Hydraulic Valve Adjusters

Post by Windy Hair »



Hello,

Thought I would throw this past some of you more experienced Goldwing mechanics. I keep having problems with a loss of compression on all cylinders. I have tried the center stand, plugs out, fifth gear, rotate rear wheel in reverse with no luck at all. I eventually have to remove covers and remove lash adjusters and do the bleed routine on them, then reinstall and Wing runs great. I have had to do this three times in the past couple of months. I have changed oil ( 10W-40 ), 3 Qt's each time with new filter a total of three times and have tried Seafoam and Marvel. This whole thing started when the carbs flooded and I had gasoline in the oil. Since then carbs have been rebuilt, plugs changed, all new filters, all new fuel, all vacuum lines checked, all electrical checked, timing belts changed. I have seen other postings that relate to this problem but no direct answer as to what is causing it. Welcome any suggestions. Thanks
