I have not been doing anything to either of my builds for a few weeks now!! one thing and another, plus cold weather
just seem to have drained me of any "shed time" motivation.
so i have booked a week off from work, with the intent of getting some work done on both bikes.
have a long list of things to do and a big pile of parts to sort,
actually looking forward to doing some work

SHIT HAPPENS!!!!!

today was a good start to the "Get on with it" week.

took the bike apart slowly, its a long long time since i worked on an oil burner (had a slabby 750 back in the day *)



once i had*the head off it was blatantly obvious why she had been burning oil,* wasnt the rings as i had first though, but the valve stem oil seals, but the rest of the head looks great, no wear on the cam parts and valve bits.

youi can see which cylinders were worst by the piston crowns and combustion chambers

will get straight on to the web and order some Viton*seals and gaskets i require to get it back together .




SHIT HAPPENS!!!!!

pics of barrels back from the machine shop, today i gave them a good wash and scrub with hot soapy water to get rid of any grit left in the bores

and get rid of any grease and oil on the fins ready for a fresh coat of paint.
