    Mar 29, 2017, 13:24:55
  • JustinLonghorn:
    Mar 29, 2017, 13:25:48

    Mar 29, 2017, 13:28:56

    Mar 29, 2017, 14:50:44
  • JSJamboree: Thats going to be terrifying
    Mar 29, 2017, 14:50:59
  • Sonreir™: o/
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:01:06
  • irk miller: It is such a great book.
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:19:59
  • Maritime: Yep, the movie looks like it's gonna be good too
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:22:11
  • tdub: hey sup guys
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:35:40
  • irk miller: Tim Curry played a good Pennywise...
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:35:59
  • Sonreir™: Curry had a phobia of clowns. No mirrors were allowed on the set. :P
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:37:00
  • irk miller: Haha
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:37:42
  • tdub: is there a good reason why on baclked out custom bikes i never see blacked out carbs to match?
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:38:36
  • tdub: is it taboo or something to paint your carburetors black?
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:38:51
  • Kamn: its a pain to paint carbs, lots to cover up
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:43:22
  • Kamn: OK, I'm going to check out the gas F250 I linked earlier.....dude says he maintained it well but it will need tires and ball joints
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:44:19
  • Kamn: I think its fair at $5500.....another G and its a good truck on the road
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:45:38
  • tdub: it can't be that bad, i mean all you need to cover are the brass screws and the inlet and outlets. seems pretty simply to me
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:46:09
  • tdub: it's not like you have to worry about movement issues seeing as the throttle assembly is the only thing that moves
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:46:36
  • Kamn: springs, levers....cant cake all that shit with paint and have it stick or jamb up
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:46:50
  • tdub: a thin coat of paint should be fine even on the springs.
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:47:44
  • tdub: besdies, just removing the one carb that's necessary to get the springs off shoudl be easy enough, i've done it before
    Mar 29, 2017, 15:48:43
  • Maritime: The other thing is finding a paint that won't flake all off after 2 months of gas vapor has been all over it
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:07:44
  • tdub: hmmm good point although high temp paint that you can use on the engine should suffice, no?
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:08:47
  • Maritime: If you can bake it after painting yes it should be ok
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:22:21
  • Maritime: Carbs should fit in a toaster oven and you can bake them outside in one of those
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:22:49
  • tdub: hmmm good idea. how do you recommend i bake the engine?
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:37:00
  • tdub: just run it briefly multiple times?
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:37:14
  • Maritime: I do sidecovers in the toaster oven too but the cases if or whole motor is not being taken apart then yes you follow the instructions on the can and do some heat and cool cycles to cure the paint, being careful not to get gas on it before it is cured
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:39:40
  • tdub: cool cool. thanks for the tips mari
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:49:00
  • advCo: Carbs won't cure from running the motor, though. Since they don't get up to temp.
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:53:55
  • tdub: right. that's why i need to use the oven or toaster oven
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:56:14
  • tdub: which is easy enough for me to do
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:56:23
  • tdub: or ill just leave it out in the hot sun lol
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:56:35
  • advCo: I have cured the stuff in the house oven before, doesn't smell too bad. Usually 200 degrees for an hour
    Mar 29, 2017, 16:59:45
  • Kamn: Id say VHT chassis epoxy paint....that shits tough, have it on a motor and nothing has made it peel yet
    Mar 29, 2017, 17:19:34
  • Kamn: Anybody need a frame Jig?? Its a Chop Source frame jig full kit minus the rotisserie
    Mar 29, 2017, 17:21:08
  • cxman: gas for what you need it for you wont drive it enough to go through the diesel repairs and make it pay
    Mar 29, 2017, 17:31:46
  • advCo: I'd be interested, but the shipping would be killer
    Mar 29, 2017, 19:00:44
  • teazer: Not really.  It breaks down to square tube + plates + hardware.  Great jigs.  Don't know how I got by without one.
    Mar 29, 2017, 21:13:51
  • GoshenCafe: owners of cb350fours. does the flywheel come off with an M18x1.5? The 350 twins as well as the 400fours use the M16x1.5
    Mar 29, 2017, 23:45:53
  • GoshenCafe: I bought an M16 and its loose. why is the 350f different?
    Mar 29, 2017, 23:46:12
  • GoshenCafe: Also, is the flywheel/magneto supposed to have a strong magnetism to it? Mines either week or non-existant.
