15 Nov 2017 - Rough CHAIN issues

I did a LOT of homework... ...

Hello all, I am reinstalling my head and am in need of some info. I am replacing the 6 head o rings part # 11143-32F00. I have looked all over and cannot find specifications for this part.

I'll more post pics later.

Symptoms:  Both cold and ...
