Not really updated this for a while, not done much tbh with the house move and stuff, so since Nomates broke the door, and I knew it needed doing, so here we go!



Welded on new bottom skin, with thin skim of filler!
Love having the welder set up properly!

Actually spent some time on the car today, a few little jobs,
First, change the rocker covers to nice shiny scat ones I bought at dubfreeze, and set the valve clearances while I was at it.



Then, while the back wheels were off, loc-tite some studs into the drums, because getting the gas burners on and off are a pig with bolts.



Finally, fit my cb performance deep sump, I now have about 4.5 litres of oil capacity, which will help a lot with cooling, however, the trade off is a sump ground clearance of about 85mm!



Maybe a few more little jobs soon, but it's finding the time.

Fitted the studs to the front discs yesterday,



And I've been having issues with the car not holding its charge, so I checked the batteries last night, and they were both as dry as a nuns chuff, so a trip to motor spares for some more acid is on the cards this morning!

It's proper broken!

Here's the first clue!



Exhaust valve spring on no. 1 sticking up a bit!

Head



Piston



Finally, the cylinder



And it still got me home!
