    Selling 1995 SL 650, plus parts to convert to 780

    Well hello there!

    My name is Marcin and I am from Oklahoma City. Just picked up a free 1995 650. Well, I found a 780 complete engine and impeller, for an amazing price, and will be swapping them out. I hope to document my journey on what I will be doing here.

    I will be asking my fair share of questions...I am sure some will be stupid, but I would rather ask and know rather then ruin something

    Welcome

    Have you seen the project thread posted by BlueFishCrisis?

    Also have a look at my signature links, if you have not yet already.

    Hey there! Yes I have read that and many other threads. I hope it will all go smoothly. The engine I was told has good compression and the only reason they were selling it is because the hull had a crack and they did not want to fix it.

    Printed out the service manual too (double sided)
    and have it nicely set up in a binder.

    Will my 650 CDI and all work with this?

    what year is the 780 engine?

    But I think no on the CDI, the 95 650 says 18deg timing and the 780s are all 24/28 degrees.

    The engine and all components are from a 1996.

    I guess now I need to search for those parts...

    The 780 ignition components won't get along with the 650 components

    Well I got a CDI, but I found out it doesnt have this part that is circled in red.

    Is that needed?
    If so where could I get one?
    Or would it be just easy to make?
    If so what material?

    All it does is hold the coils in. Stainless Steel.

    I was just wondering since it looks like a few wires are attached at that point with it. Did not know if it served as a grounding point or not.

    The bracket specifically holds the coils in place. The connection point is in fact a grounding point for the starter relay and Stator, at a minimum. Any solid ground point is however sufficient. The CDI is often grounded to its mounting bolts for instance. The entire box is grounded making it a "bus" so attaching to it at any point serves the same purpose...
