1200cc on the stand for storage.

The 1200CC had to be mounted on the trolley stand for storage. This will allow me to start it every now and then.
With these 2 pieces of wood it was nice and easy.
The electric pump was on the way, I will have to mount it elsewhere.
The tricky bit was when I found out the metalic bar was on the way as well.
It had to go.
Job done.

Getting ready for the new engine

Darren came today to help me to finalize the engine and remove the 1200cc. We tuned the Dellorto carbs with his Carburattor sync tool.
Very handy trolley which fits snug under the engine.
The oil pressure gauge had to be reconnected.
The new 12v starter motor is connected as well as the new fuel line.
And the electric full pump has been reconnected.
The electric harness has been sorted and the engine bay is ready to install the new motor tomorrow morning.
I took the opportunity to weld the throttle cable tube to the tinware.
