Sound advice please!
« on: Jun 14, 2017, 18:45:12 »
I know you guys hate trying to deduce engine problems from a video but I'm desperate before I keep having this thing run and possibly damage something. It's a 1974 cb750 first time starting on a  top end rebuild, bored it to 811 replaced cams, valves, springs, rockers and bench synched. I know it can be something as simple as a valve, a cam chain or effing just needing to be tuned. I just have a fear it's something that needs the motor removed again. Any advice to find the problem would be great!

Sounds like a valve hitting a piston, so check valve clearances first and eliminate that from the list of possible issues.

Sounds like really loose tappets.

^^^ Exactly what he is saying
Don't run the motor anymore and I would take the valve cover off first and see if its coming from there, If you find nothing then remove motor and start opening it up to find the source

I have a bore camera on its way, it doesn't make the sound when its being kicked or turned over with no spark only when running. Think it's okay to run with the tapper covers off while I try to find it. Also don't know how much tension is on the cam chain, that can be a possibility too?

Its probably not the cam chain, more likely a tappet come loose.
Two years ago i had a rotten camchain tensioner come loose on my girls bike on startup after i freshened up the valves and guides.
New valves and cam chain after that sound *shudder*

You don't need to run it to find out if a tappet has come loose.  Pull the rotor cover, remove all 8 tappet covers and essentially go through the tappet adjustment procedure.  Check every single one for proper lash.
