Perrib, I believe you have a 6 rib bus gearbox installed on an angle, can you als make a picture of how the engine sits. I might get my hands on one and am curious.

Installed new plug wires. Cleaned out the breather box. Installed new air filter and breather box filter. Removed home depot bathroom style breather hoses and installed new black breather hoses and routed for for a cleaner look. Wiped off oil leak on RR swingaxle/gearbox...leak at the axle tube to box. Topped off reduction box oil levels.

Tooled around in the snow a bit. Quickly discovered that there was no heat. Thought I had a bad thermostat but after some tests with a heat gun it checked out, discovered that in my haste in the installation that I just misadjusted it. Shocked
Got that squared away, now just need a few odds and ends to increase heat capture (heater box sleds, duct work on rear exhaust to heater box).

Nothing to mine but I did convert Caversmoon's Bug into a baja by installing a 4 piece front kit. Smile Pics to come soon!

Replaced/rerouted breather box hoses, new plug wires, new K&N air filter with UNI Filter Wrap. Surprising that simple little things can make a pretty big difference in appearance.
