Well I may as well start a thread on my current project, basically the Madness has been sitting idle for a couple of years as I could never afford to get it fixed up, initially the spark plug blew out on me (common thing I hear), stripped the threads in the cylinder head, etc etc, after that I parked it up until I could do something about it, now I just want to dig in and see how much work it needs to get back on the open (if only) road. So I've already replaced the cylinder head and got a second-hand exhaust system for it, which I was lucky to find as it has the EGR port on the downpipe, and all the new exhaust systems I found didn't have that, so good result there. I set the engine timing as per online guides, and the valve clearance as best I could with a feeler gauge (not too tight). Today I wanted to see if I could fire the engine up after an oil change, but resulted in finding a fuel spill from one of the hoses (separate thread). Few pictures from today. Some lovely Natural black Yogurt there, handy container as it turned out, fitted perfectly under the ramp. Got a complete new set of oil sump plug, O-ring, spring and oil strainer all together, and bunged them in before putting in fresh new oil. New spark plug too. Didn't get many more pics as was trying to focus on the job more, next task is to replace the leaking fuel hose and see if I can get her fired up.
