    Technical Help Forum
    Howdy. I'm about to begin some sort of bypass operation on my 1982 Silverwing to replace the camchain/tensioner and mechanical seal, but here's my quandary: my stator works just fine, so should I replace it because what the heck, I'm already in there? It's not the money I'm worried about, it's...
  2. That noise turned out to be a lack of *any* cam chain tension

    Technical Help Forum
    Some of you may recall that I got a 1978 CX running that had been sat for 30 years. I was concerned about the noise it was making and after having a finger through the inspection port, I discovered the manual tensioner was sat in its lowest position. Then I pushed the cam chain...that was...
  3. Engine Disassembly

    Technical Help Forum
    The current project (CX500 79 CDI) I am undertaking seems to have become a little more involved than I had originally thought it would and I have now dropped the engine in order to check the cam chain and replace the mechanical seal. Whilst it wasn't too hard to do, I do have a few questions...

    Hi all, I have a 1979 or 1980 CX500 (Not the custom model) and whilst I've got the engine apart, I've been convinced I should replace the stator, mostly because it looks like some numpty has damaged the wiring from it by pinching it with a bolt. I found this one on eBay, is this everything I...
