Bought another 84 motor that I can use as a parts bin when I begin to rebuild my original 84 Standard motor.

Craigslist is a wonderful thing. I am away from home for deer camp and luckily, the motor is 10 miles away from camp but 220 miles away from home.

Weren’t you supposed to be hunting deer Brian, not 1200s? :smilie_happy: :smilie_happy:



Multi-tasking Tony! It's nice to have cell coverage in the mountains. Makes me sounder what we did years ago.

Nothing actually, but I've been reading and re-reading the Ol Sparky build thread on NGW. It's inspiring me, I think I could do that! That would end my confusion on what to do with the '83 "parts" bike.

Finally got time to work on the '78, since I have owned her I have never seen the volt meter go above 13 and that was at 60 mph, idle was always below 11. I dug the main connection out and here is (was my issue).Removed and soldered. And now volt meter show's 14+ 2500 rpm's (choke on)

Polished, polished, polished. In all fairness, I only do a "deep" cleaning once a year. Today was that day. I was prompted by a Show and Swap on Sunday. I'm only cleaning it since I get to park up close if I enter! It's always interesting to participate. Nice bikes are really common around here, so mine is pretty ordinary - but it does generate some interest.

For the record, I still have some detailing to do. Nooks and crannies and all that...

Even though it doesn't look like it, I have spent two solid days in the garage organizing, recycling, and trashing all manner of life's detritus. My wife and I are both pack rats to a fault. One is bad, two is a disaster. She is the polar opposite of my ex, who couldn't leave a magazine on a table for an hour.

Anyway, although it still looks messy, it's an organized mess. Even though I moved them out of what I thought was harm's way, my previously nicely detailed motorcycles have a layer of dust on them now. I have lots of Vmax parts now on ebay and craigslist. There are a few Goldwing bits that I'm probably going to be posting here soon. Most of it I'm keeping...

I sure wish I had that much room to work. But my pack rat habits have the garage full!

Did some wiring updates last week. Replacing these connectors:

with these:

of varying pin numbers - and they lock together. Have the 2.8 mm and 6.4 mm. A much neater install as well. The new ratcheting crimp tool with interchangeable dies works a treat.

Weather has been nice for the last couple of days so riding has been the order of the day.

Cheers

I picked up timing belts for the Aspy tonight after work, I plan on changing them out this weekend, I crossed referenced the part numbers from Gates and Napa and found these at Autozone, they are made by Dayco/Duralast. Has anyone tried these with success? cost was $11.99 ea. The Honda belt on the right is one I changed on the '78 last year, same tooth count and length and the thickness looks the same to the naked eye
