Pictures from head gasket install / valve adjustment

Recommended Posts

I've had some practice on my 99 GSXR 750, and this was cake compared to that! took a few times getting the cam seated and aligned on TDC (crank kept moving) but still a hell of a lot easier than a 4 cyclinder with 16 valves! BTW this impact drill kicks ASS

Curious if you at least put new rings, piston, or honed the jug since it was all apart anyway. Was the head gasket bad?

I thought it might have been as I saw some cream white color in the oil after putting new oil in, however the cooling system pressure test passed. I did check the valves previously and found the exhaust was tighter than spec, so I figured I might as well change the gaskets. I would have replaced the ring and serviced the jug if i had properly planned it out... such and easy job I'll plan to do the ring and jug the next time I check/shim the valves

thinking the white was just foam? and happens when its cold with new oil?

It's normal to see some bubbles in the oil sight glass. If it's turning milky color you have an issue. Keep an eye on it.

Good on you for doing this work yourself, I need a torque wrench, feeler gauge, and shim kit before I can dive into mine.

I have a 3/8 ratcheting torque wrench that seemed to work okay but the adjustments for inch pounds don't seem to accurate, need to look around for a better quality one... maybe I'll make a video next time LOL
