Launch of the Apollo

On the chopping block this week is A's Yamaha XS650 engine. Big plans on this one:

-Cam and crank will be shipped to Hugh's for a rephase to 277
-Pamco ignition
-700cc overbore
-Resurfaced head and valve job
-Aftermarket oil filter
-Permanent magnetic alternator
-Swapping out transmission with a later model including 5th gear overdrive
-Hydraulic clutch
-2" sump extension
-New gaskets and oil seals

Once the engine is entirely apart, I'll be able to inspect the bearings, valve guides and any other bits that made need replacing.

Stay tuned.
