....so its time for a project. The pic does make the bike look nicer than it is but for just over three ponies I should be able to recover my money if it turns out to be a lemon. My plan, currently, is to budget for around a monkey to put it back close to original form rather than a hack. I got it as a total non-runner from a lad who was keen to get it going so he could ride around his farm but lost interest. So far I've; Drained the oil - there actually wasn't any, checked the oil filter gauze - pretty clean, attempted to check the oil spinner - no luck getting into it, fogged the cylinder and filled sump with oil, found the motor turns freely by hand, found there was a missing camshaft oil seal and valve adjustment screw, extensively looked for missing adjustment screw - luckily it was not inside the motor, turned the cam 180 degrees to its correct position, checked the cam timing (thanks DR), adjusted the valve clearances, checked the ignition timing and points gap, soldered the broken wire back on the ignition coil, gapped the plug to spec, plugged all the correct wires back together - have spark! cleaned the carb up a bit, adjusted the bowl float height, rigged a temp fuel line and tank - lol pvc tube and funnel, kicked, kicked, kicked.........................and kicked until I was just about to give up. Yahoo!!!!!!!! We have a runner! It ran for a few minutes which was as long the fuel lasted, most of which was pissing out the bowl seal. Now it is time to start shelling money out hand over fist. 1st is a carb re-build kit followed by a kick start lever and not a cranked out brake lever with all the spline stripped out. Next is a drive chain and better temp fuel tank. If the motor turns out to be viable I'll have a project on my hands. Not an overnight project though. If there is anyone who has misc parts laying around that you'd forgotten you had please get in touch. Thanks.
