    They look well made. I use Loctite LB 8009 to deal with the galling issue.

    What are you planning on going on a nation wide crusade to check that every 10mm bolt is adequately torqued?

    More like what the postman isnt delivering today... I find Aramex (formerly Fastrack- poor choice of name) to be probably the worst delivery company... not the contractors who do the delivery but the main organisation.
    I ordered a new 6v Coil for the SL125 from Melbourne... and today I have this notification... hmm I didnt realise the Sunshine Coast was on the way from Melbourne to Albury..... :headbang:

    The ZXR is approx 98% finished, but the dreaded zxr carb curse is still being a pain in the ARSE. So i have cleaned etc the carbs (yes i used Litetek carb kit) ages ago. Still playing up so sprayed engine start around the carb holders and yes idle difference was apparent. Got a quote from Kawasaki NZ $300 for the 4 holders. Signed up to Impex and ordered them on the 23rd of July and they arrived today. Cost $142 delivered to my door. NZ$ What a saving. So guess what i am doing this weekend. IMG_1948.JPG

    Never had a “small block” guzzi, or even ridden one but if this little guy is half as good as the media/reviews in 1980 stated it’s gonna be a “keeper”. It looks like, with the exception of the throttle, it’s all there so it’ll be a crank removal, clean out crank “sludge trap, check/possibly replace big end plain bearings, check everything, rebuild carbs /satin black 2 Pac on frame, paint, plate or polish every thing in sight etc etc . Going for a near concourse finish on this little museum piece.

    Good plan. Looking forward to seeing the end result (and maybe some updates along the way).

    Ahhhh Toyota….. if you have to have 4 wheels under you these are the 4 to have….. my 93 Toyota hiace has well over 300,000 kms and is counting the months till it qualifies for historic rego.. paid $1300 for it 6 years ago and it’s only needed a new water pump and some oil( and about 1/2 a ton of rust cut out but it did come from the beach: )… fantastic
