PM sent.I got your PM just fine thanks. I have an OEM head gasket but I need -
Gas tank bolt rear left
Gas tank bolt spacer for front left
Cylinder to case gasket
Cam tensioner gasket
Exhaust port gaskets for head
Bolt for battery strap
Tracking number sent.I'm not a fan of a steel sleeve as a replacement of a Nikasil coating for a number of reasons.
Nikasil is a thin coating that can be striped and recoated, the preferred method. It's a strong coating and can be rebuilt a number of times with a factory bore piston. Millennium Enterprise does this.
Boring out for a sleeve means they take about 1/8in or more on each side for a steel sleeve. I've had them break thru the water jacket and leak, or it reduces the size of the water jacket. The steel wears and over time will need a oversize piston. Who makes those??
PM me if you're interested in a used cylinder. You could have it delivered in a few days.
That’s funny, I remember I used to feel that way but after working with it as a fitter for so long I don’t even think twice about it now. The thing that gets me is that mastic thats used to seal duct work, the sheet metal workers call it ‘pookie’. Good lord.Touch your clothes with that stuff and you might as well throw them out. Stuff does work but I hate it.t
Again, check the head for warpage, common on the 700. You don't want to blow a head gasket the first ride.Alright so the the head is at Bo’s, I got the cylinder from Dez, and now I’m ordering gaskets and tty bolts.
I see the manual calls for anti seize on the bolts. Anything specific? I was going to get some copper coat.
Also, should I use some on the base gasket and head gasket or no?
Yeah I am just using OEM gaskets and god forbid I blow one out on the first ride. Will be going to Moab shortly after getting this build together.Again, check the head for warpage, common on the 700. You don't want to blow a head gasket the first ride.
IDK the price of factory head bolts, but studs at around $125 would be a better option, an tighten 10% more then TTY.
Yes, any brand anti-seize on TTY, or blue Loctite on the bottom if you use studs.
Gaskets are normally installed dry, but can be coated if you want as ^^above^^.
