    Sorted the fuel system out. Ended up using a swirl pot after trying to just use the injection pump just being gravity fed. Tank looks better for a coat of satin black. Also got all the injection wiring tucked away in the engine bay.

    Hi, I am going to both Hertfordshire and Cornwall in the next 3 weeks, if "OLDWHEELS" wants to sort out with "MATT 74" I can collect and pay for the gearbox and "OLDWHEELS" can pay me and everyone is happy, not 100% sure on the dates, but I am collecting an engine from Hertfordshire and will be dropping off some parts I have sold to a guy who runs a body shop in Cornwall. So I could pick up a gearbox and drop it off, call it a pint and I am happy. Let me know what you want to do. Cheers Al.

    It’s either a 957cc or 1100cc engine. It’s not xflow but a Valencia. 957 can be either a low compression or high compression.

    You could always do this to the crossmember if it will gain the extra clearence you need, save chopping the tunnel.

    You could always come and give me help in the garage, that'll keep you warm. You've got the choice of rubbing the Anglebox down, re- shelling a scooter or get an RS turbo breathing again!

    And again something done , on the tunnel this time , the clutch lever didn`t have enough clearance it did almost the tunnel. So i did remove the ugly piece of metal what did weld in years and year ago that was also a modivication at that time. And now it looks much better and also the rubber cover was to tide so did grind it a bit on the in-side and out-side , so there is just enough clearance. And flywheel wasn`t straight anymore , so of to the machineshop , and a new clutch goes in.
