Looks good Ken,What treatment did you do on the engine before the paint job??
My old girl will be due for a stripdown and touch up mid next year so building a data base of knowledge prior to taking her off the road.

I completely stripped the engine and got all the cases blasted,then I gave them a good wash and blow out to get rid of any grit that may have been left.Then I wiped them down with prep wash/grease remover,let them dry,and then paint.I let them dry over night then I baked them in my bbq for 1/2 an hour at 120 deg,the wife wasn't happy for me to cook them in the oven,bless her,something about poisonous fumes :smoke: :lol:



My first wife divorced me over such antics :lol:

I had to get divorced to be in a position to do what I want when I want....I am currently rebuilding an '84 Suzuki 750 Katana, once that is done, the 907, then maybe a new toy.
