I put my 1987 T-Dub away for the cold season and wanted to freshen up the bike for the next riding season. I took the top end apart as well as the left and right side covers, bead blasted and refinished the parts. New valves, springs and seals on the head. Put a new set of rings on the piston after I cleaned it....was well within spec. The cylinder got a glaze breaking hone to clean it up as well, within spec. The bike only had 9500km on it but bieng 25 years old I wanted to give it a fresh start. Phase 1 (eng) complete, here are the pics!!!

Hey Hoogie,



What kind of paint(?) are you using on your engine? It looks like you're getting a better than factory finish!

Its called VHT High Temp Caliper Paint (CSP739 Satin Black) 900 deg F / 490 deg C. The company is out of Cleveland OH and should be available down south as well, I bought it at Canadian Tire.

Nice.





I should mention, to be culturally sensitive, thumbs up in the U.S. means good job.

Dude what is wrong with you? Your shop is cleaner than a hospital room. I need you to come and work in my shop for a while. ;-) Have a look at your cam chain guides while you are in there. They seem to wear fairly quickly. Did you go with a stock clutch? Excellent work!!!

whoa lapping with that suction cup totally sucks. You get it going and then the suction cup falls off over and over again. I rebuilt many motors but cheated. I put the valve in the head and got a small piece of tubing and put it on the valve top end. Applied some lapping compound and then put the other side of the tubing on a cordless drill and lapped it in and out on a low speed. Never came off and got it done without getting arm pump or tired in a quick time. Oh we also after cleaning the head used a japanese sharpening stone on the head to clean it real good.

Wow nicely done, my garage is a mess. I thought someone stole my TW but it was buried under my Jeep soft top.
