    Tapered Head Bearing Help

    bearings too loose will usually CLICK when using front break hard and will cause the steering to wander side-to-side if too tight. new bearings may need readustment after the first 600 miles.

    No headlights No fuel pump

    High resistance caused by corrosion will overheat and kill the thing. you can see the corrosion starting here on the top left terminal.....greenish.

    87 700 fuel pump relay intermittent failure?

    very often a melted plug like yours will destroy the stator if any two wires contact each other.

    Engine oil recommendations

    in a hot climate it's best to use what Honda recommends, and that's 10W40 or 20W40, isn't it ? 10w30 is for cooler northern latitudes.

    Leaking fuel pump

    But i HAVE worked in shops, fixed many V-4's in the Honda line (Magnas, Sabres) and still never saw it. thanks for the fire warning though. of course we're talking OEM pumps only, not Chinese replacements, which i would expect to leak ??
