Very nice Victor, but I think the cost would be prohibitive compared to the $1000 that my Postie cost me.
I find it interesting how the classic bikes are still bringing good money these days despite the current economic situation.

Those CBX 400 Mufflers look remarkably like CX Euro style.

Post 5555 for me.

Those are nice, Harry, especially the CB160.

Here's a mis-labled CB550 priced too cheap, even with carb issues:

Got the tank clean, but only by getting the last of the sludge taken out by my local soda blasting bloke.

$20 well spent. Took me longer to drive there than it took him to do the job.

Put it in and seal it up tomorrow. It is in the house tonight to keep it dry.

Your thrust washer is present on your cam in the picture Dave.

CX & GL Technical Stuff / Length of Camshaft Splines - CX650
« Last post by Barocca on 27-Jul-20, 14:03 »
I'm trying to do a final check prior to doing a "Shep" mechanical seal fix.  I believe that the thrust washer is already sitting on the camshaft and partly covering the splines (see photo).  I have about 6.3mm of spline protruding past (what I believe to be) the washer.  This would mean about 8 to 8.5 mm of spline protruding with no washer in place.  Other posts have asked similar questions (for instance https://australiancx.asn.au/forum/index.php?topic=14391.0) but I have yet to see a verified measurement from a reliable source.  So my question is; can I assume that the thrust washer is in place and confidently proceed with the seal replacement and reassembly?

Cleaned it all out, looked inside, and put the vinegar back. Give it another day, I think.
