I think it will be just fine after you finish cleaning it up.
Just make sure he runs Sea Foam in the oil and gas for a while.

The first 100 miles of Sea Foam in the oil, I would drain it and refill and new filter.

do that again until the oil drains out clean. Then just ride it and enjoy the thing. It will run a long time yet.

Jim, I see that you are still hard at it. Interesting find--by someone--



Folks, I want to tell you that Jim is by far the most knowledgeable Goldwing man that I know, and a well and trusted caregiver to the vast majority of Wings in our area. He is very busy most of the time but could be/should be the gurus GURU on this forum. But that is, of course, his choice.

He has helped memany a time, and I am proud to call him a friend.

This rebuild is well interesting if a poorly maintained wing can reach 300 000 mile.Then hopefully mine should last till oil runs outor £10 per litre

Update on smoking Gl1500...........I was able to save,restore and reuse 11 valves. I have one exhaust valve on order to replace the broken one from the #1 cylinder. The heads have been cleaned up and the valves have been lapped in and so far I havent run into any major problems. Parts on order cost $440.00 ....thats head gaskets, valve seals, valve etc. One picture shows a hint ofhow to keep head bolts, cam bolts etc in order.......hopefully the smoking problem will be elininated or at least reduced. Will update further as the job progresses.....Gm

I have been working on a high mileage 1994 GL1500 that I described in previous posts as smoking like a woodstove.(Nov23) Pictures posted initially showed the mess the heads and valves were in as well as a burnt exhaust valve. I wondered how far a properly maintained engine would go if this one had covered 300,000 miles. Todays pictures show the valves, valve seals, spring seats, springs, retainers and keepers being installed along with pictures of the heads ready to re-install. As I mentioned in the original posts the owner wants this done as cheap as possible but so far the parts have cost $450.00. I willupdate the progress of the project as I proceed........GM
