10/17/08 UPDATE! I posted more photos on page 2. Not all pictures are on page 1. I will constantly be adding more photos as I go along.
Many of you have heard of my starting/idle problems with the 610. Carburetion has been ruled-out time and time again. I sensed something else was going on. The engine has never wanted to idle down, sounded like there was a load on it even in neutral. Since I had metal filings in my oil when I first got it, I have now decided to overhaul it and make everything ship-shape. It turns out that I was correct- there is some valve damage that I will talk about later.
I don't like to take apart dirty engines and get the dirt inside 'em
A little gross.
My cleaning station:
A little better now
after removing springs
bottom of pressure plate
everything looked decent as far as wear
after removing plates
basket after removing hub
Area after removing basket.
Removing the starter gear with snap ring pliers
More to come. I'm uploading pictures of the case splitting, etc...
I'll try to ease off on the photo-over-obsession. The next batch of info/photos will be a little more interesting.
Comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm already ordering parts from George so before I know it, I'll be just waiting on new parts (after a little more cleaning.

Going up to Lagrange, Maine for Father's Day weekend with wife and friends and bringing quads and dirt bikes. Doing this sinstead of Laconia due to same old scenery in NH year after year. I have been researching lodging between Lagrange and Moosehead or Lagrange and Katahdan Mountain, and yeas I know did not spell it correctly, without success. Does anyone know of a lodge for a one night stay with a lounge? We wouold like a decent meal and cold beer upon our arrival and a good nights rest before heading back to Lagrange. willing to ride up to 3 hours. Anybody????
Anyone from the area or ever ride up there? My wife is from Millbridge and he folks still live up there. I think we're heading up that way for 4 or 5 days in April. From what I gather the trail systems get the majority of use from ATVs and sleds in the winter. But, they seem like they could be a real good time. Well over 100 miles of trail and you can access all different towns, general stores, and gas stations. Let me know if your in the area or know anything about the area (regulations, rules, registration requirements, etc.).
