Finished dismantling the "parts" '79 that I brought home several weeks ago. You know a GL1000 is just a lump if you have to use crowbars, oak 2x's and a sledge hammer to split the cases! Surprisingly, the main and rod bearings looked good - no copper showing so I pulled the mains and labeled them including labeling the box with the code from the engine cases. Crank looked Ok. Gears rusty so they will be tossed along with the cases.
