    Managed to get the fan housing seated properly now and connected up to the thermostat rod so now screwed down

    Trying to get the fan off the dynamo so I can start to put the alternator together.

    Will start to install the inlet manifolds next then onwards and upwards :)

    A few more bits added.

    The carb manifold (and the carb loosely put on).

    Woodruff key was missing for the fitment at the end of the dynamo so made one:

    All ready now.

    And it failed when I used brute force to get the nut off :(

    Should I just weld on the end the pulley as the dynamo is very noisy?

  4. If your Dynamo is noisy then there’s a problem with it
    Might be worth upgrading to an alternator

  5. I have already bought an alternator so the plan is to ditch it.
    Question is is it worth something or not (if not then I can weld a nut onto the end of it to use to help get the big nut off at the fan end!!)
     
  6. I doubt a knackered dynamo will be worth much fella.

  7. Thanks - will weld it up then !
     
  8. Epic fail - weld a nut to the end and with help from my son we managed to just snap the threaded end off of the dynamo.
    Will take it to a garage to see if they can help........

    Remembered that I hadn’t tackled the fire board (in my case metal) that goes above the engine and connects to the bottom of the rear deck..

    It had been cut by the PO as the carburetor they had used was none standard and was too tall so the last few days I have been cleaning them up - will fabricate some new metal, weld it in and then put them back before the engine goes in.

    Hope to get them fit for purpose this week.

    Made up an edge piece using some scrap metal (having squared off the area removed first)

    Added some more metal to bridge the gap.

    Just need to tidy everything up then can weld the new metal in.

    Not sure whether to bother putting in some holes…..


    Try and make the parts for the other piece to fill the cut tomorrow.

    First part welded on and the welds ground down.

    Doesn’t have to be too neat as it will be difficult to see so just some paint and all good.
