Being a UK car it has Lucas mechanical fuel injection, the US got a depowered car with twin SU carbs.
Car looks standard and is in nice condition, lots of rebuilding of bodywork, mechanicals and interior, and better braking to go with the 2.7ltr 175bhp engine.
I’m back from a 6 week break and Scruffy fired right up.
tank looks the same as when i left it, no bubbling of the paint so the quiksteel seems to have worked
initial fuel leak cured itself after a ride, stuck float i’m guessing
so..... must be time to tear the motor down and fit 600cc pistons !
shall also repaint the engine, forks etc , fit better shocks and maybe cartridge emulators
look out for updates !
