I was over helping to get this thing going the other day ! We finally managed to break the drive-pulleys free . They were froze up pretty good . But now apart and getting the clutch stuff working. My Uncle has been doing a lot of little things on this in his spare time ( Retired) He has the engine ready to go ! Hot spark now , turns out he put a new condenser in it and got a bad one. He was Pi$$ed . I wanted to show pictures of the progress though.
This is where it is at this point.
And if you go back to the first post and look at the hood - This is what it looks like now \/
He does some pretty damn good body work.
We are still looking for the rims - and the tires will be the last thing done I guess - it is his and he is doing it his way.
He says he knows it will run so there is no need to try it out . LOL - I am just watching him and helping when I can . He has fabricated a pulley cover for this one too . And learned from making mine , so his is better . But he also fabricated an air-vane governer for my machine using his as a template. I just have to bolt it on and hook it up .
This is what he does ... he said he is not working at all - just having fun .
He also has the new choke cable and is getting the mounts for that ready . A new kill switch . I mean- he is doing it all and making the parts as he goes .
There are just not many people around who do it all this 'Old School'
I learn all I can from him and he is glad to show me what he can .
