Honda CB900F engine replacement
This year I encountered just a little bit
of more than sweating on the cilinder head. Unfortunately my patience
does not collide with timing or planning too much so after the 9th
Pilki Search I decided to replace the gasket of the cilinder head.
The motor self was running sweet and the exhaust just had a new finish.
But that one didn't last too long as well before it started rusting. This
is warranty, so no problem there.
|Stripping the "original" engine||A spare frame that holds some parts|
|My stripped bike... not the way I like it...||One of the dirty pistons|
|Scraping the pistons just to see what happened||Other than dirty it is OK|
|But the piston rings have too much clearance||Starting to remove carbon, oven cleaner helps!|
|In dirty shape... This needs to change!||The new bike with the engine I need!|
|Starting to work on the bike, maintenance!||A little view on the situation|
|This is a check for how the cams are placed||Everything removed!|
|There were 12 shims that needed replacement! No wonder that it made so much noise...||This work could not be done without removing all parts. Besides the shims also the camchain was tensoined.|
|This is a hole where a bolt was put through to fasten the camshaft bearing. It work though...||Time for fresh brushes, these were beyond their limit (under) and I still had some on stock, of course!|
|This is what the spare bike looks like||Not too bad, and it rides good as well|
|But the engine is what I need, so here goes...||A bit of work, but I really wanted my own frame|
|Here is my stripped spare bike||The engine is placed in my frame. Black is good!|
|Only the exhaust was put back on, the carbs with K&N filters were placed back on the "new" engine||Last night rebuilding the bike. It really looks a lot better now and it's ready for more testrides|
|This oil seal was punctured. The problem is temporarily solved with a bicycles inner tire and some 2 componants glue. It is not the best thing and only holds for 2000 km I found out. But it did the job on the holiday!|
|This picture was taken in the Czech republic. I had a lot of fun with the other engine, it responded good and besides the oil seal leak I did encounter more problems. The third gear is slipping and on the way back home the dynamo stopped working. But, we made it thanks to Albert Zweiradcenter in Arnstein, Germany.|
