I don't know how many of you folks read this, but I thought I'd add a bit more.
I found the time to do all the hose replacements, (even the fuel pick-up tube was lieing in the bottom of the tank). Brake fluid reservoir was full of thick goo that might ahve been DOT 3 fluid at one time... I got that cleaned out and working again.
since all the coolant lines going to the puke tank were rotten, it had no coolant in it. I changed the lines, added coolant and it held!
It started up, runs fine, I haven't confirmed that the oil injection pump is still working, so first tank of gas was pre-mixed at 40:1 (so lots of smoke.)
The fuel hose routing seemed to be goofy right from the factory, it comes out of the tank, rises up to the fuel shut-off, then goes back down to the filter, then to the fuel pump. there is a large air lock that appears in the fuel shut-off portion, but it still draws fuel through and up this portion - without displaceing the air "bubble" and allows it to run, Any idea if this is normal?
I still need a seat, tank cover, fuel cap/gauge, low windshield, and some wax for the cowl - and maybe a new decal kit.
Does anybody know what stops the thumb throttle assy from spinning on the handlebars?
Oh, anyone have a seat cover/foam and seat base board? colour not critical.
