    Another test run over Mt Nebo and Mt Glorious on the MC22. Change to a conical fuel filter seems to have solved the fuel starvation issue, but will also replace the fuel tap vacuum hose as well just to be sure.

    Swung by a friend's place on the way home and was pleasantly surprised to see that he'd dusted off his old 1981 TZ250 and was getting it going again, as well as doing some cleaning and refinishing of metal parts - have referred Kiffsta for some wetblasting :thumb_ups: . Also showed me some cool never before seen photos of him on an RG500 in the early '80s at Fuji racetrack :neo:.

    @A.C you do know that the MC22s don't run an inline fuel filter! They have a strainer over the intake tubes within the tank. You remove the petcock/fuel tap to get at this. Have you removed the standard strainer and fitted am in-line filter. As they are gravity fed, there is not much fuel head/pressure to reliably get fuel through a filter.

    Yep, am aware of this. The in-tank strainer is not in the best of shape. Incidentally, I have run an inline filter on my other 22 for years without issue. But, as the problem now seems to be solved, and the bike is for sale and isn't a keeper, I'm not going to fuss over it too much more.

    Still waiting on bits for my Spada. Just looked at tracking of some gaskets coming from Kentucky, USA.
    Package cleared customs on 21/5. With destination courier (AusPost?) in Chullora, NSW on 26/5. With destination courier in Whelshpool, WA on 31/5.
    I am in Melbourne.
    Now I know that Auspost are indicating that some post may come by a different route, but NSW to WA to Vic seems like a crazy route.
    I still do not have the parcel yet.

    As much as I partake in slagging off Aussie post when they stuff up I had a win with them today. I ordered some parts from wemoto at Bombaderry yesterday at 10am.. today they arrived at 9:30 am. If they keep this service up I will be a happy camper.

    I was not intending to hang it on AusPost. More an observation about what is happening in these strange times. I am sure there is a logical reason why my parcel appears to be taking such a torturous route. May not the most efficient but probably based on availability of transport connections.

    I generally like to support govt industries, old enough to remember when water, electricity, gas, pretty much all essential services were govt owned and run.. to a point competition and privatisation can drive down prices and improve service but when the vast majority of the profit goes offshore and our taxes then begin increasing not sure we are any better off in the long run. I was just amazed how long it took Aussie post to hire more staff when they were overrun with more business due to the lockdown. There were thousands of people looking for jobs, they needed more staff and they sat on their hands for weeks. Private industry would never do this.

    Looks more like a $99 Aldi stick welder and somebody who should never weld again... I have seen Bird crap laid in a better run than that.

    I've done that sort of welding, trying to patch rust holes in thin wall. You burn a bigger hole, so a weld 10,000 tacks is required. Or could replace it...
