you probably wouldn't believe me if I said I have been on the electrics for 13 months and this is what I have to show for it.
Not a pretty sight, not helped by having added a pile of wires to split the headlights horn and indicators and extra stuff like the starter switch and voltmeter.
I shall have to find a way of stuffing it out of sight somehow.

Attachment:
IMG_0558 (1).JPG


and not any prettier seen from here. But most of it seems to work, so far. Still got the fuel gauge to fit.

Attachment:
IMG_0554.JPG



Which seems too big for its hole, but there was nothing else there when I pulled it apart.

Attachment:
IMG_0556.JPG



So I have cut out a rubber sheet to fill the gap.

IMG_0553.JPG


I don't have the right parts manual for this model so this spring and the gauge fitting itself aren't shown, but it looks fairly straightforward to reassemble.

Fuel line next.

That wiring looks like 13 months worth of fiddling, to me. I'd think I'd have more of a mess than that if I was doing it :smilie_happy:
Best of luck and keep on making progress :good:

FUEL LINE

Looking forward from the back:
Stripey gold thing at top is the tank, red wheel the on/off tap, fuel line standard stuff, runs forward. Stainless pipe clamps.

Running forward to the inline filter. Where your fuel tank sits is my battery box. I will strap the fuel line to the frame.

Attachment:
rev10.JPG



Closer look; I will probably shorten the lower fuel line a few inches.

The engine paintwork has taken a beating over the last 6 years.

A nice winters job sitting by the Aga, although I had to brave the cold to turn down a piece of badly sawn 3x10.
Cavity cut for seating the Rev counter assembly.

Attachment:
clock1.1.JPG


It is held together by a thin, spun collar that I prised open to dismantle it. I carefully dressed the collar using a drift to get it back into shape so it fitted into the recess in the wood.

Attachment:
rev4.JPG


Because of age, arthritis and probably too much whiskey, I have to improvise to hold things tightly. Thus this whole assembly.

Attachment:
clock1.3.JPG


This pic, ignoring the coke and Economist, shows the underside with the instrument housing pulled down tight using the 2x4mm threaded holes.

Attachment:
clock1.4.JPG


The top is secured by 2 bent straps. All this pushes it together with some force and the next step is to figure out a way to fold the lip of the collar back over the glazed cover. Needless to say I would rather not attempt this with a hammer.

Attachment:
clock1.5.JPG


To be continued, I hope
