First time pulling engine
I have a non running 2005 Vulcan 750 for $500.
Clean rusted tank. Rebuild petcock and carburetor and a few other things. Finally got it running. After getting it started I started to do cosmetic stuff then I cut out the goat belly...
I noticed that the rear exhaust was cooled and had a lot of misfire. After reading up I Decided to do a compression test... 0 psi on both sides of the rear 😑. Then I remembered seeing some metal shavings when I changed the oil plus knocking when it was running... I’m thinking maybe the piston ring came off. So I’m gonna pull the motor maybe rebuild the rear top end or I’ll just send it to a shop.
Main just looking for advice since I know a lot of you guys have experience. Is there any other test that anyone has tried before pulling motor?
And and tips on pulling motor. Like steps or an order of how things should be removed.
It’ll be my first time pulling any motor
