after party tidy up
she's covered in oil after the oil tank drain plug came out, fortunately the engine didn't seize as I'd shut down coming up to a roundabout, Sean found the bolt at the start of the oil slick, Jason was carrying a gallon of morris 20-50 oil and Sumo suggested we use the fresh cut grass on the verge to wipe the oil down
the gearbox is out again to fix those leaking studs and fit a new main shaft drive seal
and fix the selector that has quite a wobble after 30 years
Oil tank Drain Bolt
and drill the bolt so it can be wired, so no more accidents
it has a dual function and supports a third bracket - not a good idea.
(the tank was already painted by this time)
the bracket stops the tank swinging on its two upper mounting bungs where they can fracture.
a little polish and back she goes
battery tray and rear caliper next - that oil got every where
oh, and the front rocker box has decided to leak big time.
