all the unneeded brackets removed



made up a pair of very rough engine mounts, engine is a smidge tall, breather box in the rocker cover hits



fuck all clearance



the cover has a steel plate inside, reckon there is modification room



plenty clearance now

output shaft is also miles away from the right place, or alternatively the swingarm pivot is too low..... I see more surgery coming

this is getting thrown back together and put back in hibernation, before it grows arms and legs, its not the simple engine swap I thought

the saga continues... picked up an organ donor , hopefully this'll make things a bit easier , a ZED motor would have been better, obviously, but i don't have one of them, so lets try this

started scrubbing the motor, still in the back of the van, think i prob transferred most of the detritus onto myself and the van, but i can now work with it without getting too filthy

unsurprisingly, under the sprocket cover was especially grubby

as far as I know it has an oil leak, I'm hoping not from the drain tubes, so I'll do a dry build , have it running like this before making pretty

stripped the carbs down and gave them a bath in the ultrasonic cleaner, bit of work needed still, but they look like they will be ok

I have no luck with carbs, air screw was jammed solid all the way forwards , tried utrasonic, acf50, bit of heat... nope.... the fact the screwdriver slot had seen better days didn't help . Sooo , i drills a little hole, pops in an easy out ,against my better judgement, long story short, the ally around the screw split and the inside of the body burst .... bugger... at worst i have a mock up set of carbs, not rushing into spending loads on a new set straight away. Found a set on ebay for cheap, spares or repair, but they are mk1, i'd rather have both sets the same , not sure if bodies are interchangeable

well, since i broke it.... i better fix it , popped an 8mm hole through , it'll get plugged with an insert mimicking the airscrew socket

i need to find out if the hole I unearthed should be plugged , or open to the air screw
