    Do the TC 88 and 95 take the same upper end gasket kits?
    Thanks

    88'' to 95'' the difference is cylinder bore, you must use 1550 gaskets on jugs, the ones that look stock work best don't waste your money on the metal S/E ones unless you have compression through the roof. Other thing is do not use o-rings w 1550 head head gaskets, 88'' stock bikes came with them. Rest of gaskets are all same.

    Thanks Chopper....Just getting in deeper than I planned. Not really a mechanic but I do enjoy working on things. I have a pretty nice shop with a bike lift and plenty of tools and shop manual, just need to learn as I go.

    Thanks for checking...No I still could not turn them, only when I back off the bolts a little. In the middle of the night I woke up and thought that maybe I put the rear pushrod assembly on the front. I'm sure that would make a difference. I just changed it to the other one and it's in the process of bleed down....Sure hope it works.
