The New Red VTR!!
Well it looks like the engine is not is good shape.
I knew that when I bought it, but I had hoped it was just the cam chain tensioners, but it is not. I checked them and the valve clearances and they are just fine. When I ran the motor the longer I ran it the worse it ran, and the worse it sounded. Looks like it is time for a donor engine!
Here are some pics, I started at just after 11 PM and finished just before 1 AM, under two hours!!
Yep the engine is out!!
To do the engine swap I need the special tool to torque the castle nuts, I did not have them, so i ordered them from Honda, $170 and they will take a month to get here!! I made my own.
