Cool...let me know if i can help in any way.....
nice work. where are you finding engine bearings ?
Nowhere....Luckily the ones that came out of the engine were actually in great shape.
All the same I looked and there only bits and pieces out there. No complete sets anywhere.
My bigger issue is finding valve guides. The shop said I need (8) of them and there are only like (3) on ebay and they are all in Europe. I think I am screwed. I have another set of heads and hoping the guides on them are usable. If not then it is a waiting game.
Does anyone have any
12204-KE7-305 Valve guides??????????
Easy job: And they deliver to you no problem..
I see that company all the time in searches but never ordered from them. Thanks for the heads up !
I have used them at least 20 times... Very very good..
also the schematics are very useful for bikes with out a manual ....
Excellent! That is good to hear. I wonder if they have anything for my 1983 Honda Civic? Need to check.
Progress! Got the short block basically done. Finishing up today, got nothing else to do!
And very very expensive...
I didn’t say they were cheap...
Yes they are expensive! But at least they have the parts. I am going to have to stop tracking costs on this project. I am so far upside down it is pathetic.
"Labor of Love" I will call it!
Unobtanium is often that way. You tend to forget such things when you're riding the finished product. Your body can always restock the lost blood cells.
And it's done....Sucks I don't have my heads back yet. This lock down sucks, but at least I am getting things done.
Anyone have any good heads laying around LOL?
Most excellent!!! I always have respect for folks that never give up, overcome the pain and suffering, and make stuff happen. I hope CMSNL comes through for you on the guides. You are soooo close. A fresh set of heads will be worth the wait.
