1981 Honda CX500C
I am looking for a running motor for around 350$. The motor I am looking for is a 1981 Honda CX500C. I am located in corvallis. Please let me know if you have one available.
Why would you redline any internal combustion engine in neutral? And for nine minutes? You should definitely not do that to your replacement motor when you get it.I dont know. It was the first time it started after 12 years. We changed all the fluids and after about 9 minutes of redlining in neutral, the valves broke off and bye bye engine.
I didnt do that. My dad did and this was about a year ago when I knew nothing about engines. Believe me I would never do that.Why would you redline any internal combustion engine in neutral? And for nine minutes? You should definitely not do that to your replacement motor when you get it.
Thanks. I keep finding some on ebay but shipping is outrageous.Yeah, the H1 is a 2 stroke so if there was oil in the gas it would run a long time. The CX with no oil or coolant ran for about 15 minutes IIRC. And after it died it was rolled to an area where Harley guys were camped and they paid $ each to hit it with a baseball bat.
And these days we get accused of "Harley bashing" if we comment on how much better Hondas are designed. My how times have changed.....
Anyway, good luck finding an engine in your area.
