GL1100 engine wanted

Post by Ailingwing »



Looking for a GL1100 engine with under 40K miles on it. I'm located in SE Pennsylvania but am willing to drive a fair bit. I understand it'd most likely need a new water pump, belts etc. but just looking for an engine with healthy rings. I have good compression on mine but constant smoking from left side. Pretty sure it's a failing oil ring as I've tried EVERYTHING else short of re-ringing it which I've read is not worth the $. Thanks if any out there!

Here is the info when I replaced my 83 engine.
I now wished I had put in an 80 engine instead of the 83.

After 7 carb attempts I fixed it. Keeping it! There is a guy selling a really nice GL1100 with 26,000 on it in Baltimore on FB marketplace though. Touring package and all.
