I bought a can of this stuff today. The directions say to put on 3 coats, but it doesn't say how long to wait after that before putting it in the oven. I don't know if I should put them in right away or wait a while. Any suggestions?
Hello there. I have a question about not turning crank counterclockwise. What does this affect?It will probably be spring by the time they go back on the bike, it's outside buried in snow!
I wire-brushed and sanded off whatever clear coat was left on them, then just cleaned them up with methyl hydrate. It's rattle can VHT Wrinkle Plus paint, no primer or clear coat. 24 hours after the last coat I used a knife to peel off the paint off the ribs, but that did not expose enough bare metal to my liking. So I used a foam sander with some pressure to get a rounded exposed edge. I am concerned about leaving bare aluminum exposed, so I might just clear coat it.
If doing the cam chain adjustment or adjusting the valves, a turn counter clockwise will loosen cam chain tension. If you are using the bolt on the front of the crankshaft to turn the engine, a turn counter clockwise can loosen the bolt.Hello there. I have a question about not turning crank counterclockwise.
