this engine was recently "serviced" although I think they did the bare minimum of trying to hone the cylinders and call it good - the timing tensioner is seized and I'm guessing that resulted in THIS:


ignition timing was 90* off and that's probably why the bike was parked.

every. single. JIS screw. was. stripped!


I have some sympathy... I am, after all, working on the patio in my back yard (no garage here!)
but hey... do it right may take some time like my last build. the end result will be worth it

I'm always surprised by the number of "mechanics" and engineers that don't know about JIS. But then, I only learned about ten years ago. In my defense, our machines had maybe three metric fasteners. All the rest still ASE.

I've checked out the cam, it seams servicable
"fat cam" with 36.xx MM largest diameter on the lobes.
I THINK, this is the desirable "early" fat cam? (tach is the 10.5k redline version)

I was busy putting rockers/shafts in the appropriate bags to keep them together I have not yet inspected them for wear. I wonder if they can be resurfaced without hurting the performance aspect of the cam
