Top end work

I just picked up an '84 TRX200, and it could use the top end redone. Does anyone have the name of a good place to send the pieces to that does good work?

Thanks,
Mike

Re: Top end work

Might need the cylinder bored bein that old, it might have ovaled it, mine was, you also need new valves, you know how to put them in? Do the work yourself, it saves a lot of money, unless you don't know how to(i don't, my friend did it for me). Just take the parts to the local shop.

Re: Top end work

Well, I thought:
check the head for straightness, cracks
New valve guides
new valve seals
new valves and springs if necessary
mill the head a tad if useful (not looking for a can of worms)
hone or bore the cylinder as necessary
new rings/piston as necessary from the cylinder work

Does that sound about right?
I don't know how to do the work right. I could easily assemble all of the pieces, but I'm sure there's machining and valve seat stuff that's over my head. I've just never done it.

Re: Top end work

does it currently run??

josh, u r assuming that he needs all that....he may be able to get away without droppin a penny....get the facts before jammin parts down the throat of the customer

always remember when doing work like this, do not just throw parts at it....the motto is dont fix it if it aint broke....unless ur wanting speed and power....but ur best bet before modding it for speed and/or power is to get it running solid before that...

u can check the head for straightness by using a simple straight edge...isnt hard to do...valves? why do you think you need valves and seals?

go back to the initial questionare....

1. does it run in its current state?

2. if it is running, is it stable?

3. if it is not running, is it gettng gas. spark, compression...

start with the basics....

Re: Top end work

AirBorn, thanks for following up.

1. does it run in its current state? YES

2. if it is running, is it stable? YES

3. if it is not running, is it gettng gas. spark, compression... N/A

Other questions that may clear things up:

4. Does smoke come pouring out of the tailpipe and smoke up the entire yard when running? YES

5. Does smoke come shooting out of the head somewhere when you gas it? YES

6. Is the outside of the engine completely coated in oil from oozing out of the top end somewhere? YES

Maybe those help the diagnosis, doc? I don't want speed, I want less oil consumption.

Thanks,
Mike

Re: Top end work

Dude, you've got a bad head gasket, and your rings are shot, nothin sayin the piston is bad, but if it is smokin FROM the head, you have a bad gasket, and if it has oil in the top end on a 4 stroke, you have bad rings, oil is passing them...so i would say see if you can get away with a top end gasket kit, and some new rings, and you will probably want to put new valves in, a total of like 80 bucks.
