Jamie...enjoyed you being there. Think you should acquire a BSA. Ditto for Corbin.

I would have gladly supplied the starter rollers I had in camp. A couple of rotations and #27 would have come to life.

Thanks Gary.... I did think about that.... But then we would not have put the effort into sorting it out. Three days in it became a one kick starter thanks to Semper Gumby and good advice from Goldstar Ron in California....

Not only did it become a one kick starter, but it idles pretty nicely now, too, as I recall.

Lads... late chiming in to show some appreciation for those of you less slack than myself at posting some pics & a yarn or two.

I fully plan to share what I have in my camera depicting the exploits of the Greenspring express and the No Name Man Nomads. I promise pics and tales this weekend. Work is - well work, and it is getting in the way of important things.

Boomer... love your spread & yes... I did spot those vines. Lovely estate you have there.

Jamie... great to meet you and happy to hear you are now a BSA convert. Front row carnage witnessing aside grin

Cheers for now lads.... back to.... work.

Jim

Hey Alan,
I don't think it was so much the accident, but more the subsequent attempt at bodging together a working throttle and throttle cable which disturbed the GP carb settings.

Correct Jamie. But the Float level was wrong to start with which is why it was so hard to start even before the accident. 20 to 40 kicks before the accident... No Go after. Cant wait to try it again this weekend. Will it still be a one kicker???
