    looking for a PV motor expert in Orlando

    Ive got a couple of 800s and need to pick the best parts and make one out of them.
    I need some insight and guidance as Ive never done a PV motor before and sure dont want to do this twice.I can bring all the parts to you and will re assemble myself.

    I think I can get by with just new rings,seals,gaskets.
    motor only had 30 hrs on it,dropped a PV.

    If that is the case in dropping a PV, make sure you split the cases and check the bearings or in the very least flush the block and see what comes out. Shavings and chunks can be a real problem if left in the bearings or crank.

    I think Im going to use the crank,cases and one jug from the other motor
    it has low compression in one of the 2 cylinders.
    But would still like for an expert to look at the parts for me.

    split the cases and inspect the parts, any questions on any of it just post what you find. The 800 is a fairly simple motor to build. Do as leejax01 said-split cases and clean and inspect very close-cleaning is 3/4 of building a motor-one missed piece of metal will ruin all your work. You can tell a lot on the crank from a good cleanup and visual inspection, as well as using a feeler gauge to measure big end side clearance and bearing noises. You will know if you have a bad main bearing when you spin it. Good ones are silent and have a solid feel when you spin them, a bad bearing will stand out-noisy and a looser feeling when you spin it-youll notice the difference in the two if you have a bad one-hard to explain.
