I'm with you. Only just learned how to do a bottom end a couple years ago myself and it is so satisfying! If I can do it, anyone can do it. Agree with your notes and #5 is funny because I just dealt with that. I knew from before to put the detent lever ... more »

All you guys that have used the Permatex copper spray- did you have any sort of lifespan issues? Meaning you assembled everything and you were good till for 20 hours, or however long. You didn't feel that after a certain amount of time you had to re-apply ... more »

Short version: if you have played around with copper head gaskets, what is your preferred sealant? Any other tips? Do you anneal the new gasket before initial use? Long version: I'm rebuilding my nephews YZ144 while being gainfully unemployed. It uses ... more »
