20 August 1970
Now that the engine is apart, I found that the timing chain has worn through the cylinder wall, causing the leak that initiated this whole project in the first place. I'm debating repair methods. I might get a whole lower engine off of ebay or just the cylinder walls if I can find them. Or I'll try to repair the existing cylinder wall somehow.
The end of this week is supposed to be cold. This means the end of my motorcycle commuting. Or at least the most part of it. Time to start carpooling with Julene and/or taking transit. That will be first.
