manifold fixed

Post by sebking »

Gaskets now on correctly.

Also to note! the pin on the water pump that faces with the pulley was slightly over size so when I tightened up the fan it pushed back through and jammed the pulley! - Watch out for this on third party pumps...

Need a new lead for no8 as in my excitement managed to get it caught up in the fan belt :(

Once that is sorted I'll get it all timed up, check that it moves up and down the drive way (make a film) and then swap in the nice new carbs.

Well done so far. Those carbs do add a bit of bling :D

Seat belts

Post by Kippa »

Hi Seb,

Did you install inertia seat belts, if so what fixings did you use?

Cheers,
