So a little update. I had a fuel leak but I'm pretty sure it was the fuel petcock. I had put a rebuild kit in it but it never seemed right, very stiff to turn. So I order a new one, surprised there was any. Put it on a bit ago much easier to turn now, so fingers crossed. Also someone turned me onto a guy in Italy who is making reproduction side covers so I'm getting those too, supposed to be shipped Monday. Pretty good deal I think as the price when available was about $150 each, I'm getting a pair for $175 shipped.

gasser. This has 220k on it, had a blown head gasket. Looks like I'm going to be totally rebuilding the head, the valves are pretty loose in the guides. Ordered new valves and guides this morning. Cylinders weren't too bad so I am getting a master rebuild kit, has pistons. Figured the ring lands probably had wear in them....
