Suzuki Across Engine Rebuild - Well partly, New Rings, Cylinder Hone, New Valve Stem Seals, Blasted Cylinder Head, Lapped Valves. If anyone of you read my other thread my Suzuki Across suffered low compression, i was putting off a comp test if that was indeed the case and after rebuilding the carbies completely it was one of the only things left and sadly dry i had 70-70-70-70 and wet test i had 100-105-100-140. So i thought i'd start a thread here since its now developed into a project and put me back on my other bike that i was building which is a GT550. Stripped the top end off the across motor, everything is so tiny so i had to make a new set of valve spring compressors to suit the tiny little across motor, feels like a toy compared to all other engines i've done. Anyway here's some pics of the tools. I didn't need them to be super accurate just more smooth and free of any burrs and such so they didn't cause any damage. Stripped the head completely, valve guides check out quite good, a couple have the smallest amount of play that i'm not concerned by. Im an ideal world they would all be perfect but its as close to perfect without spending a hell of a lot. One thing i'm a touch unsure of, some of the valve spring seats fell out and have a shim and some others don't have a shim. Anyway i checked here : http://www.mccullochsuzuki.com.au/suziparts.php?y=1996&u=2160&c=36&f=102789 and if i interpret this correctly, all the exhaust valves have shims and all the inlets don't ??? anyone feel free to comment here. Some of the exhaust ports have oily carbon in them, so these will be cleaned up and sorted when the new valve stem seals go in. Pics are Exhaust ports 1 - 4 in order. I'm gonna be out of action for upto a week coming so trying to get as much done before tomorrow as possible.
