You should post some pics as you go. I don't think many people (myself included) have seen the inside of those beasts.

Cam gear cover removed note there are no timing marks whatsoever I later painted some with white out but plan to engrave better ones later.
Looking in from exhaust side you can see the cam lobe for the intake is a bit chewed up cant see it here but the roller on the rocker also had some pitting:(
Transmission cover removed the book says to use a puller but I used some very small pry bars and a rubber mallet came of pretty easy

Stator cover and e-start gears removed (this is when I found out I had the wrong flywheel puller)
Clutch removed notice the star wheel on the shift drum I had to take that of to pull the sift drum out gonna be fun figuring out the alignment when it goes back in there was no way to mark it gonna be one of 5 or 6 possibles:(
A valve you say?? nope its the clutch push rod! I think the brothers had some older valves floating around and used those! This got some chuckles anyone seen this before?
Made these marks found the best spot with no tension on the valves at least this way no matter what happens as long as they are all in line it will be timed the way it was.

Cyl removed wow that factory case sealer goo is tough I kept the 2 upside down bolts in the head and took it all off as one unit hopefully not warping the head in the process. Looks like she was running a bit rich.
I love the V on the con rod!
Very crude case splitter but worked like a charm will be taking the measurements later and adding them in case someone needs to make one.
Case split fairly easy had to give a few small raps on the kickstarter gear to free up the back.

Now for the fun stuff waiting to hear from motoxotica to see what he has. Found a few places in Italy that have a lot of stuff but waiting to see what Dan can come up with.

That push rod is hilarious I would have never guessed it was anything other than a valve lol.
Hope you can find what you need looks like a really fun project.
