03-11-2014 04:33 PM glad to see this picture
cleaned, oiled, all plugs and on the stand.
This thing is a lint magnet, can't believe how much stuff
is on it already.
Got a couple issues with the brake job, got to step away for a while.
I'll be throwing things if not.
Tomorrow I'll gap rings and build pistons.
Buddy was over, we're standing by the car, a yellow jacket flew right into a crack
between the front door and the fire wall.
I suppose when I fire this thing up, I'm in for a surprise. I hosed it down with raid
stinks now.

The brake job is a little behind schedule you might say.
Found a leak yesterday and another today.
Hope for better luck tomorrow.
Did get the shop cleaned up and the block out there,
ready to clean. Shure would like to get all these parts out of the living room.
Tired of looking at them, and getting tired of this project.
Motor cycles can be done in a couple months. More my speed.
Twice the wheels and 4 times the cylinders.

03-06-2014 03:43 PM freezing cold soaking wet
guess I'm done for the day
earlier I did some brake bleeding W/ a vaccuummmm pump.
Found one fitting not even tightened- I'll have to talk to the night crew about that.
charged the battery for the triump last night, installed and a little gas.
4 kicks and fired wright up. Been since june or july. Decided to ride it down for some gas,
then a loop down by the river- oh well might as well get cold. That thing is a blast to ride.
Anyway it's out in the back yard, and I've got room in the shop
for assembling the motor, as soon as the brakes are finished.
