77 Goldwing Redo.

Postby fatslob » Sun Jun 19, 2011 2:16 pm



Fatslob here, I liked to thank everyone who helped with info while I was redoing the '77 naked Goldwing I bought. The former owner let it set for 10 years with all fluids in it. Needless to say it was a job to clean and rebuild all components. It's now ready for the engine man (over my head). Here's the latest pic.

Thanks again, great site Bob P. (fatslob)

That's a beautiful 77. What needs to be done to the engine?

Thanks for the compliment. I checked the fuel pump and cleaned it, replaced the oil filter (K/N) and removed the water pump cover to check for "gunk" but did not pull the impellor to check that or to check the seal. I'm thinking that with only 5980.2 miles, I'll chance that their still pretty good. The engine needs the carbs rebuilt, the valves adjusted and the plugs and wires done. I'll have him redo the air valve at that time. For right now , I'll have him replace the points and condensers. I will go to a electronic ignition maybe next year? Replaced timing belts as well. Being retired, cash is tight, so I'm hoping everything looks good. Oh, I also picked up a set of crash bars on EBAY and my son brought them to work to powder coat them black because of road rash they had, they'll match the frame. Can't wait to get it on the road.
