    Pulling the heads

    I think this is just a four bolt job (after the vlave cover, duh!) and they come off right?

    Will have to pull the cams as well... plus tie up the chain so that it doesn't skip a tooth.

        It's not too bad... I did it on my Nighthawk a few months ago... I4, but same basic deal. Didn't even bother setting the motor at TDC or anything. Just made SURE that I marked (with paint parker) what link went to what tooth, etc... everything that would make a difference to timing.
        Granted, it wasn't the "correct" way, but it went together perfectly, and worked like a charm.

        btw - I'll be doing this to my Hawk this winter... changing valve seals, let me know if there are any gotchas!

              I think he was talking to me.

              Gino is my "Mechanic".

                My apologies then, if it wasn't directed at me... clearly my method isn't the correct way, and god knows, probably not even the fastest way... but it works for me if you're careful.
                You shouldn't have too many problems, just follow along with the manual on how to set the crank, etc, or just make sure nothing moves!

                  I have heard of doing it the same way so I think your way would work.

                  Manual? There is a manual? CHEATER!

                    It's easier to kneel on than the hard concrete!
