    Thanks Buddy! Main reason i got these is because i got it at a great price and they have to be better than what i had on previously.

    As demanded by some here are some updates. Nothing big, but still updates


    The previous valves ended up not being what i wanted so i ordered what was needed (all 20) and new valve guides (all AE)



    Then i got to cleaning and spraying a few bits and bobs, aswell as changing shocks and shock mountings.














    Next was thinking of replacing my current DV with this one



    One side assembled



    Next was removing and welding shut nipples not needed on the TB and IM






    IM being Sprayed



    The Valves and guides went to the engineer on Monday, and the new pistons went in on Tuesday. Now i just wait for everything then i can start assembling.


    Enjoy and thanks for looking.

    Yep. Dropping it off this afternoon. Can't wait any longer for it and I keep getting the run around from this friend of mine for the parts (which I've already paid him for). He makes arrangements with me and changes his mind. Then he also tells me he doesn't have the time to do it or help, so if he can, he will have to do it in his free time and will take a while.

    So i got my block, pistons, rods, head and crank back. I have connected rods to pistons, installed the cir-clips (what a mission). Will be assembling the bottom end, and checking clearances on Monday.

    Thanks for all the kind words


    Seems my Photobucket account has broken, so had to create a new one. I am just busy sorting everything, making sure nothing is missing. I should start with the bottom end later today.














    That is all for now.
