evening , hope everyone is good.
I think (hope) spring is here. guess there’s no getting around the winds, getting a little warmer, we like that. fairly dry here but still a bit of snow on Pikes Peak and foot hills. sure great seeing them every day.
here is a photo of one of the sidecar springs that probably got bent at the same time the front main mount was crushed. hope (need) to be getting on the chassis and body pretty quick.
finished up the magneto timing to both cylinders, there within .020 of each other firing at 7/16″ BTC. checked the gear timing one last time. got the cam case sealed up.
I had already gone thru the oiler (its not a pump but is driven off the worm threads you see above).it try’s to drip meter oil into the cases. anyway got it mounted. got the compression release installed. adjusted the valves for now but need to ask about the .006 and .003 cause that sure seems tight on a cold valve set to me. aligned and screwed down the push rod covers. (very time consuming, these fine threads).
onto installing the heads.
got her heart bolted back in the frame. carb had already been gone thru, installing the later model intake and carb, support bracket and top motor mount.
bolted on the horn. and routed cables.
so here we are as of tonight. hoping for more with this weeks evenings.
reminder.. if your in the area this Moms day, swing by and take the nickel tour. 10:30-3 . bring your Mom.
till next Sunday. LAUGH LOTS. it helps.
