Looks like I owe Teazer a beer! 

I put the cam chain in after this was taken. What I forgot were the parts I left in the parts washer.  Doh!

Guess I know what Im doing this weekend...

Build enough motors and you will learn from all the mistakes and forgotten parts.....

You're doing fine so far.  Just take your time and be kind to yourself when something doesn't go the way you expected it to and you'll be fine.

Thanks Teazer.  I figured I would be doing things a couple times at least.  Just the first re-do of many to come...

I definitely had some case sealant squeeze out when I put the two halves together.  I'm hoping I can do a better job this time and keep it clean on the inside this time.

Any suggestions/tips for getting the oil separator pan out?  I wasn't able to get it out to fully clean the bottom of the case.  Figure if I'm pulling it apart again I might as well try to get it totally clean.

I believe you just have to push the steel down to relieve the pressure on the rod, pull the rod out from the side to get those trays out.

Don't worry too much about it. I had to separate the cases on my first engine build 3 times.  ;D

Looks like your has the two screws and four rivets to hold the windage tray in place.  Earlier models had the long rod through them and were easier to remove.

You would have to drill out the rivets and probably best to tap the standoffs and use bolts in place of rivets.

Google CB450 windage and you will find some threads on hondaTwins forum.
