    Couple pics of the powerhouse,amazing reliability really goes hard for what it is? Filled the sump right up with fuel the other day,going to pull the carbs down and rekit think the front float must be sticking open sometimes Changed the oil and filter let it run on the hoist got up to temp then repeat Shifted leads 1 to 4 round sending compression up through the carbs Worked a treat! Must of had a blocked jet somewhere idles way smoother starts a bit better and for now floats not wide open Still try to sort some carb kits just not as urgently as I first thought

    Managed to find another rhf park light from Australia Also new headlight bracketry and an st grille badge thanks to @sleeektoy Took a fair bit of persuasion to align front bumper and indicator brackets Then reassembled front Looks far better than the stacked up state it was in before
