Looks sweet!
Take the dogs off for easier tensioning.
Have you seen the “will malloff” side plate?
It’s just an oval where the bar nuts are.
The rest is gone.

When a big chain de rails it comes off the rim sprocket almost instantly.
I’ve had this happen about 15 times last week.
Thought the chain tensioner was going bad.
Then the rim sprocket exploded.
Found the problem.

New rim sprocket and new chain it’s all fine.

I don’t pick up the 880 anymore🤣🤣🤣
The 881 is surprisingly fuel efficient with the same power as the 880.
That’s quite important when you burn 5-10 litres of alkylate a day.

There certainly will be an oil pump available somewhere.  Just not through the usual channels. The sprocket that drives the pump is plastic,it becomes brittle with age and breaks at the pump. Or the pump seizes and shears the sprocket off.

 

 

What bits do you need Mike ?
