Taking off the cylinder head (Tempo Standard 1955)
The cooling ribs on the top of the motor needs a bit of cleaning! I've been looking forward to taking a closer look at the engine. I have never owned a motorcycle before, and I have never done any work on an engine, sa this is going to be really interesting and a "learning experience" as they say :)
I have only one rule on this project, and that is to not cause any more damage to it. If I later decide to scrap the whole project, I want to be able to resell it to someone with more experience.
So, off we go!
I applied a little rust remover to each of the four bolts earlier in the day, to loosen them up a little bit. Don't want to apply to much pressure when opening them. If the nuts get damaged in any way I am going to have a hard time removing and replacing them.
Taking off the top of the engine, to get a look at the cylinder. And clreaning it up a little.
Rust on the lithopress... Abe
Abe working to remove the rust. What you see is much of the oxidation that occured in the couple days since moving it into the studio from outside.
I used a pumus stick (Pumie brand) and it worked fantastic. Zud worked really well too. We probably had a combined 8 hours of scrubbing the massive amount of rust off using those products with a wire bristle brush, small scrub brush, and a rag. Then we moved it to the studio, wiped it down with a dry rag and brush and applied the navel jelly. It completely coated and neutralized the oxidation.
We plan on painting the litho press soon too.
