently drags the stand into the upright position, no oil leaks, all good. I won't be taking one of those apart ever again!
Good looking unit Stu, it looks like new and I like the color.First time In ten years it's been in one piece! View attachment 181867
You mean you can take it out for a ride now? That should be fun.First time In ten years it's been in one piece!
Looking forward to it after the mot, tax and insurance.You mean you can take it out for a ride now? That should be fun.
