I sure am! can anyone show me the location of the rear camshaft seal and shift shaft seal? also, im not sure if head block is warped. if it is,how would i fix it since i cant take it off?Are you going to replace the valve cover gaskets and rubber bolt seals?
The thingy that shifts gears is attached to the shift shaft.I sure am! can anyone show me the location of the rear camshaft seal and shift shaft seal? also, im not sure if head block is warped. if it is,how would i fix it since i cant take it off?
that animated diagram is awesome! it all makes so much more sense to me now. ok, does the cam need to come off to replace the seal?The thingy that shifts gears is attached to the shift shaft.
Remember the cam pulley?? You posted a picture.
It was attached to the camshaft.
The camshaft makes the valves open.
Link to the postI have the manual mentioned above and it looks extremely intimidating as heck!!:surprise:
yes I have one indeed.Crimson Wing,
Maybe I didn't see it in the other post, but do you not have a service manual for you bike?
If not I will get one to you. It looks like you really need a manual.
thanks tim! ill order the coolant pipe joint gasket and o ring. this is the fourth order from wsternhonda i am going to make and i pay $15 in shipping every time, this is really adding up haha. I hope i wont be needing any more parts. now this brings up another question, can i put the head back on without putting the pipe back on? or can i just put the head on and then put the pipe on when the gasket comes?No problem Crimson Wing. I just wanted to make sure.
Carry on. Keep up the good work.
well i havent even had a chance to clean them yet so they are still all yuky amd carbon covered and what not, but i have the day off tomorrow and im gonna scrub scrub scrub! Before i put the heads back on though i would like to know if anyone recommends new valve stem seals based on the pictures posted, any ideas?correct
Speaking of heads how do they look :blowingup:
okay, should i use the silicone lube for all the o rings on the water pump cover too? hmmm, is k 1 or any other solvent save in valve stem seals? also i found this on another forum, what y'all think?Lightly lube those o-rings (#15 above) with a little SILICONE lube and not an oil based grease or oil when you reinstall them and make sure you use NEW O-rings.
They can easily be pinched or rolled/twisted in this application and cause a leak. You will only find this out AFTER you start the bike up and it gets warm.
Make sure the mating parts are clean. Inspect closely after you install.
