View Full Version : Engine Rebuild Question

May 19th, 2009, 05:33 PM
My friend just picked up a '78 CB400T for a good deal, although it turns out that it is burning oil in both cylinders. Weíre pretty sure it is from the head gasket since the oil is seeping out of the block from the edges of the gasket.

Iím going to help him fix it but Iíve never torn into a motorcycle engine before. My question is, if we go through the trouble of replacing the gasket, would it be a good idea to get the full gasket kit and do all of the gaskets as well? How about a full rebuild?

I wouldnít hesitate to do just the head on a car or truck, but can you get away with it on a motorcycle engine?
