Master cyl from a 1500 will also work for clutch and appear more plentiful and cheaper on eBay. Not sure if 1500's ever went to bigger than 3/4" bars. Maybe in later years.

Well engine has been paid for, now waiting for it to be shipped. will need to try getting gasket for back of motor, electric fuel pump and hydraulic hose and master for the clutch if I am gonna use the 84 clutch.
Hope it won't be terrible to put in

Garage
Here is my 83, still in storage, the 84 is under a tarp, bought the 84 ftom a Harley shop for $50, its just frame and motor, they were trying to make a chopper out of it.

So this 83 did run, but poorly, it might still have that motor left in it, i'm not too terribly conserned about it running well, if it rolls and can stand upright it might only be good for the annual custom bike show here in Alaska, they have almost no Goldwings in it year after year.

You need to pull engine(s) Mr obvious here.

The rear trans cover, and Clutch cover are interchangeable between the 84' GL12 Only, and the GL11 engines.

Then pull the rear engine cover (this will require a new rear cover gasket think they are about $26.00) then switch the output shaft from your GL11 into your GL12 Engine, the output shaft just pulls out and slip in no tools required.

You could replace the output shaft seal, while you have it apart.

And now is a good time to decide if you want to replace stator or not.

Then you can use the GL11 drive shaft in the GL11 frame.
Looking forward to doing this In a couple weeks I hope if I can get the rest of the parts and gaskets I need

He's around now and then. I think you'll be very happy with an 84 in and 83 bike.

I see a set of 84 carbs on ebay for 40 dollars, very tempted to grab them.

They look fairly clean to me and don't think I will ever beat that price.
