The starting point:
(Auto-)Decompressor cable fitted. Note to self: Take measurments next time and maybe solder a spare.
Chain and front sprocket fitted.
Fitting the carbs and airfilter hoses was the toughest job and I honestly failed on the right side, so that hose will need re-doing, but the rubber was roughly as stiff as hard plastic.
As I found out, it's a lot easier to install the carb from the right without the header pipes installed, so the headers were next.
And that's what she looks like with her clothes back on:
And there you go dad. Still enough cleaning left to do to keep you entertained over Christmas and the following points are still open:
- needs oil
- right airfilter hose needs to be re-done when it's warmer
- battery-eliminator (condenser instead of the battery needs to be found)
- new engine breather hose as it cracked during install (did I mention it was "a tad" cold?)
