Fix “Mixer”

Postby STRETCH » Fri Jun 14, 2019 9:24 pm

Nothing like some last minute repairs ....

My wife and I went for our first ice cream run a week ago to get the dust off Stick Mixer and noted a few, bothersome issues.

1) the alt belt has always loosened up due to a bent pulley behind the vibration dampener.
Cause: rust corrosion between the pulley and mount hub. ( replaced, done!)

2) oil running down out of exhaust port... or so I thought.
Thinking big problem... we’ll turns out one of the Jake brake terminal pass throughs was loose and running down the back side then down on the exhaust manifold. Replaced it, silicone it a little to seal threads , installed new valve cover gaskets.

3) changing all fluids even though I only have put less than 1000 miles on over the last two years.
4) i did a couple weeks back, changed a pesky rear wheel seal, that had made a mess of my left rear brakes, so I did both and installed new shoes hardware and rebushed the s cam shafts.
5) next is to tackle the some of the small tranny drips... at least it won’t rust underneath :lol:

Hope everyone else is thinking “show season” ...

Good job. There's usually no shortage of leaks on these things.

Yeah... there is always something to tinker with.
Saving the big job for this fall ... I have a fair amount of blow by coming out crankcase breather.
So I’m gonna bite the bullet and do a inframe.
I’m thinking this high crankcase pressure is also contributing to the leaks.

But that is a after show season project.

Nice work Stretch! Looks like you're making good use of the new shop. If you're interested in farming out the overhaul work, let me know.

Tom... I’m trying to work smarter not harder these days. I use to muscle them off by hand, but my back can’t take it anymore. :wink:

Stan , I tried calling VD&G today ... they must have been on coffee break or something. The receptionist wasn’t in either :lol: I’ll let you know or talk to you at the show about it.

Will post more photos tonite.... I hope.

Borrowing from the oldpwr playbook

Sprucing up some odds and ends.

I need a total repaint as well... but this will do for now.

Wish I could find a clean chrome luberfiner... but they are hard to come by.

I hope to post complete job photos tomorrow .

This is my somewhat finished product...
Not perfect.... but looks 98% better than before.

Replaced the rubber oil lines with aluminum braided Teflon hoses.

While I was doing that I noticed the power steering pump suction lines were dripping so now that’s the next
oil leak to tackle. I removed the 1 1/2 in pipe elbow that was a little loose , but can’t get it tight enough and indexed so I can get the hose back on. :evil:
Getting a special 24 to 20 jic fitting tomorrow ... hope that works..
