Picked up a 71 Monday and just started to look for build threads. Like what you're doing. Keep it coming.

Hillbilly Primary Shaft Slide Hammer

Back at it lately. To extract the primary shaft from a CB500 crankcase use the rear engine mount plus a 36mm socket. Place a washer on the nut to protect it. Replaces the official Honda primary shaft slide hammer removal tool. Problem solved.

Here's my K0, first road registered in New Zealand late February 1971; I restored it in about 1996, IIRC.

It was a really good road bike, so I removed the lights and stands, put a 4-1 and a braided front brake line on it, did a bit of lockwiring, and took it to Phillip Island January 2003 when I was racing some real historic racers as well.



It was hilarious; WFO the whole time, did 2:10s, backing it into MG and buzzing down Doohan Straight with my left hand holding the fork leg....

Great seeing the old bikes on the track pjay!

All clearances and specs are good, crankshaft bearings, ball and roller bearings, starter clutch, rods, transmission, shift forks, all well within specifications. No apparent significant wear on anything.





All transmission dogs and engagement slots show no wear or rounding. Amazing for an engine with about 31,000 miles, according to odometer, and unknown history, likely involving some hillbillies along the way.



Bottom end is now going back together with new OEM Honda seals, primary chain and cam chain, and then to be slung into the frame, the rest will be built on from there.
