CB350/400 / genuine parts
« on: February 05, 2020, 12:35:14 PM »
Hi All   i have just bought some carb clamps to airbox (4 ) for my cb400 f2 they are Black in colour  They are marked as genuine parts   But another label states Made In India   My question is pre 1978 did Honda source supplies from either China  Taiwan or India  The guy i bought these from is adamant they are genuine  But my thoughts were back in the day all parts were Made In Japan I don't Know if modern type bikes are using foreign sorted parts ???  All your thoughts appreciated   Cheers  Ross

« on: November 27, 2019, 04:27:59 PM »
Just got my inlet rubbers back from Ash who has softened them Now I've come to fit them and noticed there are two different types ( didnt notice when taking them off  DOH ) Two marked 1&4 Two marked 2&3 Obviously to fit each cylinder   Question is are the numbers fitted uppermost on the corresponding cylinder  IE  cylinder No 1   mark 1 to top  mark 4 bottom  cylinder No2 2 to top  3  to bottom  ETC   Ive searched all service manuals and nothing on removing / refitting  Cheers Ross

CB350/400 / rear sprocket
« on: July 27, 2019, 12:57:01 PM »
Just fitting a new rear  sprocket and it seems a lot of play Not much rotational just a little bit of movement within the bolt holes of the sprocket The bushings seem ok But lateral play there is at least 1/8" old money Is this the norm ???    Also the rear spindle The PO has put it with the nut on the sprocket side Looking in the parts catalogue thats right   Yet in the service manual shows nut on brake side which i believe to be correct Your thoughts appreciated Cheers Ross

CB350/400 / oil seals
« on: July 10, 2019, 03:55:03 PM »
Engine rebuild coming on fine, after Head rebuild and rebore by Trigger.  Just one problem I didn't fit the right hand crank seal before bolting the cases back together. I now not sure which way it fits. Logic says looking at it , the metal side out. Is this correct ?
Thanks Ross
