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.

Well it's been 5 long years since this bike was road worthy. The family and friends involved in this bike over the years has helped me with moving forward. Once it get the tires and tags 1 riding season then I'll put it up for good. I'll keep it till the end. A real learning experience. So thanks for all the support getting this a reality.
