The best is yet to come, Dave.

OK!
I plan to finish the blasting of the frame and the engine, by removing all the peripheries.
So, a small journey of sandbags, combining business with pleasure.

Looks great, some things I would check, water pump bearing and rear transmission mount, the mount usually has collapsed.

I changed the mount the first week.
The water pump bearing, the engine has been running almost every day for four months, no problem.

Thanks guys, glad you like it.

I go up the peripheries, the pipes etc ...
Repair of the pump, the blue plastic membrane worked so far.
To be continued, carburetor.
