hi, i have a 1983 gl1100 which came out of a barn. runs very bad at low revs, spits back, sparks from exhaust etc. checking the cam timing i found the left hand side to be incorrect. following the clymer manual, i was unable to get the cam pulley to the right position without the valves fouling the piston, i assume the straight cut line on the pulley is the mark as there are also other pips and marks but not as obvious. eventually i removed the head and found at some point the belt had broken and the valves had hit the pistons. i removed the valves and spun them in my lathe and they run true, so i assume these are not the same valves. the cutouts in the pistons were quite badly burred, do they run close enough for these to be causing the valve / piston fouling problem ? i have removed these with a dremel and cutter but have not yet reassembled. any thoughts? thanks
