Long time no see.

Time to do some spring maintenance before the season.
There will be quite a lot of pic's, so feel free to ask and comment.

I'm dealing with some valve issues at the moment, so let's take a look of that.






The starting point

Next step was to pull out the motor:









A bit of wear here and there..







then took the head off and did some leak test, to find out the failed one(s)...






...ladies and bethlehems, we have a winner!




Luckily i found a new (used) head + cams a while ago, so i don't need to worry about this one.. it cost me much less, than it would need to fix the current one.



Still need to order full engine gasket set and drop the new head at machine shop.

if kansityö is too busy (they usually are) one option would be hemi-motor heinola.

Looks like U got a wee bit more to bolt together than me wish I had that much space around the bike though...

Tested the coffee at majakkapaviljonki last friday, still good

Just dropping this here...

Hah, yeah luckily there is enough of free space to operate

I will call them on monday and ask their situation. I have no experience of Hemi Motors, do you have any idea about the price level and the quality?

Good ol' grandpa-org. All the knowledge of the world.
