so ..some good things achieved this last week ...(not including installing a vvt type engine replacement to a non vvt type application in the tin box ...success ...woohoo )
injector rework

although colourful when finished , wont be seen by the passer by ,
83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190845

and now installed , some tidy up work to come
83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190846

many hours of work involved in repairing bloomin holes in the tank and dings , missing bits repaired and some decent panel work , the tank is back from the painters , finished with 2k type paint (to resist fuel damage ) , the painters have done some excellent work ...and now to fit the mechanics and electrics  and get this baby running

Charlie, how have you set up the ignition key? It does not look like the normal K job. So the lights are on, but no one is home!

yes stan that's often the way with my projects ...lol

the switch is a cheapy ...(finances mate ...or lack there of )  so the switch actually activates a double pole relay hidden down in the electrics box  current to activate ...about 60 - 100 milliamps  (0.060 - 0.1  amps ) the relay does the hard work with 20 amp contacts all nice and close to the power supply from the battery ....the parkers are also a lower current thingy and wired accordingly ,  all following the bmw wiring scheme should someone investigate further
so as you guessed, no "one does all" key for this bit unfortunately ...sigh !

No problems Charlie....good to see a more reliable replacement being used. I know of a bloke in Sydney who was kicked out of a bike restorer's club because he replaced some bolts with stainless ones rather than the rust prone ones. That was a Triumph based club.

Kind of like canbus, circa 2000 BC. That's how I do it - go easy on that old wiring!

Looking fantastic Charlie - but surprised you didn’t paint the battery silver though - that flash of yellow on the left side doesn’t fit the colour scheme. I guess you don’t know what it’ll really look like until it all comes together. Of course, if you like the yellow battery...i’ll wind my neck in and shut up! 

I suspect I know what colour the shock spring will be soon.

Keep up the good work.

battery colour will be attended to ....but it is twb's loaner for the moment (I hear say he's about to visit us again come October )

got oils and coolant today , just to replace a sight glass , fix a busted relay ,replace some film circuit board in the instruments , and work out a couple of wiring errors .

manually working the ignition relay has neutral light on , operation of indicators , start button works , battery light comes on , main headlamp operates

resolved an  issue with left turn indication (in the switch gear ) and reversed the front indicators as left was indicating right etc ....bloomin unwound the headlight  height adjuster  so the spring fell into the head lamp housing ...bugga ...but sorted

still to do the muffler mounting issues , and replace the sight glass in the sump ..on my desk to do
then attempt to mount up all the lower fairings ..make brackets where necessary

and fit and bleed all brake lines  and mount rear reservoir

lots to do

I found red LEDs were too bright, especially at night and in the rain (a frequent occurence here...). I fitted red bulbs insted:-

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Red-T10-501-12V-W5W-Wedge-Car-Side-Light-Bulb-Dashboard-Dash-Cluster-Capless-x10/143351699680?hash=item21606d58e0:g:FdcAAOSwstZdTh0t

I did leave LEDs in the fuel level lights, but I modified the circuit board to take a dimmer switch which reduced the brightness to around 25% at night. Still enough to catch your eye, but nowhere near enough to blind you.

just some updates

the list is getting smaller by the day for things that need completion before a ride can be anticipated

but a start event is not far off at all

new fuse holders installed for additional switches etc

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190922

brake pads installed all the way around

oil dropped from sump after replacing the sight glass  and realizing ...filling the oil filter might not be a bad idea ...on the first start attempt after 3+years of sitting idle

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190925


electric functions tested ....still to do , oil pressure switch - temp switch wiring connections - terminations

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190923

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190924





83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190926

throttle cable adjuster to find and install

fluid reservoir for rear brake , install

link to steering head front brakes from master cylinder to install ...then bleed the lot

fluid indicator to reservoir tank pipe clips to get

and so forth

but looking far closer to a ride event ...soon

Looking good Charlie. One question ...I notice the new wooden side stand attached to the muffler (wood obviously to save weight and go faster)..does it swing up automatically when you pull the clutch in? and being in Australia has it been treated for termites?... Very Happy

Looking at the pics in #465, just a small thing, but that full length front mudguard starts to look so right for the bike. It seems for years we've had cool-but-useless cut down shortie things, and an aftermarket full 'fender extenders' just to make them work. But, that full length thing does look so good. Glad it survived the fashion hacksaw. Maybe rear frame loops will be next (I actually saw one for sale on Ebay recently)

My mate spent years restoring a Meriden Triumph, rode it once and now it's parked in his living room where it looks fantastic (he's single). Is this likely for yours?

Interesting involuntary muscle response on my part as I was watching the video - as soon as the motor caught and settled into the familiar K idle I smiled  Very Happy  Happens every time!  Very satisfying after the bike has been down for so long and has had major work done.  Good on ya' Charlie!

Beaut old shorts you're wearing in the start up video, Charlie! Must be warm enough up in Glen even tho' Winter-ish still. 

It's fantabulous to hear the mighty whitey purr as she does. 

No worries on the yellow Motobatt, you've kept it alive so keep it and use it as you see fit. When I return I'll get another from that mob near my storage shed in Beenleigh. They're a good'un, Motobatt, lasting all these years now with only random year and two year intervals of charge and use.

Cheers.

cheers Dazza ...that's good news ...erm in a way

some updates going on

started the under tank insulation fiberglass install ...glueing it down ...and some aluminium to cover it ...hopefully later this week ..which will complete that bit .

frame and tank rubbers installed for side panels and tank to frame .

reworked the ignition switch wiring to shorten the cabling

and more work to rs fairing side pockets ...nearly complete on the left hand side , right hand side has a profile cutout of the backing plate  almost ready to go

just some rubber stuff to seal around the hinges ...and possibly to install some magnetic latches inside the cavity  to hold the lid closed under riding conditions

I must try the wee compartment trick Charlie. I've thought about it and thought about it and it would be extremely useful here when heading to Dublin ferry port or Dublin Airport because I have to pass through two toll gates.

Dai we used to have toll booths, and I used to have to go through them frequently for work. I ended up putting a strip of Velcro on my dash panel. I then got a 35mm film canister ( the strip containers for diabetes glucose test machine appear identical) and wrapped a strip of the hook Velcro around it and put $1.00 and $2.00 coins in it. When I went through the tolls I just past them the cannister which they opened and took out the toll and put the change back in. A couple of the operators took a couple of seconds for it to dawn on them that the cannister contained the toll. I always got the correct change. Toll booth are long gone and so has the Velcro on the dash. However I'm thinking of reinstating it for swap meets and other situations requiring payment.
Regards Martin.

tank insulation install

took 2x under tank components to cover it properly , modified of corse , and then some bling with some alloy to smooth it all out somewhat

made a blue and installed too much around the tank seal to frame area ...so had to cut some out 

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190932

83-84 engine cleanup  - Page 10 20190933

Ballsache of a job, isn't it Charlie? I did the underside of LFB's new Arctic Blue tank and that took two sheets of self-adhesive insulation.

I am loving this thread...

I see the engine is the very early one with the engineering screws on, mine is 4883 and its an amazing engine. Mt RT is 3284 and doesn't have the engineering screws and is nowhere as lively by comparison.

The RS storage compartments are really useful, something I have on the RT and LTs and an essential in my book. Will look at this more.

Looking forward to seeing videos of some rides. PM me your address for Christmas puddings....

Its an early 80s wood burner. Kind of basic technology back then.....
