Progress

I have sealed the tank, this stuff is really easy to work with and not at all harmful, lets hope it works when I fill it with petrol.

Thanks Gum

Pipes

Post by Gum » Thu Oct 21, 2010 3:13 pm

Pipes are fitted, this one had a big hole in it from the axle nut, some bending and they are both in shape now.

Image

Carbs are on and balanced up nicely.

Image

The rear guard is all on and cleaned up.

Image

Pipes all tight, got a tool from Steve, works well.

Image

Both pegs are on, new rubbers, thanks to Steve again.

Image
Clutch assy is all on, just not enough play at this stage.

Image

New throttle rubber, yes Steve, got some new grips and bar ends from Europe, look good they do.

yes undo that 13mm nut, the clutch adjuster is the slotted rod in the middle, find the title that goes something like CLUTCH PUSHROD ORDER INFO in the ENGINE section of this forum for a complete step by step instruction on how to properly adjust your clutch - sounds like you are way off in that department.

Headlight

Post by Gum » Sat Oct 30, 2010 8:45 pm

The headlight is in. Now I dont know if the Light Key on top the headlight is in the correct position. Has anyone thought of making a copy of these headlights. They seem expensive, Im thinking it cant be hard to get a copy of the Glass done. I have one that I can supply, then im sure there is another headlight with the same dimensions that the copied glass can fit into. Does anyone know if this has ever been done, for what they sell for if 10 were made im sure it would work out.

Wiring

Post by Gum » Sat Oct 30, 2010 8:54 pm

All done and it works a treat, even got the old horn working. I bought a new one but dont need it. So if you want a new horn, let me know and you can have it a good price. The wiring was very enjoyable to do, did over a week, very satisfying indeed.

Brakes

Post by Gum » Sat Oct 30, 2010 8:58 pm

Master resleved and some morris minor seals, the front brake is all good now. All I need is 2 fuel taps, some petrol and I can kick some life into it. Then fit the seat, rego and im away. Lets hope all that by the end of the week.
Thanks Gum

Hey Gum,
You mentioned in another thread that you had a gap between the seat and the tank and that you had some adjustment moving the tank forward and backward.
Check to make sure that when you turn the steering lock to lock that you have clearance and that the forks don't hit the tank. You will probably have to move the tank to it's rearmost position to prevent this. Will probably take up some of the gap too.

yes I think your quite right there, Im sure I would have picked that up when I finally get some fuel taps and I can bolt the seat down.

Thanks Gum
