PostSubject: bit of progress at last   Sat Apr 23, 2011 7:01 pm

Got stuck into the rigid again this weekend. I have been waiting on my trans nut to be able to lock up the primary etc.









got a sweet little cover to keep the cert guy happy



probably the cheapest thing from shed 5 to. fuel line is only $9 and looks sweet


95% of the wiring is done. ran most of it through the frame but there will be a couple running in view.
Got some fittings from engineering supplies this morning and got my oil lines sussed so tommorow all going well i'll wire up the coil and shit and get it fired. fingers crossed. i better bleed my front brake up cause i know if the bitch starts im gonna skid up my back lawn.........

yeah im happy as with the pipes. im running the direct solenoid start on the starter motor so its a bit of a hand scrunch to push it throught the pipes which should make it interesting when its hot.
I got it all turning over an shit today but no spark. it turns out my ignition module is fuked so im gonna look at some options. Either do the good ol points conversion or do a crane setup thats adjustable and shit then i can do away with the module. It a ugly black box that i didnt want to try and hide anyway.

true i may just do that cheer woody. before i chop mine in half with my axe i probably should look if i've wired the fuka up right. Do you know much bout them?. Mine has the purple wire for the voes crap which i ignored and the usual plug to the cam sensor plate. then theres a white and a blue. White to positive and blue to neg sound right?
