Hi guys,
I'm shortly going to be removing my 1980 CX500 custom engine for rebuilding. I've never attempted anything like this before but want to make sure that I do it properly and don't cut any corners no matter how long it takes me.
I have a question related to the above thread and I hope you can point me in the right direction.
How do I know if I will need to replace the pistons or rings? Is there any build thread that you can point me toward that would provide illustrations for measuring etc?
Thanks in advance and I apologise for the newbie questions.

The yellow bearings that I have,although used,have minimal wear. I Guess I'll have to reuse them...Now there's a knocking noise coming from my fan area. I used a mirror and inspected the hub, and noticed cracks on the motor side.. Electric fan conversion time?. It's 92 today..do you know if the fan covers the entire radiator or just part of it to enable moving out of the way from the old fan shaft. Thx...no.changed my mind. It's a new fan instead.
I bought one for $30.06 online

Anyone know if the 650 head gaskets are still available? I'm not having much luck finding OEM anywhere.

Just drop me a PM mayhewej with your address (for postage details) and email address and I'll email you as soon as they arrive here. Cheers, Joe PS: plenty of CX500 piston rings still in stock
