The modern versions have a pin in the center so you cannot even get a standard hex or torx wrench in there.  The old ones, like yours, might have thread-lock on it to prevent tampering.  Heat may be needed to free the thread-lock.

Indeed!  ;D

The dampening should be a nice feature if it works.

Small steps, lots of work.

Heads were round as round can be... So I just drilled them.

Regarding the Torx fastener - that pin in the center is the security feature. You can get a "security set " bits at Lowes for around 10 bucks . This set will cover a few diff. types of security fasteners. Your project is getting there! If it's "bones" are good it is deff worth the effort.

Hello again, and this time I could really use some help!

What on earth is this sort of bolt? Normal hex socket won't touch it...
It's what bolts the ignition lock barrel to the three-thingy.


They are a anti theft bolt the rusty bit used to have a hex bit on it and they snap off when the bolt is tight, I can't remember but I think I had to drill mine out when I polished the part.

Hello   ;)

I'm still alive, the bike is alive-ish. I've talked so a shop around here who's willing to sandblast the whole frame and paint it. It would probably be the best solution. The whole frame is covered in rust, I do have some industrial rust remover/acid type thing, but it's nasty to work with and it's sort of a pain to work with, ventilation, reapplying top prevent drying and so on. The frame's not badly rusted, but it's everywhere... I'll take some pictures.

They recently changed the rules regarding motorcycle license. So i'm forced to wait 2 more years before I'm even able to legally ride it.

And this is also just one of several projects, I recently parted out a Saab 93 turbo, and I'm working on my -94 Miata, it needs a new engine.

Stuff will happen, eventually :)

Regards,
Kratoxy
