Now to get that engine back together and I finally found a puller to change out the old cam bushings. Now to find a 11/16" reamer!

This is the picture I sent them to put on the seat and the end result was perfect with the black shading and brass rivets.

Leather roll case

Posted 8th June 2013 at 05:40 by 62 Ironhead

Ordered a black leather top case to use on a few road trips from Pirate Upholstery. Custom made to suit my measurements with all brass hardware and Hadas and the team at Pirate Upholstery were awesome to deal with. Check them out at http://www.pirateupholstery.com

Starting to put the engine back together

Posted 6th April 2013 at 09:58 by 62 Ironhead

Not sure if this should be checked or not, however I decided to check the trueness of my cases.

Put some engineers blue on the face and ran it over a thick glass plate (best flat level surface I could find) to check for any high spots.

Didn't find any, just a few holes to repair the threads on with keenserts.
