Engine Builders - October 18, 2011, 02:37 PM

I am not too much of an engine expert....anyone know of a good shop for going over and rebuilding a 1978 XS400 motor that has sat for about 20 plus change years? I wanted to give it a try myself but not sure if it would be too much trouble plus I dont have a whole lot of room. Thanks

Justice racing engines. They specialize in small displacement engines. Building it your self isnt hard and doesnt take a lot of room. It take patience and attention to detail and a clean room. Send the motor out to have honed and the decks surfaced. Than take your time and try to put it all together yourself. Just remember you can never use to much assembly lube.

any local shop will be able to help out with a rebuild, parts kits are still available. Assembly lube is your friend.

Nubbs is that a velociraptor dual wielding dynamite and an Uzi Chuck Norris style while mounted on the back of a great white shark??? So much win.

Both my justice motors had issues. And they didn't assemble the 3rd head correctly. I will bash them for the rest of my life!

At some point, i will be trying to tackle a motor rebuild myself. The CB550

I've done it under supervision on an old chevy 350.

Never attempted a motorcycle before.

I have justice motors that have made over 1000hp and have ran into the 7 second range. I have won championships with his motors.

Maybe it was the car you put the motors into. I will stand behind a justice motor for the rest of my life.

How do you not assemble a single overhead cam Honda head correctly?

Drop a valve the first time you idle the car with a brand new motor they build you?

None of the Honda road racers will take thier stuff there
