Hi Friends, I have a 1958 125 B and just had it restored but I am
told by the Harley Dealer there are leaks in the engine that make it
unusable and it should not be ridden...and that the engine must be taken
apart and rebuilt. The perplexing part is that it was already 'rebuilt' when I
got it. The leaks are from main gaskets and seals I am told. I saw recently
that someone was given high marks here for being an ace at properly
rebuilding engines like mine. It might be that the hardware was rebuilt but
that the seals dried out and are cracked and leaking. ?? In any case, it can't
be ridden like this and 'must be taken completely apart to fix it.' If anyone
rebuilds engines and can go through mine and bring it up to snuff, please
advise. They are small and can be shipped easily and I can send it right
off. I'm not sure that the Harley mechanics can do this job so I am reaching
out on the forum here to see what is available. Please give me a call.
Many thanks, Jeff 541 482-4298
