I got the head back. I'm just working on the valve clearances. I have to change every shim. Luckily only one shim is unreadable.
I cleaned the buckets and recorded the shim sizes. Installed the cams and measured the clearances. The math is simple:
The recorded shim size plus the measured gap minus the desired gap equals the new shim sizes. I never installed the chain, I just left all 4 Pistons down. I'm done and happy with the results. Tonight I'll install the chain and guides etc. I'm hoping to put the engine in this weekend!

I decided to spend some time in the shop while I waited. I replaced the fork seals, front brakes, front wheel bearings and front rubber on my 600. Itching to get on the 954!

cheers

I managed to get the engine back in. Just working on the lower mount and swing arm etc. It is all going back together with little effort.
