I'm doing a complete rebuild of my Quad's motor. replacing all bolts with SS Allen bolts, everything is looking good. Awesome seal on the two case halves, and loctite on all screws. Getting ready to close up the side case and I find on the bench a thrust washer for the transmission.. So its all back apart again to find out where it goes...

Man I hate that...

Hell, you're way ahead of me.

I don't even know what a thrust washer looks like.

Isn't that like a douche or something?

Last time (and first time) I took an engine apart, I left rags in the cylinder ports


I feel your pain.

Yep, you would put it together 100 times correctly.

But the final time, when you use a bunch of locktite, you will forget something.

What's the old saying? 'There's never enough time to do things right but there's always time to do them over.'

Could be much worse though. You might have found that thrust washer on your table when you were tearing down your newly fragged engine.

Yep,and what really sucks is it will probably leak oil and the bolts will loosen up after you get er done.


I've done the same thing flaring lines-make your best flare ever........but didn't put the fitting on first.


Wal Mart greeter seems so much easier........................

You do need no thrust washer...just put a little extra saw dust in the case. It'll smooth right out.

LOL ya 4th gear would lock up the whole transmission.. I guess .070 makes a difference..

Well I did get a great seal on it again and re-coated all screws. Just waiting on the radiator to show up!

Its a 86 LT250R Bumped up to 260..
