Got the oil pump primed tonight, 60 PSI on the starter with the plugs out. A little temporary wiring and I should be ready for fire this weekend.

Oh fun! :good: SOHC..... damn those engines are heavy. I about killed myself doing some tranny repairs on a a neighbor's CB750. I was woefully unprepared for working on such a beast at the time.

Looks like a great project to tinker with. :2_thumbsup:

It was hard to tell; was that smoke of water vapour coming from the exhaust?

Water vapor, it was 16 degrees F here yesterday, The vice grip is on the throttle since the handlebars are bare right now.

This was the first run since I completely overhauled the engine last winter. Bored 1mm over, valve job. New chains (primary and cam), new rollers, and guides. Bottom end bearings plastigauged ok. Besides the exhaust and air filters, the only other thing that isn't stock are the kibblewhite cylinder studs.
