Hey guys.

Anyone know the part number that goes where the red circles are?


I believe it is o-rings, that goes around the dowels, for the cylinder head. I can't find it anywhere on my microfisches. It just looks like if it's part of the stud. Your help is much appreciated!

Savor,

Is that a cb350? If so, I'm pretty sure that there's no o-rings that go where the red circles are. There are bigger, thin o-rings that go at the base of the cylinder liners. Between the cylinders and the case. But as far as I know there's no o-rings that go around those studs. At least I never put any there.

Yeah, it's a 1974 cb350.

That's weird. I wonder where those black rubber residue came from. The left side has most of the rubber remaining but the right side doesn't.

Would it be ok to just scrape off all the rubber?

The black residue may have come from the hondabond used to seal the head to the cylinder.

Ok. I was just being paranoid because the clymer book said something about not losing the o-rings and dowels if you don't want an oil leak.

Thanks guys.

they were talking abooutthe ones that are at the top of the casees. between the jugs and case. the dowels are obvious in the pic you have, they are the small about 5/8" long dowels that go over the studs and align the cyl and let oil pump though.
