THANK YOU!!! You guys are great, thanks for all the feedback...

Last night i worked on the electrical issue that prevented my FL350 front starting and boy was that fun... Found 4 problems ficed 2 of them

1 - The start button on the steering wheel was not working properly. lots of corrosion.
Question - Any good button options without paying out the noise for a whole new steering wheel with a good button?

2 - The transmission "change switch" was not hooked up, it was broken, i grounded both wires (as post on this forum told me too) problem solved
Question - will this allow the "start" button to work even when running and in gear now?

3- The starter solenoid is toast. Once i got all the wiring working and i used the button to start it the solenoid33 stuck open and wouldn't shut off. Looks like i need a new one

4 - The battery drains 100% dead after the stuck open solenoid drained it... my batter charger was unsuccessfully in recharging it. New battery time, whoo hoo

Sometimes when a battery is too low a charger won't recognize it. Hook up another battery to it and try to charge it. Works for me most of the time.
Both battery positives hooked up to the charger positive and both battery negatives to charger negative. Also may try disassembling the seloniod on the starter,many times a good cleaning will help.

1.) The starter button can be dismantled and cleaned with some fine grit sand paper. Be extremely careful and don't loose the spring!

2.) YES! DANGER! It also disables the rev limiter for your reverse gear so the Ody will go just as fast in reverse as it did in forward!

I see there is one question you asked but we did not answer.
You said: When I pull out on the top of the front wheels I get about 1/4 of play not sure where it coming from.
That play is coming from the front (top) "J" arm bushings. They are worn out and it is a common problem with the FL350. I believe speedchaser makes bushings for us but not sure if he has any in stock right now. PM him. It would be one of the last things to do anyways. Your gona be busy.
Here is the link to speedchaser's site on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/182401775120?ss ... 1555.l2649

Also you asked about rebuilding the clutch. Go back and re-read the answers in the thread.

Thanks for the answer about the j arms, i suspected but was looking for confirmation.

Another question about the brakes, it looks like the lines have been dry for some time now, im going to get started on the master cyclinder first and repair whatever is broken at that point. How resisant are the wheel cylinders and brake calipers to failure?

If it was me I would pull everything apart and clean it. Just my opinion.
If you have to rebuild the rear caliper be advised that you can't get the dust seal anymore. But it doesn't matter because I have run mine without the dust seal with no issues. You can still get the main seal ring and the small o-ring.
Main seal for rear caliper Part: #45215-533-004
Cups for front brake cylinders should be common from Honda. I have not had to replace any yet.

Another update

Tonight i was able to resolve all my left over wiring/electrical issues. Today was a win

Work
    - Got the starter solenoid cleaned out and and now my starter button is up an working like a charm!!

    - The ignition switch had a dead spot that would cut the ignition sometimes even when on, fixed that with some electronic cleaner Yeah!

    - I also resolved a wiring issue with the lights now they work high and low beams!

    - Tested the alternator/generator (good)

    - Tested the CDI (Capacitor Discharge Ignition) (good)

    - Tested the coil/plug (not good)

This think had to have sat in someones barn for at least a few years...

Questions
    Im leaking oil between the pull start cover and the Engine... Im guessing that's a bad crack seal? thoughts?

More than likely -- Yes.
Pressure/vacuum test will confirm bad seal but it could also be the oil migrating over the vent system from the counter balancer area. This actually causes the starter to fill up with oil and cause electrical issues. Just another one of those oddy faults that needs to be corrected by doing the vent mod.
You need to pressure/vacuum test this Engine to be sure which one of those problems it is.

"if it was me I would pull everything apart and clean it"
Good advice here, you will know what you have and avoid unexpected failures. Your machine is over 30 years old and although they were well built to start with, things will fail at a certain point. Also just some good clean fun turning a wrench.

My experience has been it's better to go over everything otherwise u will end up having to constantly replace and fix things,it gives u a fresh starting point where u can spend ur wrenching time on maintance and there by lessening wear and tear in the long run.
Sounds like u got the bones for a great project.
