Odyssey FL350R / Re: Hole in Bottom Case
« on: October 07, 2020, 05:39:47 AM »
I have not looked in a while, but there were quite a few spare bottom ends out there. When Honda did a recall and replaced many engines, the ones pulled out will pop up every once in a while. Looks like there are multiple sets of cases on eBay right now.

You have to get it apart first. The hole is because something did not fit between crank and case. It may not be the only damage. There may be cracks all the way around. Your crank needs to be rebuild, even if it looks good. The bearings would all have been damaged. That is the exit side of the spinning crank. So whatever it was, had to travel from the front to get there. If you have damage to both sides, I would look at picking up a used bottom end.

Derek now has 25 sets of fenders at his shop in California. He has one set of brackets and another 10 will be on the way to him tomorrow. 661-747-5796

Derek Tissenger might be a good contact for non-internet people with Odysseys in California. 661-747-5796

You could pull the drain plug and drain out the fuel through maybe a coffee filter, then put back in. It might save you a couple filters.

It is a lot harder to pull over than a lawn mower or power washer.

You can try checking spark with a plug in the head and another in the boot. If the spark is weaker than when there is no plug in the head, then your starter is going bad. You can search for posts about the oil level in the counter balancer. It should be at the low mark on the dip stick. If it was ever over filled, the extra oil is now in your starter.

Are you using the electric start or the pull start? If using the electric, try with the pull starter. If checking spark with electric start, do not remove plug, use another spark plug to check.

The missing fixture has been made. All fenders and brackets are now in stock.

I did not have a mold made for tubs. I would be willing to make them if there was a pre-buy. It would go something like this, there would be a list of people who express interest, no money paid. When the list is long enough, everyone would pay. Once payments received, it would be likely about 3 months for the mold to get made, prototype verified then a production run. They would likely run $800 with center console. The design I did would allow the center console to work with a factory tub, but the new tubs would not work with the factory console. I can't make the locking tabs. This pre-buy setup is how the original water cooled head sale worked 20 years ago that ultimately launched Aftershock Motorsports.

I designed the new fender bracket die in CAD and half has been machined. The other half should be done soon. Another production run of fenders are currently being run and will be sent to Derek Tissenger in California. Fenders can be purchased from him or Aftershock, but Aftershock no longer accepts credit cards via phone. They can also be ordered from Derek and drop shipped from Michigan if closer and the shipping will be cheaper.

We have all the fenders, but missing one bracket for the rear fenders. The fixture to make that bracket needs to be made again as it was lost.

Sorry, missed that there was a reply. I use the Mikuni clone pumps. If you call Ruby at Aftershock, I think she has one on hand. Aftershock is looking to shut down retail sales, but there is still some inventory left.

Also note that if your compression is lower than about 125, the pump won't work. That much of a drop in compression means the rings are leaking. That reduces the pulse to the pump.

The spinning clutch is what is causing it to grind. Once the belt breaks in, it may not be as bad. It does not really happen on a machine with an aftermarket clutch and higher engagement RPM. It is fairly normal otherwise.

If the line to the crank case from the pump is leaking, or the crank seals have dried out and are leaking, no pulse will be provided to the pump to operate it. It would be good to check for those air leaks on a machine that has sat.
