Not much to report here either.  Still planning on squeaking the bike through its safety exam - all the work I'm doing on the bike at the moment therefore is on a kinda wing-and-a-prayer basis.  Which isn't a great plan of attack as it turns out.  Had to borrow a bunch of parts off Rhonda (starter relay, carb floats and gaskets, er, tank) but it's one step forward and two steps back.  So, Plan B.

Pulled the carbs again and will be ordering a set of new o-rings and gaskets.  The kit includes some new float needles - the ones I have a the moment look ok but the little spring pin is a bit stuck on some of them (is there any way to free that up?  I'd like to keep the originals if possible).  Installed an inline fuel filter and have a front brake caliper rebuild kit arriving soon too.

Still borrowing Rhonda's tank, but promised her she'll get it back asap.

Can you draw us a diagram of how you have the headlight and signals hooked up to the Ultima block? For instance, your front left turn signal should have two wires. One is ground and the other goes to the block. Which port is that turn signals plugged into?

Nothing super exciting to report. I pulled the carbs completely apart for the 100th time and went through them with a super fine tooth comb. Threw the bodies in the ultrasonic cleaner, along with the brass. Replaced all 4 o-rings in each carb. I noticed that the PO had placed the plastic spacers on the needles above the circlip, rather than below (toward the slide body). So I reassembled those correctly. Set float heights to 14.6mm and set the mixture screws to the stock setting 3.5 turns out.

Nothing quite like setting your bike alight to relieve tension!

I was getting pretty frustrated pounding on it w the 2 lb ball peen.

Then YES I lit it up and it popped free w just 4 good taps.

I laughed and felt much better.

I wanna know about that muffler, is that something you made? it's amazing and pretty much fits the design and style of what I want for my bike
I made it.  I'm pretty sure I made a post with the baffle and machined end cap earlier in the thread.  The muffler is two pieces of pipe, one pre-bent, bought from Columbia River (mandrel-bends.com).

Couple of problems.  First is the clutch.  After our dyno runs the clutch did not want to work. The plates were all stuck together. Disassembled.  The wear limit is 2.3mm and we are at 2.8.  There is suppose to be 300 ml of oil in the right side case but it has a leak and we usually run less than that. 

Also the clutch plates we have are composite not metal like Hughs Bultaco sent us.  The Metal ones are 2 lbs heavier.  So we probably won’t use them. 

Should we just vent the case and go to a dry clutch? Take a look at this picture of the other Bultaco drag bike.
