It runs great! ... and I know the rev's now!

After the first 250 km, I am really happy so far. One valve cover is leaking a bit, other than that, everything is cool!

As I like to know what is going on, I also installed the ISP West Tach, this is the before, the 3 instruments with the clock on the right:

Say hello, wave good bye

Opposed to what everybody thinks, it has finally happened! The new motor is in!
The trusty engine which gave me the opportunity to visit so many cool meetings in the last 4,5 years!
I don't think that my dear friend Ralf ever thought it would take so long. I owe you so much more than just a big thank you! I also didn't think it would take that long...
in between:


The Webers are installed and plumbed for fuel, the throttle linkage is adjusted, all electrical connections are done.
Tomorrow the CSP Python exhaust and the oil pan will be installed, maybe it will even get started for the first time ...

Visually, the difference is not that great, but I hope for almost the double power!

More news on this later!
