Good deal, glad the flap wheels worked for you. Of course there is still a place for the hard wheels, but I think it isn’t in my shop. LOL

Welp I managed to get out today and get the motor, trans, and frame washed down and even got the frame fully painted! Also got the motor paintwork done too! Waiting to service the trans before I paint that.

Cleaned off and organized the motor workbench so that I can get that back together and finished up. Just seeing how clean the piston was by doing nothing more than wiping it off with a rag, seeing as how it had absolutely no piston slap, and no scoring on the cylinder wall, I’ve seen all I need to see. No need to pulled the sump. I already know what’s up in there with the rod knock. So, I’m just gonna stick with a nice service, performance plug, jetted carb, and nice port and polish for a power boost.

Coming along nicely! I’m enjoying this little bit at a time way of doing things wayyy more than 2019 when I waited 4 months and then procrastinated the whole thing lol. If I can keep this pace up then this should be a very enjoyable build for once lol!

@Murraymountain  I wish we had your weather here in Indiana ! I need to get some preassure washing done on my frame as well but it's been dipping down into single digits and now ice and maybe 7-8 inches of snow.  Mad

It usually bounces back and forth between the 20's and the 60's in the winter here, lol. Kinda weird. We'll get into the single digits about one week out of the year. We almost never get into the negatives but every couple years it'll get that cold.

Funny thing about that picture  @Brianator  quoted, if you look on the hill in the background, you'll notice a bunch of snow on the ground lol. It snowed on Friday and the last of it finally melted today (and it's been in the 50s since Sunday). Weather is a peculiar thing lol.

Welp, haven’t done really anything to it since the last update. Hit a wall when I tried to finish the IFS. Got the wrong parts and it needs a little tlc to finish it and I just kinda put it off and everything ended up on the back-burner including the engine and trans. I pulled it all back out yesterday and got the trans ready to be serviced and on the workbench. So I’m getting myself ready to start working on this thing a little again. Got a whole herd of Murrays right now that I need to finish up and clear out of the shop and a trip to Florida ahead of me before I can start getting busy on this thing again but I’m getting prepared so hey that’s something!
