Guess it's down to working on the engine next then.

You could clean it and stick it back in and try to get it running, or strip and service anything that needs doing.

Must be something in the air.Another one coming back on line.

I reckon it's engine next too.If you've got a braking rolling chassis then it's the logical next step.Engine in, exhausts, electrics, carbs.Then get it sparked up.Then if everything seems ok...............Bodywork.

Did I say "logical" :shock: I've never said that before :| or done anything,anything like...... :?

i have a bit of a problem, going over the project as a whole and im not sure the rear wheel assembly is put together correctly.

do these look correct, as im sure the is a gap between the rear caliper arm and the hub of the wheel that shouldnt be there, any tell me if this is ok or post a pic up of theirs?

cheers

That looks fine to me Lee. there is a small gap between the spacer and the wheel.The inside of the spacer will be sitting along side the bearing inside the hub.Here's a pic of mine from a while ago.

Ignore the stella bottle :oops:

that reminds me of the time when one of our members posted a picture on the forum of their back wheel when they thought the swingarm was bent - turns out they neglected to fit the caliper bracket between the wheel and the swing arm. #-o

Not quite as bad as the member who thought his clutch was knackered because it wouldn't pull away when in gear - turned out they neglected to fit the chain!! #-o

.....saying that though, last year I mended a puncture on my mountain bike, but forgot to tighten the front wheel nuts - you can guess what happended! ](*,)

Yes, we must meet up. I can't believe we still haven't, seeing as we're only about 10 miles apart.
