Oh, now I get it. Man, that is confusing (at least to me but that isn't saying much).

Dan

I agree, it is confusing, and it had me wondering for a while too.

HHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I really wasn't confused in the job, but then, I glanced at the manual knowing full well I needed to bring the timing mark to TDC, check 8 valves, rotate the the engine, and check 8 more valves....without the use of a video, or external help.
I mean even if the manual text is wrong, you can't get the feelers under those lobes anyways... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :-[



I even sketched that silly cam position on my sheet, and numbered the valves as to which were checked with either a 1 or a 4....silly me...
my bike is running. :-X


anyone wanna take a guess at how many other misnomers/errors/blatent screw ups are in the original printing of the manual?

I have mine highlighted with a yellow marker.....I'll tell you there are 63 pages in that book with blatent errors, and additional pages with "errors" that can cause problems thur description/misnumbering/etc..

Mob, I'm really not trying to bust your balls, but I just want to point out that your cam location drawing on your worksheed shows the same numbering error that is in the manual. In order for it to be technically correct, 1 and 4 should be switched. With the cam marks pointing outboard, the engine is in the #4 TDC end of compression stroke position, and with them pointing inboard, it is in the #1 TDC end of compression stroke position. The 1's and 4's on your valves also need to be swapped.

Fred,

I was more interested in the 'organic' one you made during the video. I am not sure I understand these ones posted and the numbers (in the hundred) do not appear to match the one on Connie (in the ten).

With yours I can study the tapes and see how you calculated the replacement...hey I am sorry man, but I am a baby when it comes to mechanics....I am learning though!

I believe this is the one I used in the videos. You'll notice I did it facing the engine from the front with cylinder #4 on the left side of my drawing, since this is the perspective I filmed it from. Don't let this corn-fuse you.
