name that part

Im rebuilding my engine and have a part that I can't remember where it goes. I bagged and tagged everything as I pulled it apart but this bag lost its table. Any takers on where this oil orfice goes?

Can't tell from the pic .... does it have a O-ring on it? What are the measurements? Is it one of the case half dowel pins?

No o ring, it is 15 mm long hole on top, looks almost like a 22 casing

Looks like one of the alignment dowels for the case halfs, or maybe the shaft for the small sproket between the starter/spragg clutch

Does it have a slight taper at the ends?

Let me check my parts bins when I get home tonight from work.

nah its much smaller than that... its the size of the of the oil orfices that fit in the block halfs, too small and light to be an alignment dowl, and all of those are accounted for. I've looked throught the manual and saw nothing and havent had much luck looking thourgh parts fiches either to find them.

Now that I can see the picture clearer at home on the PC, not sure where that puppy goes. Doesn't look like anything I have laying around.

On the drive home I was thinking maybe the timing cover alignment pin....

I think I figured it out. The only part I can find that looks like it is a Valve guide.

2003 Honda CB900F A CYLINDER HEAD | Babbitts Honda Parts House


I bought a new transmission set and a new sprag clutch (machine shop broke mine) both used and they could have been mixed in with the parts.

What's it costing you to rebuild the engine? How much are you doing yourself?

so far the tally is:

Transmission gears - 80
Crank and rod bearings,side cover gaskets, head gasket, and rings - 350
Flex hone for the cylinders - 35
Manchine shop to polish and check my crank and break my sprag clutch - 60 for the work 35 for parts
misc tools and such (plastigauge, 3m surface prep disks, Gasket maker) - 20

I'm doing 95 percent of it myself as I'm not looking to make huge power and I'm not replacing every rubber seal as they are still good and not leaking. I'm just doing a bearing ring refresh because I found some wear and had some smoke on decel.

The main reason for the tear down was transmission issues and jumping out of gear.
