drain the oil

drain it now

dont run it til you fix the carb needle and or float

gas in the oil can blow up in rare cases but in any case aint doin your cam bearings (first to go) and clutch no good

when you say "match engine to road speed" is it slipping?

HA! not yet

sorry about the time it took me to get back, school and work and what not.

ok so im still working on the fuel oil thing but i found out where the oil/gas leak (the one on the right cylinder i told you guys about) is coming from

its from the tachometer gear box where the cable runs into it, at the top of the right cylinder, i ran the bike for about 10 min took it up to about 50mph (which i think is as fast as this bike can go) and then looked all around the hot engine trying to find this leak

i saw a drop of the mix fall off of the tach gear box cover so i took the cover off and about a tablespoon (if i had to guess) of the mix came out, so i started the bike up again and i could see that it was bubbling out around where the cable ran into the gear box

how bad do you still think that is?

also i still cant get it to idle, it idled yesterday but not today >_<

probably just the o-ring around the tacho drive cable, hardware store should have the right size


in your original post it sounded like your float was sticking allowing gasoline to overflow into your cylinders and then into your crankcase be sure your carb vent is not pinched or clogged it should drain any overflow out instead of in

be sure your floats are working when you pull the carbs down for cleaning, 9 times out of ten your pilot jet is cruded up and the carbs need a good disassembling and cleaning anyway, you may even need a new idle jet if carb solvent doesnt clear things up, Id let it soak in a small glass or metal cup of Berrymans B12 overnight then use compressed air to clean every orifice

That or get the super-mega-muther-fucker carb cleaner, that's the name of it. And don't stick your arm or any rubber parts in the bucket. Only metal. The arm will turn red and burn, and the rubber will just go away. I always wear gloves, but I know a guy who didn't once. Once. It will destroy varnish. It will fuck your mother. It can't be reasoned with. And if you said mixture, that still is a bad thing unless it's a 2 cycle. And for finding oil leaks, spend 8 bucks, 5 on the oil dye and 3 on degreaser. Clean the crap out of the engine and use a black light to detect the flourescent dye as it leaks.




I drink gasoline for breakfeast and beer for dinner!
Any problem can be licked with a case of beer and a few sticks of dynamite.

the really good thing about Hondas:

you can still get most parts from the factory back to 69!

I highly recommend this outfit http://www.hondapo...m/fiche_select.asp

oh man what a day

ok so i had some photos shoots a bit south of here this morning and my client calls me and lets me know she is running late (this has a point just wait for it)

no big deal, i take out my laptop and hop on the web, i end up on craigslist and im looking for 175 parts, i find a ad for a cl175 K7 (1973) for $325 OBO in the same city im in, im thinking it sold right away or its shit, but after the first photoshoot and on my way to the next one i give the guy a call, he doesnt pick up but i leave a voice mail anyways

he calls me back we meet at his place (he doesnt try to kill me)

the bike is in ok shape, im thinking about using it as a parts bike but as im going over it the only issues i see is that it needs to be rewired and the spark plug on the right side is striped, the gas tank looks awesomely clean for the age, very little rust, it looks like it was stored in Arizona, he told me he found it when his dad and him were clearing out a barn, it was under about 2 tons of hay for god knows how long

i buy it for $285

but im thinking about tring to fix this one too, and not scraping it

im gonna get some helicoils from school

i really will get around to taking those photos of the '72

but this is the K7





yay cell phone photos

the best part maybe that i got this bike into a 2007 dodge caliber... i had to take the wheels and the handlebar off but still....

Ya know the part about finding the bike on Ebay, in the city you happen to be in, buried under two tons of hay in a barn for two years, the fact that it is in fantastic shape, this is all normal stuff for anyone that buys bikes a lot.

The amazing thing is, the dedication and resourcefulness that it took to get it in a fuckin' Caliber. Hats off to you dude!!! good find.

If it's a space issue just keep in a public storage. My buddy has 1 large enough to hold a car for $50 a month. Not that you could get a car down the hall & through the door.
