In your next set, could you sneak in a picture of the bike? (doesn't matter what state of re-assembly) Thanks!

Great Pictures and detailed information. Thank you for sharing, very important to torque headbolts in staggered sequence.

There's a 1500 not too far away from where I live with amost 400,000 miles on the odometer. The only non-routine engine work it has had so far was a clutch a hundred thousand miles ago or so. There was also a 1500 on eBay last summer with 515,000 miles on it that was claimed to run okay. Just shows what you can do with plenty of displacement, detuning, water cooling and a slow turning engine.

Good job! perhaps too Moly, careful with the clutch ..
That valve was burned because it was poorly regulated, for no other reason ..

Yesterday I finished putting bike back together enough to start it. It fired right up ..had a lot of tappet noise for about a minute or so and then it stopped after they pumped up.........initially there was no smoke at all. After a few minutes I observed smoke coming evenly from each exhaust. I expected that to happen so I wasnt worried. (residue) I let it idle for a long time until the fans came on while I was purging air form the rad. I snapped the throttle several times while it was heating and the smoke began to subside until there was almost none. The engine sounds good except for an exhaust leak between the left header pipe and the muffler. At that point I quit...... This morning I went out at 7am and started it again ( temp was 0 cel (32 Far) It was parked on the center stand...no smoke at all... previously it would fill the garage and yard with clouds. I let it run for about five minutes. Tonight I will park it on the sidestand and see if it smokes tomorrow. I dont care about a little smoke on startup since most wings do that anyway. Now what it needs is a good long drive and then another oil change before it is put away for the winter. The weather will determine whether it gets driven or not. (Cant work on it today ,have to go for my swine flu shot) At this point I am satisfied with the outcome but I will have to see how it works on the road and with subsequent starts. Our season is pretty much over now so I dont know if or how much it will be driven. I think there is some life left in it yet..... I will postagain when it is all back together and tested further................ Thanks to all for your interest in this project and I hope that the info may help someone else in the future........... GM

GM, you gave me the confidence to buy a 1500 with 162k on the clock. After reading your posts about the one you have been working, I feel pretty good about picking this one up.

Thanks,

Jeff
