Honda 400ex problem

626 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Stephen01
Got a Honda 400 Ex. I recently did some top end work on this thing and went to start it back up after reassembling everything and it turned over but wouldn’t start. It sounded as if the valves were not opening and closing. So I looked at the valves while I was turning the motor over and everything was turning including the cam but it was not making the valves closed and open. If anyone could help me figure out what is wrong I would appreciate it. Thanks

I put it on top dead center and had the lobes facing down.
I will try adjusting the valves and let you know how it goes
OK so I’ve narrowed down the problem a little, when I take the valves of the camp spends over like it should but when I put it back on it don’t turn it off just the starter is turning. I’m thinking it might have something to do with the starter gear or something.
