I have yet to finish what I was doing as christmas and stuff has slowed me down quite a bit but I do have st S/G on aswell as the new reg and all the wiring is finished aswell as a new chrome air cleaner and filter also a new flamethrower 40,000 volt Chrome coil. Got a new muffler on the way should be here maybe tomorrow or the next day and also got some clutch stuff on the way. I am going to polarize the S/G whether or not it should be just as a precaution. I will do it maybe tomorrow or the next day depending on what I have to do. Ive got to go and get a new S/G belt as the original needs replacing it would work but may aswell change it. I also removed the seat as Im going to sand it down and prime it to prevent further rust I have replaced it with a padded black pan seat for now. I also added a Sun Pro Voltmeter to show me whther or not my battery is getting charge. This model wasnt equipped with a battery or charge meter of any kind that I know of so I thought it needed one (it helps to know what stuff is doing) The clutch stuff I ordered should make it good as new. I got a new drive disc, throw out bearing, load Spring, teaser spring, and pedal release spring. After 40 years I thought it should be rebuilt as if I do restore it or whatever Id be buying it anyway probobly aswell as replacing the fasteners (which Ill also be doing) The only things I really have left after I finish that is the fluid changes and Ill be done with her for a while anyway Lol. Im also thinking of putting a set of lights on it I have some that will work temporarily untill I get a set of the real ones. Once I get all my improvements finished up Ill snap a few more pics and show youall what Ive came out with.
P.S. The chrome looks really good and best of all it kept that stock apperance for the most part just slicked her up a bit. Lol Thanks Josh
