Thanx bud - that's about all I can hope for at the moment. Ill health, and the usual lack of funds has all contributed in recent years, but I'm glad to say the Bronchitis has finally passed out of my system [ 4 months !!??] and ALL the expensive parts / outsource jobs have been done apart from the DARC-2 ignition and the welding of the headers. My pal Brian has just finished clearing out his large garden shed that we are going to use to store parts until we need them for assembly.NoRiders said:Nice one beachy...steady progress is steady
Thanx for your efforts - however - they show a picture of the DARC2 ignition box - but in fact what the are selling is the installation kit !! My US friend bought one last year and of course when it arrived - it was NOT the ignition unit. He threatened them with all sorts of mis-representation until they refunded his money.cxman said:beachcomber
look at this and let me know which exact one you need and i will snag it for you if one will work
Just thinking about the NOS tank mount....how about a pair of webbing straps so you can quick undo as you'll be removing to recharge?beachcomber said:People who know how I work [ apart from slowly ! :] will KNOW that the zip ties are holding the NOS bottle in place as POC. I have some very nice exhaust can clamps for the finished jobbie [ exact size ]. Just noticed in the pic - wouldn't want the younger viewers to think that's how we old farts do things.
It's getting pretty crowded under the "tank" now - dual output coils [ x 2 ], fuel pump and filter [ NOS ] fuel pump [ Weber ] DARC2 ignition [ when it finally arrives ! ], NOS bottle ........ then there's all the electrics, solenoids, relays, fuses, etc.
I might have to find a different home for the battery ?
The exhaust clamps only require a half turn with a spanner to allow the bottle to slide out. We did try it earlier on a dry run to swap out bottle.NoRiders said:Just thinking about the NOS tank mount....how about a pair of webbing straps so you can quick undo as you'll be removing to recharge?
I can't believe it either - my mate is OCD tidying fanatic and has boxes for everything.NoRiders said:I'm glad I'm not the only one to lose new parts!
It's amazing how each part requires 2-3 other parts to be fitted to check clearances etc...talk about the hip bone's connected to the thigh bone which is connected to the knee bone...
