Hello! I've been reading this forum a lot lately and have a bunch of questions regarding the CT70 I'm working on. So, I figured I would make a post of my own. Perhaps we had better start at the beginning! My dad has had a CT70 stored in the barn for as long as I can remember. Frame number CT70-143244, which I believe to be a KO, correct? The license plate has a sticker from 1988, so I imagine it's been sitting in the barn for roughly 30 years. Growing up, I always wanted to get it running with my dad, but we never got around to it. So after getting addicted to motorcycles over the past 4 years, I've now decided to take it upon myself to get it running and potentially do some cosmetic restorations. Once I get the engine running, I want to surprise my dad with it and include him on the rest of the project. I'm fairly new to working on engine internals, but I know my way around a wrench and have a good concept of the mechanical parts to an engine. OK, now on to the bike itself. Specifically the motor. The carburetor was removed a couple years back, and the intake had since filled up with dirt and debris. Not a good start to the project. I took off the head and the cylinder and cleaned them up a little bit to inspect them. In the first picture, you can see the cylinder has some rust. Can this be honed out with one of those 3 piece hones that go in a drill? Or will the cylinder need to be bored out the next size bigger? Next up is the cylinder head. One of the valves was stuck when I removed the head, and I had to tap it out. After cleaning out the valve guides with a brass brush and cleaning all the gunk off the valves, I tried to reinsert the valves into the head to see if everything was freed up. The exhaust valve slides in fine, but the intake valve gets stuck and won't go in. I was planning on buying new valves since the old ones have a couple imperfections around the sealing surface. Do I need to send the head to a shop to cut the valve seat to match up with the new valves? I'm planning on buying a new piston because I'm having a heck of a time removing the old rusted on rings.The crankshaft and rod have some small surface rust on them. Is that a cause for alarm? The odometer says it only has 4,387 miles, so I really don't expect much to need replaced inside the case. I'm going to split it anyways though because there is gunky oil inside that I want to wipe clean. That brings me to my next question. I'm having a heck of a time getting the old gaskets removed from the engine! Does anyone have any tips to help remove the gaskets without scratching the mating surfaces? As far as parts go, where does everyone buy from? I want to stay away from the cheap Chinese junk out there, but I obviously don't want to spend a fortune on this project either. I'm looking for recommendations on a gasket set too. I've looked at CHP and MyTrailBuddy for some parts but was wondering where everyone else orders from. Thanks so much in advance!
