    CB450 Littler Weber Carb and/or Manifold

    CB450 Littler Weber Carb and/or Manifold

    I might mock it up in CAD and send it out for quote unless someone here wants to make a few bucks. Of course I'd much rather go with the original Littler parts if anyone has something in their garage..

    CB450 Littler Weber Carb and/or Manifold

    I was thinking something similar, the manifold doesnt NEED an S bend in my opinion, depending on the angle they could be straight pipes welded to a mounting plate at an angle. I've read up on custom plenum designs in the past, supposed to be smooth whenever possible but it might be a low cost...

    CB450 Littler Weber Carb and/or Manifold

    Its easy enough to create these in CAD and have them machined, but most of what I've seen is castings. Has anyone made a custom intake manifold like pictured above?

    Good info and suggestions, I know a few members on forums have 1 or more sets of these but I haven't seen them on eBay or in the flesh.

    '74 CB450 Low Compression in Right Cylinder

    In anticipation for the rebuild I ordered everything I thought I might need including a 70mm cylinder hone (FlexHone) I don't think its needed but should I do it anyway?

    There is definitely carbon on the valves and in the ring grooves on the pistons. I guess the plan is to clean and inspect everything as well as possible, replace seals and gaskets and maybe use some gasket sealer rather than putting them in dry. Fingers crossed, thanks for the help.

    '74 CB450 Low Compression in Right Cylinder

    Everything is off still, I pulled the torsion bars and valves out to check for pitting or if anything was obvious. I can reassemble and put rubbing alcohol to check as I don't keep Kerosene in my garage, I've used that in the past. I was trying to figure out if oil on the pistons could have...

    '74 CB450 Low Compression in Right Cylinder

    Only one location, about 1/3 of the way down the whole piston. I figured if my taper was within spec, measured in 3 different places, it would be representative. I might try more locations tonight.

    '74 CB450 Low Compression in Right Cylinder

    I'm sort of stumped. This is my 4th 450, "all original" and I was told the engine was never out of the frame with 4k on the clock. Since I purchased it was very hard to start but ran strong when it got warm. I check and found that the right cylinder read 75psi while the left was 120 (carbs...
