Thanks Mark ! Now, to look through my stash and see if I can find a decent 12 degree AA unit. I do have a Pazon ignition for it but am leaning toward points for initial startup and running right now.

I'm putting a Pazon in my 71 T100R, I was hoping to have the bike on the road about a month ago, but some other non bike related issues happened, what about clutch adjustments, I have new plates and springs and have it pretty much straight, just how much can it be rode without the primary put back on if I want to do some tweaking to the clutch

Thanks Red. I am working on the gas tank now as well as the oil tank and side cover. I should have the AA unit installed in the next day or two.

Missed the collection time at my neighborhood drop off yesterday, so you'll likely receive it Saturday.

Proper 12 degree AAU installed as well as the points plate. This was done after bringing the assembly to 38 degrees BTDC, confirmed with both valves closed on RH cylinder, pointer on primary cover pointing to line on alternator rotor aaand timing tool dropped in slot in crankshaft located at the timing plug at the rear of the cylinders.


Getting closer !!

Slowly but surely getting things done. Next task is the oil tank.


Gas tank with base coat of silver.

[Linked Image]


Side cover/toolbox stripped and getting ready for some filler to be applied. I hammered most of the deep gash/dent out from the backside.

[Linked Image]


A PO had cut the middle of the toolbox out with snips or something facepalm I just used my Dremel to clean up the jagged edges and leave it be.

Got the Bondo applied. There are two layers applied so far to the large dent on the oil tank and I will do another layer on it tomorrow for good measure. There is quite a bit of sanding that has been done up to this point !

Lookin' good, Jon! The joys of salvaging these old bikes, bit by bit.

Re. Bondo, maybe you do this already ... to cut down on sanding, I use a SurForm file before the Bondo is fully hardened, to shave down the excess before sanding. HTH smile
