    Well after yanking my rebuilt motor back out and fixing the machine shops mistake (put cam bearing in backwards) shes back in, looking pretty again. Runs like a new motor, great oil pressure, no smoke after break In and a new clutch installed. On to the next phase

    Due to the close proximity to the fuel line I heat wrapped the exhaust

    John - If I was ever gonna buy a restored classic I'd pay quite a bit extra if it came from you! You must have a bit of OCD in you because your attention to detail is off the charts. You shoulda been a surgeon!

    Triple C - he is the mechanic surgeon without a peer anywhere that I know of.

    John your ability to restore is surpassed only by your great "show and tell" thread. Man I love riding along on your thread.

    Thanks for sharing such great detail.
