Here's the set now:
And the finished valve cover...
They're not perfect, but given what I started with they were never going to be . They look great though, and will look nice on the bike. Got the seals cleaned up too...the one for the right timing cover got a little tore up in the wreck, but should be salvageable...I don't think they're available anymore anyway. They're kind of loose and don't stay put very well, so I'll probably glue them back on with a little RTV.
Also, I saw where some people are cutting the middle bolts down and making them non-functional so the timing covers can be removed with the radiator in place...anyone try this? Love the idea of being able to inspect/replace timing belts without pulling the radiator, but I'm not sure if one bolt on each side has enough clamping power. Don't really want those covers coming loose .
Next...maybe put the head back on. I'll probably have some time tonight to play with it, and I would kind of like to get those cylinders covered up. I could probably get the head on, and cam swapped over. Maybe take the fuel pump apart and clean it/re-install it. Got a bunch of other stuff I have to get done tonight too, so I can't spend all night on the bike, but I should be able to get some stuff done. We got an inch and a half of snow at my place night before last, and it mostly melted off yesterday but it's still kind of cold. Really wish spring would just finally get here, it's killing me . I'm working on it in my driveway (garage is too small and full of stuff right now), so the warmer it is, the more pleasant working on it tends to be
