Breather check valve is missing the ball and retainer - wonder where they went? Grungy mess from leaking breather hoses. Stripped for cleaning and a little paint touch-up. Battery acid had leaked onto the frame some. The back of the transmission is especially grungy. After an hour of scrubbing with a toothbrush and mineral spirits. ditto Removed the starter so I could clean the left side as well. Touched up the rusted crossmember New rear tire installed. Front tire installed. Rewiring the starter relay. Originally the brown wire jumpered over to where I've installed the fused heavy gauge red wire. Problem was the brown wire sometimes wouldn't supply enough juice the kick the starter solenoid in. This fixes that problem. Right side cleaned, touched up and reassembled. « previous | next » View Full-Size Image Some very small rodent has been busy - acorn shells in the air filter housing.
