So the motor in my brat as some of you may be aware, the passenger side head has a valve stem sticking through it. I want to remove the entire head assembly and inspect the carnage before I actually pull the motor out and I have a few questions.
1. Do I need to drain the motor oil before I remove the head?
2. If there is no damage to the cylinder and or piston can I just swap out the entire head assembly with a known good piece without any settings or adjustments (besides torquing down the actual head)?
3. How much volume of oil is this motor supposed to take? I put just under 2 quarts in it and the dipstick is nearly full.
Thanks in advance. I would check my manual but of-course, the PO didn't have it anymore.
