loads of jobs done this weekend.

pumped the beam full of grease to help improve the annoying squeeks, adjusted the new throttle cable i fitted last week and adjusted the hand brake, as 1 side i could spin the wheels when it was jacked up

Took the waterdamaged rear hatch door panel off, sound proofed it and fitted new one i made.




painted and Fitted another steering box, and new drag link, f**cker of a job, had to cut the old one off, as the arm was solid, we then used a press the get the arm off. No more knocking, just a bit of fine tuning needed, old box available if anyone needs one for exchange





Leaky rocker cover, so fitted some shiney scat ones i picked up at volksworld

and final job of the day, 1 spline extra on the LH side to even out the rear, as it was an inch out (higher) that side





if only it was this low Wink , front was jacked up to do the steering box Laughing

cheers dom Cool

Well my external oil cooler is finally on, pics once ive tidied it up a bit, dropped my running temps by about 15 degrees which is cool ( no pun intended )

Also fitted a t piece, so i could fit my pressure switch and oil pressure sender, although my oil pressure gauge read zero permanently , so its either a faulty sender or wiring Rolling Eyes

And finally, thanks to Uber Cool, my new EB forum sticker Cool

Another job done

remounted the oil cooler the opposite side of the chassis rails, and a little higher

next job is engine and gearbox out, gearbox is stuck in 4th, so the forks could be nackered, will be off to Bears for a rebuild i think, shame as the weathers glorious and i cant use it :evil:

need to adjust me stearing box and sort out my oil pressure sender to when i get 5 mins

quick power run before i get the chokes changed in a week or 2, 66bhp@4000rpm, 69bhp@5000rpm

then an oil change, new remote filter and the daddy of jobs with twin carbs, new spark plugs Laughing

idles a lot better after the rolling road, all ready for volksfest sunday
