No Kurt, just rubber gloves :bigt

I have this Gunk and another 1 gallon can of Berryman's. I think the GUNK might be a tad bit better.

I repainted the cylinders this weekend and also started polishing the rocker box covers. They have come quite a ways but still have a ways to go. And yes, I cleaned up the over spray with paint thinner :bigt

Jon, I've found that a large roll of aluminum foil is a better masking than tape. You can form it around things, and it will stay put. It covers a larger area, so no cleanup. Usually.

Thanks Red. Even now, it is hard to believe this is the same machine !

Hi Mark....it warmed up a little and above all else, I just couldn't wait ! In years past, I have waited and then find when the next snowfall comes in the late fall that I didn't take advantage of every opportunity to get bike things done. No more ! In the past two or three year, I've completed more projects than I did in the previous 10 to 20 combined. My goal is to have this Daytona road ready by June :bigt beerchug

Mark,

I am leaning toward blue with a silver stripe down the center. I have seen a couple of different shades I like and Honda cars seem to have the best colors. I saw a CRX a few weeks ago in this color and knew it was the one immediately. Here's what I'm thinking :

I got the carb manifolds on today as well as the new Rocker Box Inspection Cap Locking Springs. With the springs, I found that to make them work correctly, I needed to use a hammer and drift to get them into the position seen in the pictures. I also installed the new inspection cap fiber washers. I was going to mount the carbs today as well but the behind the scenes fiascoes taking place to make this all happen necessitated I finish up and mount them tomorrow ! So anyway, here is the progress from today.

Probably a trick of the photography but it looks as if the springs are bearing on the fibre washer rather than on the serrations of the inspection cap?

Hi Richard,

No, they are in the correct position and clicking with the inspection caps as they are supposed to be.

I’ve found that O-rings are the answer to the lost cap problem. O-rings that looked about right, picked from a box of assorted O-rings.

I’ve done a lot of miles and I recommend you do not fit those stupid fibre washers.

I thought about using o-rings but had these washers on hand so put them to use. If I lose a cap, I'll get some o-rings. I've got several extra caps to replace one if need be. Thanks for the advice.

Apologize for the long overdue update but was finally able to start back on the T100R today. I decided to have a look at the points and advance unit and glad I did. This bike should not have this type of advance unit in it !!!

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]


.......and also, low and behold, there is a hole with the broken end of a points pillar bolt broken off in the case.

[Linked Image]

So, after removing the points plate and auto advance unit, it is time to get to work. After carefully drilling through the broken stud, I was able to tap in an extractor.

[Linked Image]

Steady as she goes.

[Linked Image]

Remnants of Pillar Bolt removed....wheeeew

[Linked Image]

All Clear !
