Honda CB400f part 8

November 2003:
Finishing the top part of the engine. It took a long time since all the small parts were in a bad state. Everything was filled with dirt like for example the valves and their settings. Also the bad cilinder head of the fourth cilinder needed smoothing as something metal had danced around in there.

Long hours of polishing, smoothing and thinking (yeah...). All this work resulted into the following pictures:

cilinder head without valves the revised chamber
cilinder head with valves the bike is ready for the next step
here it is, looking good! to finally cover it all up
a very good idea... ...so it will stay on
