    Took some items off so I could get a good clean with a power washer. Still a lot of rust on stuff though that will never come off. I have a better view of the wiring harness now that the oil/dirt is gone.

    I've spent nearly $170 on parts so far.

    I really didn't want to paint anything as it would stand way out right next to everything else dirty and rusty but a couple of heavily rusted areas I needed to "rattle can" them. The original filters are non-existent so I used 2 layers of the uni foam.....one oiled and one not.....just like my HT-1.

    So things are getting greased up and serviced and cleaned up. Kick start lever was cleaned and greased with new rubber installed..

    The biggest modification this bike will see is the cat tail light.

    Working on the carb slowly while waiting for the new throttle cable.

    Funny how gunked up this carb was it still managed to run fairly well......although it idled erratically.

    Don't add extra oil to the gas if you'er running an oil pump, it will run lean.

    Wow.......I lost an entire page in this thread. Oh well

    Cleaned the carb and installed new lines, cables and replaced the old dug out fasteners with new ones.

    Lost 2 pages of the Guzzi thread a few weeks ago. Now it's gone completely.

    I've been trying to look up parts from my usual joints (Chaparral & Bikebandit) but both places have no reference of the model for years 71 & 72. All the little rubber pieces disintegrated when I disassembled the petcock. The only thing that kinda looks similar is the valve from the TS50.......same years.

    could you just replace it with a more common one?

    or overkill it with a pingel?

    Contact Sudco They may be able to help you. They might be able to cross reference an equivalent kit, or adapt another petcock.
    I always find a soap box useful to get on my high horse.
