Default 305 Chop

Some might remember my 305 build, I tried to out it as an unfinished project....FAIL. So it sat dissambled on the racking in the workshop, I finally decided to dig it all out and build it properly.

In the booth

Right
Engine casings painted,
Top end rebuilt with new valves and cam,
Engine in,
Pipes painted, baffled, and wrapped,
Petrol tap moved to the back of the tank,
Tank rubber mounts sorted
Dashboard fabricated.

Still so much to do & I have just noticed that the plastic oil pump drive sprocket is fucked. That might account for the bent valve and knackered cam, its a good job I have completely rebuilt the top end!

first a mock up of what see will look like



This how far I have got, getting the tank back tomorrow as the tap position had to be changed, unwrapped the pipes and painted them but now I think I prefer them wrapped. Will mostly be making the seat cover tonight....If the boss lady will trust me with her sowing machine... Also no sure about the flat silver finish paint on the engine casings

I have a slight problem as the bracket that I put on to hold the rear muddie is hardened spring steel (made from an old caravan stabiliser). It was welded to the frame before I drilled the mounting holes in it, I cannot seem to drill holes in it now and I know I should have done it on the pillar drill before it was welded on. Any suggestions?
