A future of one EX
One of the last, if not the last EX500 engines made. By some strange sequence of events I stumbled upon this, and was not going to let it get away. Bought it last year, 9 years after the last production.
Engine serial number EX500AE350444
Not that it would make any difference whether this is the last engine, or the 10th to the last engine. But if anyone knows of a way I can determine what the last serial number would be, I would love that information. :grin:
Got it hoisted out of the crate.
Running some rods through the motor mounts, figuring how to mount it on a display stand.
My stand ends up looking like this.
The following are snake cam pics
The piston tops, snaking down the spark plug holes.
Tried to get a shot of the valves from the combustion chamber, but my little mirror needed to get the proper angle wouldn't fit in the spark plug hole.
Snaking through the exhaust ports shows the exhaust valves.
Snaking through the intake ports shows the intake valves.
The clutch snaking in the oil filler cap.
The timing chain, snaking down the goody box.
Taking the valve cover off shows all the red markings made during the manufacturing. I'm not really sure what the reason for them are, but I can still see remnants of them on my installed engine.
I have also put the display on wheels, so I can easily move it from one display area to another. :grin:
