Well alrighty then.
Having finished the body work and painting, replacing the throttle cables, adjusting the float level, valves, removing and cleaning the cam chain tensioner, and slapping in a new battery… I fired it up last weekend and took a spin around the block. I limped home on three cylinders to find that the #1 spark plug was loose and the #1 and #3 plug wire caps were loose. Replaced the plugs and repaired the caps and tried it again with great success! Some hesitation on acceleration and still a little rough idling, so next will be cleaning the carbs this week to include a carb synch. This means that I get to build a manometer! Will post a how-to and some pics when I do it. In the mean time, here’s a sneek peek at the CB750 as it currently stands!
