Awesome. I love old tools. (no homo)
I lucked into an old South Bend drill press last year. A little oil and a scotchbrite and it was good as new.
Been looking for a medium sized lathe this summer, even though I don't have power to my garage yet. Horse before the cart, I guess.
Well, here's a problem. When I took the pistons off the rods I noticed that both top rings were broke.
There was a little scoring on the skirts. What do you guys think?
The rods seemed to have a lot of play. I'm not sure what the tolerances are, I...
Agreed. It'd be rad if we could get a small write up on the application of paint, etc.
I painted my motor last year with hi temp paint I got from Pep Boys (don't remember the brand) and I didn't use any primer or clear. I'm not even sure if they make hi temp clear. I used the heat of the motor...

We def need more motor build threads. This one's amazing.
Joey, you gotta link(s) for polishing? I'm about ready to start rebuilding my CB500T motor and I want to polish my cam bearing housing, etc. If I could get mine half as...
Again. Amazing work. I just started my 500t build.
And thanks for posting a link to those jig plans.
This is purely selfish and if you don't feel like it, I totally understand, but could you do a write up on the process you used to hardtail the bike? (and possibly how the tank was painted?)...
