Sourced some Threebond and sealed the cases.

Looks like I'm missing a bunch of circlips and other misc hardware. Will have to dig around the box the engine came in to see if I can find everything before I can continue.

Found a box full of misc parts which contained some of the parts I required - the joys of building an engine from a box of parts. There's a few variations of the YB100 with mine being the earlier model. Seeing as this engine was in pieces when I purchased it, I'm not sure if a piece I can't find is missing or just not needed. Currently referring to 2 seperate schematics and unfortunately my engine seems to have pieces from both...

Installed the kick start shaft after a bit of fluffing around with gear orientation. Also installed the clutch basket.

Turns out my clutch plates are at OEM measurements. No wear on them at all. I'll be using them again so I've left them in some oil to soak overnight. 1056088423_Photo15-01-1995836PM.thumb.jpg.79567d4ca430d5207c0bc8396c45edf9.jpg

Oil pump assembly installed. Love installing parts when they're all clean & freshly painted.
