Both video's work for me. Nicely done too.

If you like, I can transfer them to the forum's youtube channel so we can embed the video's into your post?

Yeah that's a great Idea. Also in need of more shirts.

Hello today on this cold day in South Florida. Well as some know the engine went down. The primary chain Tensiner I think is causing the chain to no spin the engine free. Plus it was getting noisy. So I was going to pull the engine out of my 77 and put it in the 78. Well I'm not going to do this now. Being it is winter in Florida that is the best time to ride I'm going to rebuild one of them that I have here and out. I ordered a complete gasket kit and I also have them heads from the 75. and a new set of valve seals. So I'm not getting in any hurry to pull the 77. Plus I ordered a new clutch pack and springs. Build time fellas Just need to figure out what one. I'm going to need a tensiner for my engine I have in there now but untill I get it apart I'm going slow..

Hello again.
I have an update on my 78 gl1000 bike. I figured I'd go ahead and pull the engine (again) it wouldn't turn over all the way. After further inspection I found that the nut on the back of the gen thinngy got loose (po) and somehow caused the magnets over time to crumble and break apart. I have a lot of noise in the primary chain on idle sounds like metal on metal at idle. When you get off idle it go's away. I'm guessing that it's time to change out the chain Due to the millage on the engine. So' I was going to find out of the chain tensener out of a 1100 would be a better fit. But the chain out of the original engine will work fine due to it only has 23k on it. My 77 is put up for the summer drained the carbs and filed the tank with treated fuel. Tinkering on my 78 was going to part it out. But after all the work I say no. This is my update on the 78 bare bone frame in the shop. Summers are way hot down here so riding and wrenching is done either early morning or late afternoon. But when I go back to work on the 5th I'l do less of both. Have a great 4th of July weekend.!

hmmm not sure the 1100 tensioner stuff will bolt to 78 ...might ...seems the 75-77yrs had the least chain tension.....78-79 were better ...sounds like there quite a bit of work on it to do with the rotor deal.....

I did some reading and found that the 1100 will drop in the engine. The 1200 will work also but the cover thingy needs modded some. So I just found a low miles primary chain and guide with the tensener. I found out what happen to the engine in the 78. PO turned the bolt on the gen and it got loose. Well by the time I got it figured out and retignened it it worked fine but the damage was all done. The magnets collapsed and caused the engine to make that sound I don't want to ever hear again. Puled it out and split the case this evening. Been on vacation but going back to work on the 5th. I'l have plenty of time to fix the 78 due to the heat down this way. To hot to ride right now so I'lll tinker on the old girl.

Have the engine block back together. Heads are getting finalized soon. Need to lap the valves change the seals and ad the 75 cams. New clutch pack new water pump,fuel pump, and a few other things. Moving slowly soon she will be back together then it's box her up and on the shelf so to speak. Miss my 78 almost there.

I see why it's going so slow.....that gold colored bike is taking time huh? Kind of hard to not ride the ones you can, when you can.
