Nice going Kenny. One more VT750 on the road. Wish I knew about that internal frame paint. Now my bike is all saddled up waiting for me to finish the engine painting and can't put it upside down for that.
Are you going for powder coating on the frame? Or just paint?

Just search for "n00b engine rebuild" LOL!

Well, I'm flattered you want to read my thread. Prepare yourself for a very obnoxiously long thread. But I do have a lot of pics!

engine rebuild and more...

I'm not advertising this as the "correct" way to rebuild an engine, but it is my n00b (learning experience) way to rebuild an engine. But at the end of the day (or 9 months) the engine is running and no coolant or oil leaks (yet... fingers crossed).

Yeah I am gonna powdercoat. I built an oven big enough th do a motorcycle frame, that internal frame spray is good stuff but it is messy definitely want to do it before sandblasting.

Nice. One major step is done.
As soon as you have the center stand and the front wheel along with the brake ready, mount them.
That will give you the basic frame to start re-assembly

Hummm... the whole assembly process counts on having the bike on the center stand.
You will be better of hanging the bike than balancing it on a jack.

I started getting some parts together today to clean and start putting back on the bike and noticed the grommet on the overflow tank were the hose comes out is really hard and broke. Does anyone know where to get one would like to get a stock replacement.
