its been an absolute arse kicker of a weekend. but its running now. engine top end done, mag rebuild, new carb. dont know its secret hand shake yet but it starts pretty easy when i get it right.
ive had the gearbox in and out about a dozen times or more. swaped for spare gearbox that turned out to be worse. mixed and matched parts from 3 gearboxes to get the best box i could at no notice with no spares. still glitchy as hell on kicker but it shifts good - fingers crossed
carb needs tuning still. went for a wassel copy of an amal concentric. seems nice just needs tweeking really now.
then reassembly for to set off on friday for a weekend of riding / camping with a little luck... fingers crossed - i need all the help i can get
