Oil pump installed and primed. Using the factory feed pipes and will use my trusty syringe as a temp oil tank for the run around the block and then sort the proper oil tank when I rebuild it.

I've made sure the throttle slide and oil pump arm are sync'd as per the book. Fiddly, but it's all in place and working (as bench tested) :)



I've made new front upper engine mounts out of 3mm steel, they need a return kink to allow access to the inner exhaust flange bolt....rather than me having to remove the mounts to access the bolt every time.

Gee thanx....what you got then?

Small, but important update:
Today, metal bashing. Andy,my neighbour, has acetylene so we heated and spent longer than I thought trying to figure how to shape the kink I needed to clear the exhaust flange bolt on both sides. I even made a buck but figuring the next bend was laughable tbh.
Got there in the end.



Two kinky upper front mounts in etch ready for a splash of satin black.

Engine mounts, not an exciting area to report on...but, these upper front mounts needed to have a kinky offset to allow access to the exhaust inner flange bolt, without having to remove the mounts everytime.....plus it looked terrible.

So, the 3mm steel was heated n bashed into shape....took a bit longer than we thought as the bends (3 per bracket) had to be thought about..heheh!

Installed and I can access both inner flange bolts easily, fiddly but easily. :)



At least now they look like they've been made purposely.


Regina 520 gold chain arrived today.



I'm assured the bodywork will be painted over the weekend and I'm hopeful of the caliper returning too.



That'll mean I'm close to it's maiden run around the block.

Something has been happening at NoRiders towers...

Bodywork back from second painting...correct 9003 white now and it's certainly white :)

Chain fitted, exhaust sorted...just need 35mm springs. I'll probs wire it for the test ride.....yeah, I sadi test ride.

Front caliper/brakes are bled.

Tank fitted but need to check the petcock seal.

I'm close to the test ride around the block ;)

Czakky & toffee - thank you gents. Sometimes a bit of kinkyness is just the ticket ;)

Might get the firing up and test ride done this weekend.
