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!

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.

Project Back to '91! - Page 3 9eb5756e

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.

Project Back to '91! - Page 3 9bb20741

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,

Project Back to '91! - Page 3 17ec2436

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!

Project Back to '91! - Page 3 864f8e02

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

Head

Piston

Finally, the cylinder
