I usually but aircraft gasoline too for winter storage. It's expensive, but it doesn't gel

No ethanol in it, we can buy supreme here without so I use that in the last tank of the season with Stabil.

We can't buy anything non ethanol at the pump in Ohio, at least around here. It's frustrating

I Hear you, they are moving that way here too and it's not good. Ethanol is the devil for all your motorized things, even cars don't do well with it, but bikes, sleds, wheelers, weedeaters, mowers all hate it so my jerry can gas is all supreme, which nothing needs but it has no ethanol and so can sit without going bad.

I buy True Fuel for my weed whacker. Its expensive, but its ethanol free and pre mix. worth the price. always starts right up the next spring no problem

Ha, yep, I mixed like a 4 gallon jug when I bought my weedeater before they put ethanol in the gas, it lasted 15 years before I ran out and had to mix another, the oil had stabilizer in it and the weedeater starts every spring. I have changed the sparkplug once in it for the 20 years I have had it, and I just bought a new string head for it this year. I gets used about once a week for an hour and a half and took that long to burn that much gas. Best $49.99 I ever spent for that little bugger.

Got the rear and one of the front calipers rebuilt and new pads in.


And the last one of these I've found for sale on the internet is on its way.

Got some work done this weekend. Brakes flushed out, only to find that the master cylinder sight glass was leaky.


Gonna give this a shot.



Working on de rusting the tank.


Boat plugs help allot in this process. So do quarters and o rings.





First flush with soapy water.


Blew the fuse that is not easy to find, so I wired up an in line spade type fuse.





Found a tank at the salvage yard that has the parts I need also. Woohoo



And, picked up a battery. Every place I checked had them for well over $100. Found a place that had them on sale for $20... Double woohoo.


Had some issues with it not running off idle. Replaced the fuel filter and boom, this happened.



Flushing the tank, finish up the brakes, and hopefully test ride later this week.

Around $20 a gallon. I had two gallons already from the gt250 project though that I filtered and re used
