Along with a ton of cleaning (still in progress), today I spun a 1/8 NPT to 1/8 tube fitting down into a 5/16 - 18 to fit a test port on the front of the engine.
Doesn't have the eliminator cap (although it could be added). For that matter, it is missing a lot of things. Long-term project, and not looking to fully restore. Just get it safe, dependable, and looking/riding good.Previous "electrician" was probably doing the hunt and twist wiring method instead of a wiring schematic. I saw this a lot when the British MC industry tanked and bikes ended up with someone who didn't understand Lucas electrics. Will it run/start without a battery?
