long time, no updates...until now.

Nearly there.... fired her up today, left cylinder has fuel/spark, but not firing... I'm pretty sure either a jet is clogged, or the slide may not be moving well. I'll dig in over the next several days as time is in short supply these days.


pics in no particular order:

That looks nice. Wifey likes the orange wheels. I like the platinum grey paint.

Hey Xander,
Been lurking or elsewhere? Haven't seen you post in a while.

Xander - I made the collector from a set of old rusty CB pipes I had. I just cut the curved sections to where they exit to the stock mufflers and made them into a "Y" nasty rusty CB pipes can be had for +/- $20.


You'll also need to cut the CL muffler off to make it work.

Thanks, but I have a unfair advantage, I've been a mechanic/welder, for over 35yrs. Technical training is'nt enough, you need to think outside the box too. Thats where I have to see what other are doing cause I'm mostly a "copy cat" I need a idea or plan to copy.Being able to come up with fresh ideas and an eye for colors etc. is also a skill, and you have it. Keep after it and the techinical skill will follow. actualy you have lots already!
