Oil Filter Problem

Postby Gugo » Tue May 12, 2009 7:41 am



First..

Hello All!

I have GL1100 from 1981. Got it from Ebay 2 years ago. Started to slowly rebuild it. In 2007 i changed oil, sparks, filters.
Since than i made 11000km, and i wanted to go on a bike meeting, so at least i could change oil and oil filter again.
I wanted to take oil filter down, when screw on filter broke. I changed oil and made 1200 km since. But what to do now?
Was looking for service/repair manual to download, but couldnt find any. Please help :)

And my english is not that great, so be patient with me :)

You can find replacement oil filter bolts here. That will solve your problem!

For the service manuals, look at the top of the screen where it says "View Goldwing Manuals here" and click on the "here".

You've got a couple different options.

If you have a welder handy, you can weld a nut onto the end, which you can use to unscrew the bolt, so you can put a new one in.

It looks like there is a bit of the bolt sticking out that has been rounded off. If there isn't enough for a vise-grip to grab onto, you might be able to cut a slot into the end of it with a hacksaw blade, then use a flat blade screwdriver to loosen the bolt.

Lastly (and I would leave this as the last resort) you can use an EZ-Out. You drill a hole in the end of the bolt, put the EZ-Out into it, and slowly turn until it bites, then use it to back the bolt out. The thing is, EZ-Outs are made of extremely hard (and brittle) steel - and if you break it, you will never be able to drill it out, because it is too hard. So that's why I would leave that one for your last option.

If you use an EZ-Out, use the largest one you can relative to the bolt head diameter. If the tool is too narrow, you will snap it off.

Maybe you could take it to a machinist for the bolt removal (?) He would have every tool available. Take your new part with you if you don't trailer it over.


Don't spook the road sheep.
