  1. '74 CL360 Cam cover

    Engine Discussion
    Can't find a thread for this so hope it is new! Anyone know if there is a torque setting for the cam cover bolts. Brenden from CMC mentions 14 in his video but doesn't specify what system ( ft.lbs, kg.m etc). Just starting to do the rebuild on my CL360. Incidentally I found that the clutch...

    Engine Discussion
    Hi All, I've been lurking here for a long time, this is my first post. Long story short, I'm rebuilding a CB350 to race in Novice Production Lightweight at the Topeka AHRMA race in June. Personally I'm not a brilliant mechanic, nor do I have any special knowledge of motorcycles or engine...

    Engine Discussion
    I've posted this once before but as there was no response I've concluded that I'm either extremely uninteresting, this has been answered before (I cannot find it), or I just chose a poor time to post and it was buried under other posts. I have 2 questions: 1. What do the different numbers on...

  7. Cam and rocker refinishing - options?

    Engine Discussion
    I have a 73 Honda CB350G. The cam and rockers very pitted/chipped, whatever you want to call it. Has anyone had these welded and reground? If so who provides this service and how much am I looking at paying? Also what steps are involved in this process, just for my own curiosity? I already have...

My first mistake was i didn't check and remark the timing marks before i took it apart. Missed that little detail in the manual. I think i have found the...
  9. want cb450 cylinder walls, intake cam

    Wanted Parts and Bikes
    I'm looking for cylinder walls/jugs for a CB450 in decent condition. I will be over-boring them to 71.5 mm, so if they aren't perfect on the inside, its fine. I do want all the fins intact and the exterior in decent condition. I'm also looking for an intake cam if anyone has one sitting...
