Question about Motorcycles
I have a 1983 honda cb450sc nighthawk and im still the original ownner i need to know what is the exact torque on the engine valve cover on both screws im putting a new engine valve cover gasket and new rubbers on the screws.every body help me.
Just so we're on the same page here, let's look at this exploded view:
I assume you mean the bolts that are #14 in the illustration, right?
The torque on these isn't much, it's only 6 - 9 ft-lb (72 - 108 in-lb)

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
With the indulgence of DickCanFixIt...
Almost always, in instances such as you have described, the main 30Amps fuse of the 93 CB750 (F2P Retro) would have blown. The main fuse is located along with the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the + cable from the battery terminal.
Additionally, once power has been restored, you may want to check the regulator and CDI as they are electronic and therefore prone to damage on reverse polarity.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
