Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

Do not lose the oil restrictor when you take the head off.

Here is the answer to all your future questions about the heads.

Re: How to remove and reinstall your rear wheel

When I am looking for Honda parts, grease, and things for the bike, I routinely check the Honda car dealer for parts etc.. They have some of the things that go both on cars and bikes with the same part #'s and usually cheaper.

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

When I needed to replace my valves I bought another head off e-bay and used them. New ones cost a bundle.

search these #s on google to find new ones.

Re: How to remove and reinstall your rear wheel

Grease tends to fling off. It also turns liquid when it gets hot. Moly will not do either.

I apply Moly on all surfaces

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

Yes you can move the engine ONLY clockwise. Did the stems drop down when you removed the shaft and rope?

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

Once you get the camshaft out you can inspect the stems. Will they move?

When you put the cam back together torque the six bolts to 15 ft. # In 3 steps 5# then 10# and finish at 15# in sequence.

If the other side ain't broke don't fix it.

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

What happens when you turn the motor from the back? If you get any resistance then my guess is to pull the head. Put new guides in while you are there. Here is a link to my record of restoring bikes when I first get them. Scroll down and read the thread. https://www.classicgoldwings.com/forum/viewto...

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

Don't be sorry. That is why we like this forum. Only dumb question is the one not asked. Take spark plug out. Fill chamber with small rope. This keeps the valve rods from dropping out of reach. Take the back plate of the timing belt cover off. 2 bolts behind the timing wheel. Unbolt the 6 bolts hold...

If the bike is selling for $300 - $400 may work for you. RED Flags are still flying on this. Make sure you get the title and bike before forking over your money.

Re: Timing, ticking and other issues

To check the rod you will need to pull the head. Before you pull it

Take out the spark plug and feed a small rope (as much as you can) into the firing chamber. This will prevent the valve from dropping down.

Take the rocker panel off and check the stems. This may save you a head gasket.

Re: WTB lift table

I have had my HF table for about a year.
Yes fill the bottle jack up with fluid.
I have had no problems with mine either. I would recommend it to others. The front tire chock is good and holds the front wheel in place.
I made some foot boards so I can ride the bike up and not fall over.

Do not try to clean it up. Just fill it up with epoxy.
