Loud snap when running

Post by nk1812 »



Hi the all. I recently picked up a 82 gl1100i and I tore it down because head gaskets were bad and had to clean everything out. I just recently got the engine put back together. Had issues running..had to re-prime the fuel pump. Got it work started and it was riddled with the choke for about a minute or so I put the choke back in and give some revs to about 3500 (max) and I heard something snap.... and it made a similar noise every 4th stroke. Either cylinder 1 or 3. And I turned it of quickly and tried to start it again and now it wont turn over. What are my possibilities?

Ditto on timing belt. Oh well, you have had practice pulling the head. You will have, at a minimum, two bent exhaust valves.
