Finally got going on this, carbs are soaking, EZ out to get at the oil filter and clutch cover, and neither the clutch cover nor the oil filter will budge with every screw removed. Posting a picture to show the sorry and sad state of the cam chain adjustment bolt, stripped in the middle and going into a sloppy thread in the heads. At TDC, the tensioner is supposed to relax but there's hardly any noticeable difference in tension when I turn the engine over with a pick pushing on the tensioner: what it means?! It has 9k miles, quite a few of them put on it by a 13 year old. A lot of cheesed bolts, and is it worrysome that while the adjuster screw is the correct thread and pitch, did Honda really put a.square head on it?!
