Rebuilding BMW air head help
« on: August 31, 2010, 02:07:00 pm »
My son is rebuilding an older air head to put into a Dneper.  All is good except a special tool is needed to install the main rear seal on the engine.    Just wanted to know if anyone in the Seattle area would have one I could borrow?    --chris  - on the trailing edge of technology

Chris,    If he hasn't done so he might check with the Airheads forums. I used to hang around there and they were pretty active and helpful.    http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=13    There are two or three forums for the airhead bikes nowadays.    Good luck!

Thanks for the info.  He is checking other places, I just thought I woud see about here.  The tool is only $35 or so.  If he doesn't find someone right away he will buy one.  He is frugal enough for a connie so he doesn't want to buy a one time tool.  :)    --chris    - on the trailing edge of technology
