Re: Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

Hi Bobbybiscuit, thank you for the links. I know Randakk as I did use his products on the carbs overhaul. For the moment I decided not to change the head gaskets, not this winter at least, I'll give it one more summer to see how it's acting. I decided dough to replace the valve seals and now I'm com...

Re: Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

I'm planning to go for the rope solution. One thing I don't get dough, should I remove the belts or it can be done with them in place and the engine to be turned form the stator bolt?

Re: Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

Hi Johnny, nope, unfortunately I do not have a compressor but judging by the compression test values I presume the heads are ok. The results on each cylinder are too even to be a faulty head...I think. I want to change the valve steam seals dough because it is a bit foggy on start up. By the way, no...

Re: Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

Finally the compression tester has arrived and I was able to measure it. I did follow Randakk's instructions The results are pretty good, 165 PSI each of them (+/- 1 PSI). this result being given I think I will leave the head job for another time, most probably I will change the valve seals only thi...

Re: Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

Thanks all of you for adv. I will get a pressure gauge soon and I will check the compression to see exactly where the problem comes from.
WingAdmin, I hope you're wrong (in fact I'm praying that you're wrong....) :?
Is there any other symptom which describe a crack in the block?

Re: Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

Thanks a lot for adv, I'll start to look around for parts. I did check around some feedbacks on gasket kits and it looks like Athena and Vesrah are the most recomended ones. I'll see what I can find more convenient as I'm on the other side of the lake where the GW parts are bit scarce :-) I will cha...

I know it's an old topic but I forgot to post the finding.
That hammering noise was from the clogged carburetors, once overhauled the noise was gone.

Re: Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

Hi WingAdmin, thank you for advice, most probably I will tackle both heads as the winter came in Scandinavia too :-) I don't know how much the leak down test will show because while the engine is could there are no bubbles. I presume the head gasket failed on a small spot which is affecting only whe...

Blown head gasket or just my paranoia

Hello from Denmark, As it says in the title I might need to change the head gaskets but I don't want to start this job untill I do have more opinions about it. except the bubbles you can see in the below youtube vide there are no other symptoms. I did check the plugs and they have a normal colour (m...

Re: Goldwing GL1100 Aspencade 1983, Cylinder 2 not working

thank you virgilmobile and mytown, found another youtube clip from the same guy who posted the previous one in which he said after carbs cleaning the noise was lost.

Re: Goldwing GL1100 Aspencade 1983, Cylinder 2 not working

unfortunately I cannot find him. I found this footage on youtube and the posts are disabled, I couldn't find him on any forums I'm watching.
The thing is that the knock on my bike is completely gone above 1500 - 2000 RPM. Also the the knock doesn't modify at all once the clutch is engaged.

Re: Goldwing GL1100 Aspencade 1983, Cylinder 2 not working

Thanks a lot WingAdmin, I hope you're right, the sound is quite scary.
As I wrote the spark plug on 2 it looks like new, you can see on the other 3 that are working but not on this one, it's not even get wet...it gets a bit warm dough :-)

Goldwing GL1100 Aspencade 1983, Cylinder 2 not working

Greetings from Scandinavia (Denmark). I did buy a GL1100 Aspencade few weeks ago The motorcycle was parked for 3 years and it barely started with the full choke on and couldn't run on idle. Anyway, I've changed the timming belts, did the valves, changed all the fuel lines + cleaned the gas tank. Aft...
