Daughter and I got the head and cylinder off. Everything looks great inside. Lots of cross hatching on the cylinders. Rings spin freely. No up and down movement from the connecting rod bearing. The spark plug hole is definitely stripped but the helicoil arrives today. Oil was clean. Someone must have adjusted the valves and did a poor job because at TDC you can see light through the intake valve and there is zero slack on the rocker. No PTV marks though. Got a new coil and plug wire on the way. Going to order up a gasket kit for it and throw it back together next week. It’s got a blue aftermarket oiled air filter that looks brand new. Gonna leave that for now. Contemplating a new exhaust just because. There are zero performance mods out there for this bike except a big foam filter. Most exhausts are just slip on’s which really is fine for this. I’m excited to get this thing running!

Haha we’ll see. Kids seem to enjoy it and I know my dad and I enjoyed it. Plus these things are way easier and cheaper to tinker on than the blazer. Need some short term projects to keep me sane while I work on the long term one.

I too am in the process of a tiny rebuild. It's great fun and like you said a good distraction from stuff you think you should be doing
