I picked up a 1985 Vulvan 750 the other day and it is basically a rolling chassis and the motor is out of it with the heads off. I am going to try to rebuild the engine myself since it is nearly impossible to find someone who work's on Kawasaki's around here!
Anyway, my first question is:
1-Does it matter which cylinder the heads go on? Is there a specific one for the front and one for rear? Can I mix these up?!
2-what am I getting myself into with rebuilding this engine? Is there anything I should look out for?
3-Can I do without the cooling fan? Are there aftermarket one's which I can buy?
The seller said that one day the timing chain slkipped and bent a valve and that's why the bike was stripped and the motor apart and out of the bike. He said he was going to getting it fixed at the shop, but then the guy with the shop moved. I looked at all the valves, and none appear to be bent.
Did I get hosed? I paid $500 CDN for the bike, and I love it! I had to have this bike no matter what it is going to cost me to get it running.
I look forward to reading your replies.
