Back after 30 years

Now I just had the first roll-out with my 175 ctsl, only a few meters, than I saw an oil leak between head and barrel. Probably I forgot the little gasket between. But the engine startet and run.
I found the bike as a basket case completly in parts about 30 years ago and it was not easy to get all the missing parts and the knowlegde how to fix it together again. For many people it does not look nice, but I like it this way.
The engine got a piston from the ss and we made new valves from car-parts. The carb belongs to the cs, DellOrto MB 22. All the bearings are new, the wirering and and...

When I am back from our holiday trip, I will care about the oil leak and hope, that I can test the bike for few miles.

Thank you for your helps

Alexander

I hope I can get my CS running in less time than that, mostly because it means I'd be 86 by the time I got it running!
Congrats on getting it going though.

It also looks like you've got quite a nice collection of toys!!

It looks fine to me- good to see an MV back on the road instead of sold off as parts.
I appreciate how long it can take to build an incomplete MV- both incomplete parts and incomplete documentation. Working on an MV makes me appreciate the service manuals that Ducati, Moto Guzzi, etc, provided.

In fact it was a great effort for me and I had to learn a lot to understand the technic of the engine and the whole bike. And it is not so easy for someone like me who is not a profi to get all the informations about the development of the different 175 MV models.

So it is a great pleasure for me to work on such a project, it is like a kind of archeologie. Now I am looking forward to the next project: there is a wreck of a 175 CS and once more I am looking for parts and for ideas how to repair all those things to get a real MV again.

So, for these 175's, there weren't any workshop manual's made? Ever?
How did you put the engine back together with no info?
Just wondering.

See Ya!

Indeed, therebis only a part list and the owners manual, you can download from the homepage of the Switzerland MV AGUSTA Club.

I bought a second engine and than I always could have a look how it works. I am not the great mechanic. Some advice I got here from Ivan, thanks.

I will tell you how the bike runs when I have repair the oil leak and can ride for some miles. Now we start a holiday trip for some weeks and the little bike has to wait.

I was sort of wondering how one goes about getting the cam timing right, with no workshop manual to tell you a damn thing.

See Ya!

Thank you adrian. At Chris, I did with a Plate which shows the degrees. I hope I did it right, its not a problem. The correct times you can take from the owners manual.
