1971 Honda CB350
Owner: Dennis M. of South Carolina, USA
COMMENTS: This was a no cosmetic, complete engine rebuild including removal of the existing engine (engine 1)from the bike that lost a crank bearing. A 2nd engine was obtained by the customer, but it had piston damage due to improper timing & carburation. Engine 1's bottom end was used and the 2nd engine's top end was used. All were completely rebuilt & installed in the bike. The rebuild included replace piston & rings, replace all gaskets, replace valve seals, de-carbonize & chemically clean/wash engine, clean oil slinger, and upgrade to BoreTech electronic ignition. Installed new timing chain, tensioner, and 2 roller guides. Replace all oil seals & 2 crankshaft main bearings, and time chain guide rail. Clean & rebuild the 2 carburetors & petcock plus new fuel lines. Sync carburetors, replace handlebar kill switch & install new front & rear tires. This service took over 21 hours to complete.
