Motor In

This rebuild seems to be getting slower! Its either too cold t be in the garage or the next “bits” have not arrived.

The engine and gearbox are in. I wrapped the frame loops in pipe insulation so I didn’t wreck the finish. Its quite tight with the gearbox bolted on as well.

As said before, the Rear Ohlins needs sorting.

In an attempt to clean things up and maybe get a bit more air into the carbs for the “Y” piece, I have stripped out all the airbox gubbins and the various hoses and plastic bits associated with the engine breather. That will now vent to the atmosphere via a hose out the airbox.
The vacuum pipes for the carbs have also been stripped out. I don’t need them as the PAIR valves have gone and they are only a potential leak.
