748 Engine Refresh Thread

I figured I should put some of this stuff into one thread instead of posting a bunch of different ones.

Flying Bulldog helped me wrestle the bike off the engine and then lift the engine onto the jack.

No big surprises taking parts off the bike. A couple of dumb mistakes, including spilling an awful lot of coolant, but no major stumbling blocks.

Next up:

1. Remove the heads and replace the head gaskets
2. Remove the cylinders and replace the base gaskets
3. Replace the belts
4. Remove the stickers (Flying Bulldog insisted)
5. Reassemble.

Ape, I ride my 748 ONLY when the weather is absolutely beautiful, and clean/maintain it religiously during the winter. I thought my engine was clean, until I saw yours. Am getting serious wood looking at the pics of your tear down... ;)
Well Hell. That didn't work.

Anybody know how to post images in-line?

Photobucket or any other image hosting service.
...I would have done it this time, but I spent the weekend in Vegas for a class reunion and how I lost my play money is a long and terribly embarrassing story...
We're all ears... ;)
