This has been a very cool build. Everything has a very clean finished look. Looking forward to seeing what other modifications are in store for the future.

Thanks! 1969 Wheel Horse 700 WORKHORSE - Page 6 2731072446 I like to make things clean looking but sometimes I think I over think alot of things and make it way too complicated. biglaugh But I should have some more upgrades coming!

I hope everyone had a happy new year! Yesterday I remade the choke return spring bracket, this time making use of both bolt holes so hopefully it wont decide to move around anymore.

This is what I made originally. It's just a piece of sheet metal with 2 holes in it. It worked good but I had to really tighten down that screw to keep it from moving around, and I've had it come loose a couple of times.

I used the old piece as a reference and cut this rough template out of cardboard to get the shape I needed.

Then I transferred the holes onto a piece of aluminum which is just an old light switch bracket, then I cut it out and rounded the edges off. I used aluminum because its alot easier to work with when making small brackets and things, plus I wont have to worry about painting it.

I got it all bolted up and it's definitely alot sturdier than it was before, plus it hopefully wont come loose anymore since it uses both bolt holes.

I ordered a new gas tank off of Amazon. It's a Colman mini bike gas tank so it has the offset fuel cap but most importantly its black! LOL! I could have gotten a cheap honda gx200 replacement tank but all the reviews said it leaked around the cap and it cracks easily, plus I couldnt live with having a white gas tank. I know, I know, I could have painted it but it's too cold for that and plus sanding powdercoat sucks.
But I paid alittle more for this one and honestly it's pretty nice, it only has one tiny dent in it and it's on the bottom where you cant even see it.

So today all I managed to get done was get the fuel pump plate off of the motor and mock up the new tank.

I also needed to get a new air filter cause when I took the old one out it pretty much fell apart in my hand. Neutral I'm surprised it didnt get sucked through the carburetor. So while I was ordering my gas tank I also got a new air filter.......well actually you could get 2 air filters for 8 bucks or you could get 3 air filters, 3 fuel filters, and 3 sparkplugs for 12 bucks so I went with them. Very Happy

The old one

The new filters and what not

I also got new front wheel bearings too. Nothin wrong with the old ones, they're just sloppy, but they were in the original rims when I got it and I just swapped them over to the 80s craftsman rims that are on it now.
