Re: 74 XL350 Build

Second installment of zinc plating is back :happy:
Can get on with fitting the engine cases back together now.
Made a small start on polishing the fork lowers as well.

Tappet adjusting tool

Buying some XL350 parts from David Silvers last night and decided to get one of their tappet tools while there..
Hopefully it might make things a little easier?

Re: 400/4 restoration

Well bad news from the guy I took the engine to :doh:
Seems the the engine may require a complete rebuild rather than just a quick top end touch up. :cry:

The original seller suggested it had had new rings and the bottom end was good
Another money pit com'n up :-?
