Hey Brodie I did some looking for my tap handles.  Cause they make cheap copies that look the same.

Mine are Schroder 40070, made in Germany.
https://www.amazon.com/Schroder-4-007-0-Ratcheting-2-Inch-16-Inch/dp/B001DZC9YG/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1540136845&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=Schroder+40070

they also make a smaller size/. But I lost mine years ago.

As per the workshop manual, I pulled the head cover and head

So Nice the head gasket came off in one clean piece.   8)



The jugs were stuck fast. 

Kanticoy offered up a neat trick. 

W center pistons at BDC pour an inch of alcohol and light them a blaze, as soon as it burns out.  Give them a good smack.



For DOUBLE BONUS POINTS I also made a Christmas morning Yule Log video!   ;D



And it worked like a charm.   :)



The kids called and invited us out to lunch, then a visit to the Reindeer Ranch and Maze.

It was a fun time.

Thanks for the link. I am going to have to get some.

Nothing quite like setting your bike alight to relieve tension!
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

I was getting pretty frustrated pounding on it w the 2 lb ball peen.

Then YES I lit it up and it popped free w just 4 good taps.

I laughed and felt much better.

Just getting the garage tidied up and buttoning up a few odds and ends before I get too serious about the big job.

O-rings for the front brake pivot cam in...

So got it together and back in the box until Im ready for it.

Thank goodness...this plastigauge was terrifying for me. 

I had Rachel check all of them.  Best eyes.   ;)

found they're all between .038-.051   so within the big end of Factory Assembly Standard .018-.048

But well within the Service limit .08

During the teardown I found a bunch more O-rings.

So, I went through the parts fiche and between Honda-4into1-amazon-ebay

I am confident they are ALL en route now.

Next time, go here:

https://www.theoringstore.com/

May be a bit more work getting the measurements, but you can get extras and its way cheaper than buying them from part sources and fast shipping.
