Jox, pumping is only normal on vehicles that require brake work.

Sample, can you see any bubbles come up through the reservoir when somebody pumps the brakes?

It ended up being the passenger rear wheel cylinder leaking. I ordered new brake parts from Chirco today.

Meh, it ran great for the first 15 miles of the journey to work. Hit the little hill westbound on the 60 before Gilbert Rd. Running at about 65-68mph started sputterinng and popping and died. I coasted off the freeway, came to a stop, tons of smoke coming out of my breather.


Let it sit awhile, now the timing seems too far advanced. Got it started, won't stay idling but I limped it home down southern.

I've been monkeying with the timing on mine too. So far, running it out of gas this afternoon in the neighborhood is the only trouble it's given me though! Do you still want to check out that Dellorto book I've got? Lemme know if you wanna come by...

Ha, I ran out of gas once too. I also over filled my gas tank this morning, all over the ground.

I would love to look at that dell book, I will have to find a time.

Chris-

I work at Power and the 60, and pretty much set my own hours. I live at Power and McKellips, so if you wanna stop by the house, that's fine too. I can bring the book to work if you want to swing by there.

Lemme know.

Tony

Well, I just traded the BAJA for a 20 ton shop press from Harbor Freight and $500.
