So it’s going to go down to a bare frame and I’ll start from zero.
47 years of grime on the head tube………all numbers match.
Wiring harness comes out first………back to front. The brains of the operation are in the headlight bucket.
The important stuff resides under the front engine cover……magneto, regulator, generator, points, coil.
Generator body off, now the rotor has to come off the crank end. Enter Cycle Works in Shawnee, KS, makers of specialty tools for your vintage BMW restoration. The little tool above screws into the rotor, presses on the crank end and pops the rotor off of the tapered crank end…..slick.
Off it came.
Parts of the Cycle Works many-in-one tool above, and the description from the website below:

It holds the flywheel, removes the timing case cover, crankshaft timing gear, front bearing carrier, camshaft timing gear from the camshaft, rear main bearing and the flywheel.

So far so good…….tomorrow the heads come off.
Ok……this would make a very cool bobber………..just sayin’……….
