I think you can add a n insert like a large helicoil if I remember correctly. Then get the locks!

Head Repair

Hi Kev,

http://cylinderheadshop.com/ I've got triumph heads done by The Cylinder Head Shop and can safely say his work is second to none! Not cheap but you pay for what you get. Maybe worth a try.

Tappet Clearance

Tappet Clearance, who is right?

The Official Guzzi Workshop Manual... V700 & V750

Still on COLD ENGINE make the final adjustment
of tappet clearance. Correct clearance Is 0.10
mm. (.0039") to inlet and 0.20 rnm. (.0078") to
exhaust.


Chilton (1973)

The inlet valves should be
set at 0.15 mm (0.0059 in.), and the exhaust
valves should be set at 0.25 mm
(0.0098 in.). If adjusted proper~y, the feeler
gauge should be able to be withdrawn
freely with a slight tugging pressure.

Valve clearances

Noisy valves are happy valves! (within reason, of course)

Only the very early V700s (which had a different cam than later bikes) used the .10 mm and .20 mm clearances. For all others the factory recommended clearance (and what I use) is .006" and .010".

Head Work

New valve guides, exhaust valves, springs, skimmed heads, deglazed. The old girl should stop acting like the Exxon Valdez and be good for another 41 years.

I glued her all back together and to my astonishment, she started right up and purrs just like an Italian lady of a certain age should.
