Re: Black Knight, Not a speck of dust.

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.

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

Re: Black Knight, FREE Yule log video

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!

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

Re: Black Knight, The time is now

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

Re: Black Knight, The time is now



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:

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.

Thanks bud, added them to bookmarks. I just really prefer to use the OEM stuff when I can get it and afford it.

Its just a kooky personal "thing" I have. ;)

Re: Black Knight, Novice Engine building

Well, I never claimed to be a crosshatch expert. LOL.

It looks funny in the pic and may be steep but its there.



Rings gap from .229 to .254.right in the middle of assembly specs. 8)



$7 tool made for easy work.



4 of the cutest little pistons you ever did see. New rings and waiting for assembly.

Looks good mate. You should clean up the cast marks in the ports while you have the head off.

Re: Black Knight, Novice Engine building

That's the one. Most people just clean up the ridge at the bottom of the picture. Helps with gas flow. I am by no means anywhere near knowledgeable on the topic.
I know there are minor improvements to be had by getting rid of rough spots and that super smooth is bad for intakes due to fuel pooling.

Yup get rid of that big rough line. I did the entire thing on my 350.

Re: Black Knight, Race Bike!

I would match the port to the intake boot while you are that far Ino it. I would do valve seals too.
