I'm an idiot who half asses everything because I spend too much money on shitty motorcycles at swap meets.

I suggested what to do, but you don't want my advice.  LOL.  I'll say it again anyway.  If you remove it, the hardened rubber may crack, so be prepared to buy a replacement.  It's really nuts, but Honda put the same design pickup screen on the CB750.  Either rinse it clean or carefully and slowly pry it off and hope you don't crack the hardened rubber.  The screen is keeping the crap from going back up into the motor, so all the shit is on the side you're looking at.  I've been scraping my screen and rinsing it clean on my CB750, but I'm an idiot who half asses everything because I spend too much money on shitty motorcycles at swap meets.

hahahaha. Ill just spray w penetrant and brush over it w shop vac and call it good.  THANKYOU.

BTW..."Better replace it all. Itís trash".  didn't really answer the question I asked.  LOLOL

Yea I like thread sealant w teflon its good up to 550 degrees F.  Never hardens up. 

Really just about anything will work to prevent galling.  anti-seize, locktite...etc 

The Stainless and aluminum combo is just the worst possible mix for galling.
I'd say SS in SS is the worst with no proper lube. Welds itself together real good. Square thread valve caps on the nuclear submarines had to be ground off before they started using Neolube.

LOL.  Seriously though, it's really not worth risking having to replace it if it cracks.  Mine is basically glued on from years of hot oil, so I'm not fucking with it.

I use brass bore brushes to get between fins.  They dont last as long as Id like.

And you got to run the drill slow and cautiously, reversing directions, as they are really easy to ruin.





Stripping the heads on ALL of these was fun.



I pulled the O-rings and rubber gasket out of the head cover & caps.

Heat and Vise Grips did the trick though the last one was a complete bitch, I won the battle.

Swapmeet Louie would've had a cow!!! Miss that guy.   :'(





The right tools made pulling the clutch basket a quick and easy task.



Found basket was damaged by the gear.  So the fresh replacement is going in.



Gotta dig out the new springs.  Got the discs soaking in oil bath.



Started this at 330am Now 630 Time for a NAP!!!   ::)
