That one is the one I figure would be best. Lot's of members and lot's of different bikes. I posted another but thinking about it.
It would probably be too hard core and has a smaller membership anyhows.
So I deleted the link.

Yeah, that's a pretty standard restore, I wish that was all mine ever required, but I always get vacuum leaks in the weirdest ****ing places (typically intake side) which causes it to run lean as piss and for some reason these leaks are never obvious, I can never just hit them with starter fluid or anything to find them, I always end up soaking the entire setup in whatever and it never chokes, but it still runs like piss.
These 2 Honda twins (same exact motor) gave me the same exact damn problems and gave me the worst taste ever for carbs.

This is going to give more hits on this thread.
New Hood lift support locked in the extended position.
Got in the new hood lift support for the 2004 Chrysler Crossfire . I uninstalled the old. Dropped the top retaining clip down a hole in the lower part of engine compartment. I have snap ring assortment I could have used instead.
But I got lucky with a extendable magnet rod and fished it out. Installed the new shock hood lift support. Durn thing stays locked up in the up position. I wiggle the hood. Disconnect one end of shock and turn the rod round and round. I pull it out and use my strength to lean in and try to compress the rod, (being careful to not bend or break by being reckless).
No change. I reinstall the rod. I get frustrated a bit. So time to walk away for awhile. I walk back and check again 15 minutes later. Hood closes like it should. My guess. Between shipping and the cold maybe.
That shock needed to sit in the Texas sun and let gravity ,(in case of air bubbles locking hydraulics), and heat take it's course. Because there was no special button or catch to release that I could find on that lift support.
Another job well done on the cheap.

Ha, couldn't say I knew anything about hydraulics or why it would do that.
