    Cap the vac port if the petcock is manual. It sounds like it may have been changed on this bike.

    push in on it while you turn the motor

    one way will push it out the other will pull it in

    do not forget the dowel and oring that go in the lower end of that its not just the gasket that seals it

    Got the frame back from powder coating a couple of days ago, Rebuild has begun.

    Turns out, while the bike is a 79 deluxe, it has the front end of a 82 Custom with 35mm forks and the CRK fork ears dont fit. Also the gauges don't fit in the crk instrument panel.
    I like the bigger forks, so im just going to pick up some clip ons and a 7" Bucket and i was able to buy the smaller gauges on ebay for $40.

    Getting the bottom race in for the stem bearings was the worst experience of my life. took about 2 hours and some busted fingers but i got it in.
