last bit before valve lapping ….and waiting for parts to be ordered

thought to clean up at least some of the sand casting marks in the combustion chamber ...by no means perfect but far less pointy bits of aluminium to gather carbon and pre ignite

valves lapped
just to find the valve spring compressor and fit the parts back together

the valve stems seals are still holding the valves in place , so I guess they might last a bit longer ?

Charlie I have a valve spring compressor that goes on over the spring and them you screw it down. It is meant to be used with an air fitting that screws into the spark plug hole. Air is supposed to hold the valve up while you screw the compressor down. I also have and older one if I can find it similar to the one in the picture.  I am in the process of sorting and rearranging my garage so I do know where it isn't. Let me know and I can bring them to the Lowood swap meet.
Regards Martin.

thought to start on the wiring loom
some interesting challenges ahead I guess

as you would expect from something near ancient ...giggles …
the loom itself looks ok , some insulation wrapping needing attention




some interesting mods



and some typical corrosion points needing attention









lets see what develops

With so many little dremel knockoffs on the market. A trip to Bunnings or a reject shop can yield plenty of little match stick sizes grinders. I know they are meant for the replica dremels but a lot of the little carbide impregnated bits would be just useful between thumb and forefinger to clean up some of those little sockets joints.

good idea keith

I have a few various pc board  drills here also  which will help with the small internal type fitting sockets

after a couple of days ..the deoxit has worked quite well  so far



a clean up with flux remover and electronic cleaning solvent  and toothbrush or similar may restore - clean the surface without using some abrasive materials

followed by the deoxit when mating up , later on in the build

bit of a clean up on a modified exhaust , care of Al Pennykid

its been a bit bumped about this one , with years of crud bonded to the underside and hard to get at exposed areas

before





during



and near the end






still some deep scars of corroded stainless exist ...but cutting them back is hard work indeed … may get inspired to dig deeper yet … but don't want to go any thinner on the metal just in this spot , just under and behind the foot peg plate , fortunately the 84 footpeg plate doesn't have the additional guard section just there


may even cut the last two silencer cover plate nut retainers off as well   before a bit more polishing

bit more playing with the motor today
finally pulled the sump and output shaft

unfortunately the sump is buggered , the face of the pump assembly is had it ...there are deep scores around the large gear (that was bound into the housing )  and it has scored the bridge between the ventricles of the two gears -pump








there s a bit of a clue to how this may have happened whilst looking at the pump end of a very worn output shaft






of corse the old antibacklash spring is bound into the rivet heads and cut-worn  a new grove in the spring at the retaining point

the rubber buffers in the buffer housing have shrunk markedly allowing lots of movement (expected )  ...and about 2mm movement in the fixing rivets










fortunately smithy has loaned me an output shaft fit for purpose , with a replaced and newer version antibacklash spring , no noticeable movement in the rivets ...but the buffer rubbers are a close fit rather than a tight fit …

may have to machine a grove into the later version sump I have here (with good pump faces ) to allow the old style bearing on the output shaft

so on we go ...

gutted ...all that nice white paintwork for the red frame project ...is going brownish ....

likely the poxy clear coat that i used over it ....i should have known better than to use the septone version …

i have found a new version of clear coat from a different supplier …


compare the helmet and the fender ...were the same colour once upon a time not long ago





 ...the difference is the different clear coat ...

has affected the main fairing . rear cowl and everything else i did back then ....

i guess rub it all back to base colour and start again ........

will wait a few weeks till the temperature has settled into the 20s overnight instead of 4 and 5 c

I've no idea what the grill is on the floor Charlie, but it gave me an idea (and I bet you've already got there). I replaced the mesh on the radiator guard with stainless steel. No more rusty bits.

