Complete engine rebuild

Postby firstgen513 » Thu Jul 01, 2010 10:57 am



Where can I get a good quality complete overhaul kit at a reasonable price? Will the carb kits be included?

Thanks,

I don't know that I've seen a complete engine overhaul kit. There are a couple different gasket kits, and you can get head gaskets, a carb rebuild kit, etc...but I don't know that they all come as a kit.

Thanks wingadmin,
What I have found is you can get an upper and lower gasket kit and a kit for the carbs. Even the local Honda dealer dosent have a complete kit. I guess I will tear it apart and see what i need as I go through the process.

Only use OEM head gaskets..$85 or so
There are several " complete" engine gaskets sellers on eBay. this one for a 1000 but basically the same as 11000 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda-GL ... 2eae116e2c .but don't use the head gaskets in those sets. $100
Carb kits, the best is randakk's..only rubber parts but all of them!!! you clean the jets. $175 Other carb kits have jets and are cheaper like 4 for $50 but don't include all the rubber and the float needles have reported problems. None come with new internal baskets for the float needles and they are often worn out..these can be brought separately one line here and there..I have sites somewhere


HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
RB
