I am looking to rebuild the engine from my '67 (?) K-750M. I have never rebuilt one of these before, so I am looking for any tips/techniques/traps associated with this engine. I've been reading a lot of bike rebuild stories from this and other sites, but I haven't found a thread dedicated to rebuilding these engines. Any suggestions/advice?
I thought I would share this link. I have been searching for a comprehensive guide on how to reassemble a K-750 engine. After months of reading forums, looking at photos, translating manuals, and googling I came across this guy's YouTube channel. It is amazing. I don't speak Russian, but you can just follow along his step-by-step, near real time, set of HD videos that go from tear down to reassembly. I haven't found anything like this so far for the vintage bikes and I have learned quite a bit just from watching him go through the motions. Also, YouTube has a translate function, that works poorly, but may pass on some nugget of info. Good luck. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCco5uvNxkaXjCekYE-dA6jQ
After posting now and again as things have come up, but after seeing the new forum I decided to make this a running thing. So, to catch up to where I am now... I got my 1967 K-750 (mostly, who knows what it started out as) a few years ago. Things started off great. I had some friends with similar bikes and we made good use of them. I had to do the usual: - Wheel Bearings - Changed the 301 carbs for K68s - Cleaned up the PP302
Does anyone have any advice on refinishing cylinders on side valve motors? I am working on an engine rebuild and I need to clean/refinish the cylinders. I was considering either getting them hot tanked/sonic cleaned at the machine shop, or sand blasted. Then I guess painting them with engine paint. I have seen what looks like un-finished cylinders. Cleaned and left natural. Is that a thing? I don’t mind patina, but I don’t want rust/flaking paint. What do you suggest?
