Ok. Tomorrow is the big day for Biggn. The fuel pump rebuild was a success. It was very toigh to come apart as you can tell from it previous condition. I am so ready to hear the rumble from a V2K.

Slow down a bit. Before you try and fire bigun I suggest you unplug the rectifiers and check this plugs for corrosion. Be ready for a dreadful clicking racket from the top of the engine as chances are good that the hla's have bled down. When you start it let it run for no more than 2 minutes and don't rev it much. You want to wake her up slowly and keep her happy
It has new plugs. New oil. Each cylinder was sprayed with lubicant. Tank has been cleaned inside. Fuel pump rebuilt. Are you saying to check my plug wires.
Its very rusty, look that you take the tank full of fuel if you parked her for winter.
It was a barn find. I pulled it out of a shed where it has sat for over three years. I have gone thru the de rusting of it .
Check the plugs on the rectifiers (under the rad right side. The finned things). Make sure they have no corrosion. My concern is nothing has moved for 3 years. The previous owner did a small favour by filling the engine with oil but nothing has gone to the top. Fire er up but just let er idle for a bit
