CB350/400 / Who owns what needs updating
« on: January 10, 2019, 09:54:33 PM »
This poll must be very out of date now. With all our new forum members, especially those with CB400/4's it's time to update me thinks.

CB750 / CB750/4 water damage to pistons
« on: December 17, 2018, 11:22:37 AM »
Graham is stripping a very, very early engine today. This engine has been stood for not far off 50 years after sustaining chain damage to the crank cases. The engine has done probably less than 1000 miles as other parts are original and in excellent condition, although most parts will need replacing due to age related deterioration. The pistons were seized to the bores and 1 piston in particular has sustained a very similar type of damage to what I found in my CB400/4. Graham always insisted my damage was caused by water ingress a long time ago, with rust forming, eating in to the metal, with the resulting catastrophic damage when someone 'unseized' the engine probably with a big breaker bar and a lot of force and then started the bike and rode off into the wild blue yonder.
I think this just shows what damage can NOT be seen, when buying an old engine that has sat around for many years.

Photo 1 shows totally destroyed rings, lands and piston. Photo 2 shows the top ring being eaten away.

Misc / Open / SPARK PLUG DIAGNOSTICS
« on: December 04, 2018, 09:07:35 AM »
Found this on another site which I thought was interesting. This example is for the resisted plugs and as we know, you shouldn't use resisted plugs with resisted caps but it gives a good indication of what we can look at to help diagnose a problem.

CB350/400 / OIL AROUND CAMSHAFT - VIDEO
« on: November 17, 2018, 06:16:50 PM »
An acquaintance on Farsebook is rebuilding his CB400/4. He has just posted a video of the cam shaft rotating and it clearly shows how new oil, via the oil delivery pipes and in the baths under the pipes, sticks very nicely to the parts in top end. The revs are quite slow and i think a lot of the oil will get flung off under normal revs.
I thought it would be of interest some who have never seen this before. Vid courtesy of Eric Koester.

CB350/400 / CB400/4 rear hub bearing retainer
« on: October 16, 2018, 03:25:35 PM »
I have a spare rear hub here that I'm going to refurb but which way does the bearing retainer undo?. I have looked in Haynes and the Shop Manual but it makes no mention. Does this lack of mention mean it undoes the normal way, or is it a back to front thread, so......left or right to undo?
