..hasn't cruised anywhere yet! Rolling Eyes ..just rolled in & out of the garage as i slowly get bits done. Got a ( freezin Rolling Eyes ) weekend on it the next 2 days, so hope to crack it if i can sort all the issues :| ..just gotta 'hope' everything still works in there ( still goes round & round/up & down on the starter Twisted Evil )
I've never taken my time so much on ANY vehicle i've had before Rolling Eyes - guess its knowing its a keeper.. :| ❤

..engine runs fine, only a slight noise i am disquietened by; otherwise no leaks or mishaps yet. Gauges are in & will be wired for Thurs. I wasn't gonna run any, but i 'm not at ease running this lump with no oil gauges, & with an FK8 i thought i might as well add a tach to keep an eye on the powerband...(like i know what i'm talking about!
