    If you read the waiver I signed I can see them changing it to NLC

    Evening - Can anyone recommend a good machine shop in Crawfordville or Tallahassee? I need to get some cylinder heads for a 1981 Honda CB650 checked and possibly machined.

    Anyone else happy to see it finally raining?

    The top end is just barely put back together (no cam, few bolts, etc) so I could paint it. It would take me about 20 minutes to get the head and cylinders off.

    I'm struggling to find a OEM head gasket for this beast. I can find some aftermarket ones but I'd like OEM if possible. I figured while I was waiting I'd like to have someone check the deck.

    Checking the head and deck are pretty easy. Straight edge and some feeler gauges is about all you need. Kevin's Machine down there can do that for you. I don't have the shop number (just Kevin's cell) but most any machine shop around will check it for flatness for free- Just take them the specs so they don't have to look it up.

    Kevin is just a few miles away but I've never meet anyone who has used him before so I figured I'd ask. I'll have to see if the specs are in the service manual, honestly, I've never even looked. Any recommendations on a straight edge?

    Wait...you're Buddy's or Red Hill?

    Kevin's place will do a great job, but if you need resurfaced it'll be slow. I managed the CQ shop on Duvall for five years. I've pretty much quit doing automotive machine work, but would help a FF out in need :nod

    You're going to spend some bucks on a machinists straight edge (think $75 and up), it isn't like a framing square. Best to just get someone to check it.

    Sorry, I didn't see this until this AM, far too late to respond.

    I've been consumed by a Lake Talquin project, but should be back in the saddle again soon.
