    Rattling sound driving me crazy

    All the CT70's I've had, have had a resonance noise from somewhere depending on RPM. Placing your foot or hand on things, while the noise is there, may help pin point the source. Exhaust guard, headlight assembly, engine guard, ect. If your T chain can be adjusted ('72K1/HK1-later), then its...

    CT 90 Clutch Friction Modifier lubricant from Ford

    That's the exact stuff I use in my CT70's. Its the best I've found so far. It has a very high zinc content. Great for the shift forks and cam too. 20w50 for hot weather, constant high rpm, or breaking in a new motor. I use the 10w40 for most of the year. I'm in NE Oklahoma.

    beginning restoration on a CT70 - not sure where to start

    With the internals exposed to the elements, that engine is going to take alot of love, but you do have a mostly complete bike to start with.

    I'm pretty sure the bare case from a 3speed is the same.

    4 speed manual clutch motor z50

    Manual says to set the valves at .002in and .002ex. Set the exhaust at .003. It will run a little cooler. On a K1 engine I had, it made all the difference in the world on the temps.

    How to clean outside of cylinder head?

    X2 on what OLD CT said. I think the best way is walnut blasting in a dedicated cabinet. I've had very good results with light soda blasting where the heavy stains are. Preserving the "as cast" finish can be difficult and is alot of elbow grease. I stay away from the glass bead blasting on the...

    Newbie with 2 CT70's

    Nice find. Would like to see the VIN's and engine numbers on both bikes when you get a chance. I'm betting your blue K2 has a low production number since it says 6/72. Thats the month that the K1's were stopped and switched to the K2 production.

    Road Trip Adventure on a CT70

    Sounds like an awesome road trip. I'm gonna strongly recommend putting a back rack(sixpack rack) and bag on this bike for tools, spare parts,(i.e, spark plugs, tire plugs, ect.) gas, food, first aid kit, and maybe a small tent. Your going a long ways.

    My 71 Red KO

    I've seen Mike's paint/body work first hand. Looks better in person. Would like to see some up close pics of the engine. I always like to see if the "as cast" finish was retained and how they did it.
