So back to assembling news. Been a long troubleshooting week actually
Engine was set and started. Sound was deafening without silencer flute hihihi. It was very special feeling when the yezdi heart started beating. Three cheers to Ashan that within the third pumping itself the engine got to work.
Now comes the hard part
After initial testing – decided to test on Gear shifting. 4th gear slipping is solved but that shifting moved to the second gear slipping. So the matter was not related to gear wheel and its sealing. Its something else.
I started prodding my head but ashan was cool head. He said “tomo he will take to Engg workshop to test over there”
Next Day – Spend full day wondering what was the issue and in evening went to workshop - Bingo – Issue was with Gear selector plate – That’s why slipping happened.
Now searching for part started – Called Thrissur shop. He said same is available for 450 bucks. There is around 2 hours ride from my place to Thrissur. I decide then I ll try my luck in local shops first once more before going to Thrissur.
Looks like lucky stars where flying all around my head got one from nearby shop. Though it’s not OE it looked good enough.
Ashan started setting the engine again. Same old tensed waiting. Engine started without any problem , pulled gear lever upwards to gear 1 . raised accel no prob then moved downwards to second third and fourth hurray no slipping this time. There is a little bit a hardness I shifting gear but ashan said it ll be ok after some run .
Meanwhile painting work is almost complete, so yezdi started shaping up to its previous glory. Around 85% is complete now. Electrical work is pending. I ll upload the pics once rolled out
