954 Engine...What Will I Be Missing?
Hye everybody. Couple of problems for ya....
1. I'm piecing together a 954 engine (hopefully!) and I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into what I may need to pick up on top of the items that are being shipped. I'm getting an entire lower block from someone (pistons, crank, rods, bearings, etc.) and an engine head (valves, intake,etc.). Now I'm not a mechanic, so I'm just basing this guess on limited knowledge, but in theory, I should have an entire engine block correct? Will I need wiring harnesses and such? Can I order them from Honda?
2. The reason I ask all of the above - my engine seized after a pretty hard bail. The stator cover blew out and the flywheel sustained a direct hit. I got the engine running fine after (it was a little slow because the engine oil basically exploded out of the stator while running) the bail, and I rode for about an hour worth of riding time, and the engine locked on me at about 75km/h. Anyone have any educated guesses on the problem? Crankshaft bent? Maybe just bearings on the crank? Let me know. Thanks in advance for any responses.
