Pressing on the new bearings and installing the crankshaft assembly into the case halves and adding some extra pre-lube.

in this picture of the cylinder the pencil is pointing to the pulse passage in the cylinder that operates the fuel pump in the carburetor. it is extremely important that this hole does not get blocked by the gasket or any gasket sealer because even a partially blocked hole will seriously affect the operation of the fuel pump. After pre-lubing the cylinder wall with two stroke oil I proceeded to install the cylinder on to the engine and torque all the nuts and bolts to spec.

Before installing the coil baseplate I had to add a piece of wire to the yellow lighting coil wire as it was very short and to add wire is easier to do prior to installing the baseplate on the engine. then I installed it and set the baseplate to my chisel marks.

Then I set the point gap and installed the timing gauge tool into the cylinder head and dialed it to zero which is TDC.

So then using my multimeter and rotating the crankshaft until the points just opened and comparing that to the dial indicator reading, it was right within the specs. So I proceeded to lock it in place.

I also wire brushed and polished the fly wheel cooling fan and gave the starter cup a fresh coat of black paint prior to installing and torqueing to spec.

These are pictures of the muffler before and after repairing the support bracket. Welding to the body of the muffler is like welding paper it is so thin! After repairing, I gave it a coat of high temp black paint (which will eventually burn off!). I also used the die grinder to clean up the weld on the inside so the exhaust has a nice smooth flow.

Back at the beginning when I started posting this restoration, I said this Hus-ski was missing the carburetor (and some other parts) and I would be looking for a replacement carb. Well. a fellow Hus-ski enthusiast (John I) saw that and kindly offered an HL 167A stripped down core so I quickly and gladly accepted his offer. Once i received it in the mail, I gave it a thorough cleaning, inspection and polishing. Then with new parts and good used parts from a donor carburetor I began to build it up. The following pictures show how I did this carburetor overhaul (hopefully I will get them in the right order!) I know it is getting harder and harder to find these HL 167A carburetors so I would like to really thank John for offering this one to me to make this restoration correct with the right carburetor.

cleaning, inspecting and polishing. For the polishing process, I use a variety of mini wire brushes and then a final polish with a rag.
