Last night I got the gaskets on and the primary buttoned up. Clutch cable is shorter but still too long, but I'll still keep it. Clutch is adjusted and I added just enough fluid to have a drip remind me to tighten up the drain plug. I still have to top off the primary fluid, tighten a few things, install a mirror, and fuel. Not a long list, but I can hear rust dust in the tank that I couldn't get out. Magnet? Let the filter deal with it? IDK

Ah yes the tank rust. It could get past the petcock screen on my Golan. My Mikuni flooded several times thanks to that. It didn't matter how many times I flushed it. Only reliable solution I found was to install a decent 30 micron in-line filter.

Most in-line filters I find are for automotive, which are built for fuel pumps pushing fluid through. I don't want my filter to starve my carb, so if you could share your filter type and source, that's be cool.

I bought a billet one with specified fuel flow and filtration. It uses a cleanable stainless filter and fits nicely under the ignition switch.
Since this is finest filter, you know where to look for any collected crud. Mine came from a UK company called Torques. I know Golan
make similar in the US.
