Re: CCM 608 resurrection

Engine is back out now for teardown and inspection following my buddy Pete's siezing his.
My sludge trap was no where near plugged.
I did find the top end tight and liner crosshatched nicely.
Piston clearance is minimum
Ring gaps were well within spec, except for the bottom ring

Re: CCM 608 resurrection

looks like my piston clearance is right @ .003", and ring end gaps were .010 and .013. Liner has a nice cross hatch.

Piston and cylinder look good, so a new set of rings to replace the broken bottom ring, and I should be good to go there.

Next up, head inspection.

CCM 608 resurrection

after reading thru many of the other project bike threads, I decided to keep mine all in one place here in this thread. I obtained the bike disassembled to major subsystems, but the motor was complete and assembled. How long it sat in this configuration is unknown. The gearbox is supposedly rebuilt,...

Best performance

I was reading my copy of "Rolling Thunder" just now. In the back is a list of specs for each year, and included in those specs the various bores and strokes are listed. It got me to wondering which, if any, configuration might be considered the hot rod for motocross. What say you gentlemen? ZoopDog

Re: BSA B50 sludge trap - how it works

Thank you for contributing to my education so far.

so, the oil pump pumps oil thru a passage in the crankshaft to lube the bottom end rod bearing, and as it passes the sludge trap, centrifgal force throws any debri into the sludge trap?

Hi Mark - my frame is CCM #72-8.

It was my understanding that early frames like mine were early Eatough copies of B50 frames, hence my assumption B50 plates would work.

Thoughts?

BSA B50 sludge trap - how it works

Hello All - I am a bit new to the BSA (actually CCM) world, so bear with me, I'm a learnin... In the aftermath of my friend's lubrication issue on his CCM, I began to bone up on the oiling system, and what, if any, improvements need to be made. I'm recuperating from an injury, so I've got plenty of ...

Re: B50 rear motor/engine mount plates

Mark - I didn't know CCM didn't use BSA mounts - thank you for that. I've had a bit of trouble getting hold of Joe (if you mean Joe Maxwell), but will try again. Meanwhile, do you make them? Barry - I have not talked to EDV yet, but I guess I need to look for CCM specific plates or make my own. See ...

Colorado - I'm new to BSAs - just got my first (CCM actually). I was looking for good pics of the sludge trap config and ran across this thread showing where the plug was located. Your documentation is very helpful to me, and I'm sure will be to others in the future. Thank you. I'm looking forward t...

B50 rear motor/engine mount plates

I'm in need of a pair of rear motor mount plates for a B50.

I've looked on Mark's site, and Joe Maxwells site, but didn't find them.

I'd buy new or used, either one, so if you have a link to a supplier, or a pair (or even 1) you'd like to sell, please let me know

Thanks
Steve

Re: Ccm: Seizure in Seattle

Pete, That bore sounds rather worn? What type of piston is it? Is it hepolite? Where did you measure the piston - it is usually 1/2in up from base of the skirt running for/aft of the motor which should be the max dia. Also where did you measure the bore - it should be 1/2 to inch below the top of t...
