When you ask him what kind of motor he has above he responds:quote:
i have no idea what youre talking about gheet, but if he pulls the cam box cover, he can see the followers, cam, springs, etc. it should make getting out the broken part alot easier.
"tex, if your bikes a cheater, its not a very good one"
I really didn't have anything to add to this other than +1 on pulling the cam box cover and being a smartass aboutthe 360 being a PARALLEL twin.quote: vtwin cl360 honda
why, because you believe i am incapable of learning how to work on my on bike?quote:
Sounds like you need to pay some one to work on your bike!
If your gaskets are old then it is chepa insurance to replace them anyway. If you just did them recently then you should be able to pull them apart without damaging them and maybe sneak it through.quote:
yeah.. not a vtwin.. i don't know what i was thinking.
it was a small little piece
(.002 heighth) a little less than a centimeter in length
and half that in width. I was working on the top left valve
and just putting the feeler under testing for drag and
it tore off the cheap tool and fell forward.
problem is, if i take the cam covers off
do i have to replace all my gaskets.
yeah I am halfway tempted to leave it in, but
afraid of engine damage.
i be more upset about screwing up my engine than
having to take it apart and not screwing it up.
well, i guess the recommended plan of action
is to take off the cam cover, look for the piece of metal,
if i can't find it... squirt oil down the valve and hope
it pushes the metal into the drain pan..
and if it still isn't there... just forget about it??
