Getting back to this bitch again. Want it done by Barber.

Got the leaking oil pan replaced this weekend and fired it back up.
The throttle I had on it (1/4 turn race throttle thingy) was keeping the slide open a bit much so after pulling it off it idles like a champ and revs pretty well as well.

I remember how much I hate new header wrap on a new build. The thing smokes like CRAZY from the exhaust wrap. Doesn't help it's sat in the metal dust and oil in the metal shop for the last 5 years lol.

It's also smoking a bit when revved up, I assume new rings not bedded in yet but we'll see.

Tank has a pinhole after putting muriatic in it, so it's going to need a liner. Which one is favored these days? Caswell?

Stay away from Kreem! The crap is acetone soluble, even after cure. I was able to remove all of a poor Kreem job from my GL1000 tank with acetone.

I also like Caswell.  I've never tried Kreem, but I have done Red-Kote with mixed results.  I've seen Red-Kote not fully break down but dye fuel red for years.  And that was after waiting more the a week for cure before putting fuel in the tank.
