Shadow 750 mechanic

I am having a damn time getting a 1983 750 vt to not leak oil at the head after an engine repair. The local paid mechanics cant do it. Its hit or miss. I am looking for a mechanic who can rebuild a vt750 1983 and have it not leak oil. Thanks, Steve

Most mechanics were born after that was made and may have never seen one before,I learned how to fix it my self but I was a machinist for over 30 years so I knew a little about machines anyway.

50 years (and counting) as a tool and diemaker has taught me that mechanics working on a preset amount for a build of any type usually results in slapping parts together for the sake of the clock, and not the sake of the actual job itself.

Motto: If you want the job done right, do it yourself.
