CB750 / Re: Priming oil pump?
« on: March 19, 2019, 09:58:39 PM »
Trigger has been using Vaseline for the past 30 years to prime CB750/4 oil pumps. Works every time, no risk to oil galleries as the vaseline just dissolves.

I think we have been infiltrated by someone who has got a photo of a Sandcast, but thinks it a K1, and also thinks it's a UK bike when it's obviously a 100% american model. Oh well, he will tell us next he paid £1500 for it  ;D

I suppose we had better ask him if it's got really rough cast crankcases. How would it be a 1971 bike though?
It wouldn't !!!!

It's got a Sandcast oil filter housing on it. That photo also looks like its in the USA.  ???

Is it a K1 or K0 Julie.
USA K0 I think Roy. It could also be a Sandcast.

Welcome to the forum. That's a bright looking bike, either someone has made it look like a USA model, or it is a USA model, not UK model. The VIN plate down the headstock is a big give away.Enjoy riding it.

Guy I bought the bike from told me it was a model 750 F0 but I believe it should be referred to as a 750 F. Who is correct? Not that it matters lol.
Calling it an '0' is a USA thing.

Don't stick anything like brushes or little rasps through jets, it ruins the inside of the jets and upsets everything. Soak jets in carb cleaner and blow through with compressed air.

Have I got this right? Every bike that attends, even as a visitor must be registered? Can you just turn up on the day?
Yes, you can turn up on the day but you have to pay to get in. If you pre register, it's FOC for each bike and rider as an exhibitor, but pillions still have to pay.

CB350/400 / Re: Fuel Tank Cleaning
« on: March 14, 2019, 02:12:01 PM »
If it's a 400/4 tank, its got a big long filter in the tank attached to the petcock. Maybe the caustic soda had destroyed this filter, so any crud would be going straight in to the inline filter you have fitted. Another option is to fill the tank with pea gravel and soapy water, or similar, and shake like hell to help remove more of the rust.

Indeed Phil, your engine was in a terrible, terrible state, one of the worse we have had through here for major damage to almost every internal component and positively dangerous, just by the seller starting it that once, as you know.  I don't know what handbook the seller was using when he worked on that engine but all he achieved was total destruction of what should have been a nice running safe engine.

Humour / Re: HOW MUCH !!!!
« on: March 14, 2019, 09:29:02 AM »
My wife is an active participant in my spending, my two big hobbies are scale models and Bikes, with the scale models when we go to a show I give her the list and set her off, so she uses her superior haggling skills to get what I want cheaper. With the bikes she will scan the internet for and with me for the elusive spare parts and find the best price, works a treat.

Cheers
