Gauges

Thought it was time I fitted these gauges, they are 2-5/8″th so nice and big with white dials so they sort of match the SL gauges I have fitted. Not yet wired up the lights or the volt meter. The Oil pressure gauge shows a nice healthy 60 psi when...

Today I thought I would have another try at the tappets, and maybe change a few of the rocker stud nits as they were too loose, there is also a tight as hell nut. So get the tools out, in the rain I might add (see I am keen!), warm...
