Engine Work

Awhile back I got a deal on a second ex650 engine.  I plan to balance and blueprint it, as well as do some other mods to increase power.
A couple of hours on Saturday and Sunday had it to this stage.  Just waiting to borrow (hopefully) an alternator puller prior to splitting the cases.

The pistons were pretty loaded with carbon -- I've already begun to clean them at this stage.

Apparently soaking them in simple green works wonders.  The piston skirts are in very good shape, so I will definitely be reusing these.
