My first engine pull
Tomorrow, in the wee hours of the morning before it gets stupid hot (I live in Florida) I will begin a task the likes of which I have never attempted. I'm going to pull the engine in my baby. I have a 1989 vn750 and she's sick. I attempted to replace the HLA's a few weeks ago but forgot to do ONE really real IMPORTANT thing. I forgot to set the engine at tdc before I took the camshafts and such apart. I know I know, thats a really dumb mistake. But hey, I've never worked on bikes before. So I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what i could do while the engine is out that would help her run better and last longer. Preferably things that don't cost any money, I'm a student and I'm flat-broke. I.E clean certain things or w/e. I'd appreciate any advice of any kind! I have the manual, and this time, I will be following it to the letter. I plan on getting it done in one, long, grueling day. Maybe two, since I don't have class on Monday. But my goal is to be riding tomorrow night.
