Had an eventful afternoon got had a window fall in during the storms so had to nip out an get a piece of glass an started on the engine rebuild yay! Made some epic progress so might even have the cases together an cylinders on tomorrow. If the weathers good though wanna try do a bit on my rd250c aicrooled.
Thanks to Andy who pointed it out over on the fb group totally missed that I had put the base gaskets on flipped. Just waiting on new top end genuine gaskets arriving. Then the top end should be back on the egine on monday
So I ended up redoing Part 3 of the video today new gaskets came an I finally had the chance to get the top end back on I guess most of the delay was me thinking what to do with the bike as I've took her in a direction I initially didn't expect to an used quite a few more NOS parts than initially intended.
So actually gonna decide whether to keep her or not an whether to fire her up or not bit muddled on what to do currently, but for now I'm gonna continue building her together.
Got the oil pump back from Arrow last week as well ready to fit.