Aw, that's a crying shame Charlie after the huge amount of effort you put into the paint job. Still, the silver lining is, with all that extra rubbing down, the end product will be even more fabulous than it was before. I hope you didn't use that pesky clear coat on any other bits that may not have been exposed to that gentle Queensland sunshine yet.

getting closer to wiring a loom together
arrived yesterday  some loom tape

2 x types.  the normal tight weave tape  and another what is called a "fleece tape"






just to wait on some suitable 4mm cables of different colours for some extra wiring options  ie repurposing the ignition switch to operate a relay for ignition things

thought to pull out the swing arm for the red frame project , the clear coat darkening over time , now removed


bit of a clean up before attempting similar to Gerty , call it research





also did the starter motor



I guess wax maybe the way to keep it clean ???

cool thanks Dai

all similar details to be applied in my loom

but the key switch will switch a relay back in the electrics box , so some of the wiring will be duplicated in some areas , but that's not an issue I can see causing any problems ,

but a few  more relays to go in there , to make room, the bmu will go , etc

some extra control cables from dash back there as well (aux lights , fan control , voltage indicator , usb output  and more )

a few cables to be replaced with same - similar colour with a bigger cross section ...etc

different connectors to tank and a few other locations …

the list goes on mate

The company actually mounts the sidecar electrics box in the seat well - the body design makes it easy to get at and it puts it in a weatherproof area. I use these (or similar) as the fuseboxes, simply because its an immediate failure indicator:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-Way-Blade-Fuse-Box-with-LED-Indicator-Fuse-Block-for-Car-Boat-Marine-H8K2/323477011607?hash=item4b50bb7c97:g:YEkAAOSw1ZBbrivM

I put another 5mm setscrew in one corner to use as the common earth point. Also, the electronics box I use has a transparent lid so you can see the fuses. If you don't want to put a box in the sidecar, there's more than enough room to put relays and fusebox on a plate in the sandwich box (seat hump! Very Happy ).

Also, I see that the forum software is having problems displaying the headlight high beam wire. On my original diagram I use a very light grey (slate) as a stand-in for white: it should be attached to pin 87a on the headlight relay.

got some "Ultrabond " for repairs on the fuel tanks , and a portagas type burner

initial results were very poor , as I couldn't get enough heat into the metal on the tank ,,,, it just spread the heat out away from the area
so armed with some MAPP type gas rather than butane , and lots of patience  it finally got to heat ,,,just

just enough for a good tinning process and a good flow of material to cover the small and large holes apparent

still to do a pressure type test,  but looking like it should work out ok











nearly cant see that its been done from top side

Charlie... I don't want to scare you BUT... I find with that stuff (also call Durafix) you need to get the area at least 50% hotter than flow rate and you need to apply around 50% more than you thought you'd need. Really, really double-double-double check it; if you can see the slightest hint of an edge, try levering it off because there's a large chance it will depart when you least want it to. And let me ask a stupid question: you did clean the weld area with a stainless steel brush? If you used an ordinary wire brush then there's a large chance you may have contaminated the weld because the ordinary brush will leave microscopic iron filings behind. The stainless one doesn't.

Yes, I've had what appeared to be a perfectly good weld fail on me because I didn't follow the instructions exactly... Fortunately it wasn't somewhere critical.

For anyone that's interested, here's Durafix' website: http://durafix.com/

dai   the tinning process went right to the edge ,,, later the pool overlapped the tinned section
I have jiggled it pulled at it , filed it and sanded it with an orbital sander ,,and it doesn't budge at all ...pretty hard stuff to work actually

at the moment I have the tank sorta sideways so that some vinegar is sitting where the four holes (2 x above the tank weld , more pin pricks  and 2x larger ones on the under side )   waiting to see if there are any leaks .

ill get a fuel sender seal in there and attach the sender  and double up the send and receive fuel spigots  and shunt the  breather tube , maybe make a sealing lid filler hole for the so that I can get a bit of pressure in there for a test ,,, should be able to use the breather tube as a inlet ?

might push a slight ding in the top right hand side out eh ?


thanks for the heads up mate ...appreciate it !!

You're welcome. I'd rather set off a panic now than have you find a hole miles out in the bush.

the bars used to measure 22.25 mm now about 22.05 mm ...should fit ? or close to …

the throttle tube over the bars is smooth at least and doesnt catch

some more work today , attempting to clean off the black paint on those levers
its pretty hard stuff with no chemicals able to shift  the black stuff off (that I have found yet )
so resorted to abrasive methods as usual

looks ok

Charlie, I'm pretty sure those levers are powder coated.  If you can't find a perch locally, I have a couple in my spares pile.  You are welcome to one of them for the(not insubstantial) postage to Oz.
