Going to be a SRV440
« on: November 09, 2020, 09:44:06 am »
My best friends son Johan got his  SS440 1981 many years ago, and it has been (ab)used a lot.  Most of it aint on photo, but some moments are captured  ;D






The hood has been open more than closed, always repairing something  :o   





And many odd repairs it has been, both on the outside and the inside of the sled.  ::)



But the motorn has ALWAYS worked  :)



So when we got a SRV very cheap, we decided that we would build a SRV440.



It's a 1982 SRV:n with a 1981 cut up hood. Sled has a bad seat, worse skid and broken track and everything is dirty as hell.



The reason that the hood is cut open, is because the previous owner had mounted a Enticer 340 motor. But now it's gonna be a SS440-engine instead  8)

    Started to get the ET-engine out.



    Found a odd thing... the motor mounting plate was not bolted in the front  ???



    Motor out!



    Sad to see that the previous owner has made it easy for him self, cutting out the side wall on the PTO-side  ::)

    Stripping









    Going to be another track and skid on the sled. And when the drive shaft is out I'm gonna mount new bearings.











    Skis in good shape, but the skins are not  :D But the plan is to get modern plastic skis.



    Wheels mounted to make it easy to wove the chassi around....



    Cleaning





    New side wall welded and the mounts for the ET-motor is grinded away.

    Now the SS has to donate some parts to the project  :D

    First the engine





    Skid and track





    The Polaris skid has worked very well on the SS, so the plan was to use it on the SRV too



    But it needs welding, and we have no good welder for aluminum around here...





    So we decided to use a Phazer skid instead. Bought new shocks and the skid is ready for mounting.

    Wow that thing has taken some serious hits...i have seen guys rivet or bolt plates around their damaged holes on the rails for repairs before...i guess i never asked them if it worked or not as their project was in the summer...just a thought if you wanted to repair your other skid

    Now with the PZ-skid, it's no hurry to repair the Poo-skid. So I will look around if I can find someone who welds.

    With the motor on the bench, I took it apart and put new oil seals on the crankshaft and new piston wrist pin bearings.



    A little oily behind the stator plate



    Bottom is off



    The oil pump gearing taken off. It won't be mounted again...
    Could not guess that the pump and gear could weigh almost 1,9 lbs.



    New oil seals



    and new needle bearings



    With the motor back together, I started to make a new left front motor mount



    I think it will work...

    So you are going to use an electric tach?

    No, it won't be any tach. Not at this point anyway, maybe if Johan feels that the sled won't rev as it should I will mount a electric tach.

    Took the TSS apart to check the condition on shocks and springs. Everything was in good shape.









    Then I mounted grease fittings on the TSS-arms
