help with timing belt replacement 1982 gl1100

Postby hondarookie » Sun Jul 10, 2011 7:07 pm



I am replacing the timing belts on a 82 gl1100. Can someone tell me exactly what position the valves should be in at tdc and how do you tell which position each one is in? Also is there a screen for the oil pump that is accessible without taking out the motor?

Ok,I checked out that site and they do have a good tutorial for the timing belt. One thing they didn't cover is what you do if you don't have any marks on the gears on either side from when the belts were taken off. I get the technology part of it. What I don't know is what position is the compression stroke? Is it hen the piston is all the way down or all the way up? And, it looks like bother the number 1 and 2 piston fire at the same time and the number 3 and 4 fire.at.the.same.time. is that right? And why position should the valves be in?

Rotate the engine until the t1 mark shows on the fly wheel. when both valves are closed it's compression stroke for that cylinder..you can wiggle the rockers. on exhaust stroke..intake solid exhaust can be wiggled. If you have already removed the old belts it's tougher. But if they are on just rotate the engine until both cam wheels are on their marks and yoiu can wiggle the #1 rockers...as seen in the How to. Mark the crank shaft position just in case it's gets moved so you can put it back. Gls' are wasted spark machines while both 1/2 and 3/4 fire at same time only one is on compression stroke at each spark.

Thank you. That should help immensely. One more question: will it run rough if there is any contaminated oil remaining in the bike? I heard that if there is ANY moisture in the oil whatsoever it will run rough. And is there any way to check to see if the oil and water pump are working correctly?

Water in the oil will not make it run rough but it will ruined your bearings so drain your oil and replace..cheap insurance..note if it comes out milky colored it's got water..blown head gasket most likely, if the oil is thin and smells like gas leaking float needle..= carb rebuild..most likely.

There is a weep hole on the bottom of the pump housing.if water or oil is leaking out or if someone plugged it your pump and/or seals, o rings are leaking. Could be bad o ring or seal or crush washer, or pump. Take front elbow off if the pump doesn't wiggle probable one of the others if the pump wiggles you need to rebuild or buy new pump.

Blue water..the rest oil leaks.
