This update summarises the work that was done today.
Another small step closer to being operational!
Installed a new skid onto the LHS rail. The old
one was #.
The bolt is from the idler pulley, a bit beyond its use by date. The black bar is the old belt lever, also well beyond its use-by date.
The smaller hole is another lever I had. A little healthier. A new bolt and she will go back together.
Top is the strap, after a good clean and a bash with the hammer to straighten it out. Middle is the spring.
The top Pull rod is the original, worn about half
way through. Below is a better pull rod, just a small bit of wear.
Have started to cut the frames in readiness to
re-weld and tidy. Note the new tank.
Ian Harris popped in and gave me a hand to pull down the motor. This is the engine that came in M97.
This is, or was the big end. Note nice oval shape with no bearing: this is in the sump.
Unfortunately, the pic of the crank corrupted. But the surface of the crank is knackered, and will need to be repaired.
