    Booking Bench Time...

    I am still up for having the pushrod tubes/seals replaced with shiney bling stainless new ones, parts shall be ordered this week, camping gear is all ready to be loaded, looking forward to meeting a few of you.

    So who else is wanting their bike on the bench?

    Theres space enough for every one,

    I think one or two will want to see how to replace the buggers...
    When you get your new ones see if you have an old socket the size of the OD we'll use that as a drift to get old 'uns out, then put head on the BBQ to warm it so as to slot the new 'uns in

    There will be enough workshop space and time for everyone. We should have 3 hydraulic lifts and enough tools and equipment to go around. I have my PD Classic on my lift at the moment awaiting its gearbox re-installation. To one side I have my wife's R80 which has been stripped to last nut and bolt and had every metal part powder coated. We might build this back up to a complete running bike over the weekend.

    I've got enough tools to cover most things so it is easier if people don't bring their own tools as less chance of getting them mixed up.

    My bikes will take secondary priority of course as I can fix them up afterwards.

    My parts arrived today, I have been checking the camping gear, lubricating my liver, and have stripped and sonic bathed the new carbs, ready to be built this weekend and taken out for a test run.
    Looking forward to the weekend, it will be my first camp of the year
