All this hacking about with engines is good and well but will the thing actually go?
|I might as well check the valve clearances while the engine's on the bench. The camshafts are in good condition. These guys have opened the valves about 250 million times!|
|Also I repainted the frame in areas inaccessible with the motor in place|
|After that it's bolt everything together. I hit the starter and it fired up fine. A quick run confirmed that the whine was gone and the engine was running much quieter.|
