old boy in my town knows I play with old bikes so he asked me to tune up this 64 CA95E
8542 miles, ser.#CA95E-402**** do believe this is a Bently? what I need to know is the proper way to set the cam chain tension, it's low on compression, been sitting for several years, so I need to start and see what he's got, registration says 1965

That's a "late style"....Square back edge on fender struts and whitewalls give it away, as does FRAME serial number...You posted the engine number.... "Late" style started with CA 95-3106641... BOTH are considered "Benly Touring 150 models"...

Mr. Lane likely has a manual.......

Time to search the net..... Bill Silver of 305 fame might know.....Try the Honda 305 group on Yahoo with the question.... I can't remember if it's at the T mark or as the left intake valve rocker just touches the valve (like the 125 twin)... Got CRS bad!

well compression test says 140 on each cylinder so Woohoo! kicker ratio must be pretty good cause it sure don't feel like much :lol: fuel valve internal gaskets are melted into goo, but see they can be had so on I go

It should run at 140's....160/165 is normal, so you're a bit on the almost need rings side.....I believe the bike is 6V, but the points and coil should be able to handle a brief test running at 12V.....Lights won't however, and 6V bulbs are scarce...( I know you are aware of this, just teasing)...LOL...

I,ve got a 6v that will fit in for testing, don't think it would handle E-start but I ain't afraid of kicking it, I just need to find that big key to wind it up :roll:

it runs fairly well, cleaned the petcock to get fuel to it, set the valves and varoom

Glad to hear you got her "vrooming"!! I bet that bike would benefit VERY WELL from a some rubbing compound and good wax. Take off that old oxidized look..
