yamabond, hondabond, etc are gasket makers. If you have a seal already you don't want to slather it in that stuff (unless the manual tells you to). Occasionally I will use a dab to hold a seal in place while I set up the parts to go around it, but never cover the seal with it.

The weak point in any old honda is going to be the gaskets, espcially the head gasket. The shift seal should be replaceable from the outside, at the best case you remove the circlip and it pops in, worst case you use a drift to seat it.

I use the microfiches here:

looks like all the seals are still available from honda.

'slather' was an exaggeration. A bit of yamabond around the clutch pushrod and shifter seals would do the trick, so what if I give myself a hassle in 35 years.

Again, I am not sure that it is a good idea because you are talking about using gasket maker on moving parts. Usually Honda used seals instead of a gasket because the part needs to move and that was the best way to seal it while still allowing movement.

If you put yamabond on the seal and the pushrod then the pushrod will flex the seal when it goes in and out. I use a dab on the seal mating surfaces that don't move (like the flange in the cases) but not on the moving parts.

I was planning on putting yamabond on ALL the moving parts, clutch plates, points, inside the brakes... I heard it works great as a valve guide lubricant.

I don't know why it becomes necessary to explain every little detail, it should be obvious, OF COURSE I MEANT THE MATING SURFACES (*) AND NOT THE F-ING MOVING PARTS.





*-by "mating surfaces" I mean OUTSIDE of seal to engine case.

somebody's grumpy.

If you don't clarify these things, some newbie is gonna read it, do it and then....well...you made him/her cry.

If you don't think it happens, remind me to show you the cb750 head that was destroyed by the phrase "install the cam straight up"

I can't believe that Krapfever used the terms silly and sillies and we let him get away with it. This better get us back to the douche bag discussion or maybe even fucktard. I feel my manliness slipping away.

what, you mean he doesn't talk with a lisp and drink rum punch cocktails in real life. I just assumed he was being himself.
