    I ran a ground wire from the mag plate to the coil mount. I also did what Joe said.

    making some progress, Bottom end is done, top end is out for a fresh bore.
    Picked up a MS Tank for racing, pretty fat but I kind of like the white whale look 16174809_10212151829290393_4786856564685032755_n.jpg 16114367_10212167406239807_8537444979837487248_n.jpg

    Yeah, at least it's something to grab on to. My stock tank has no dents that I can see. This one's only for race day. (maybe)

    Mine already has one. I'll look and see if it's identifiable.

    It's just about a 1/2 hole, no screws. Dan RM found one that basically press fits into place.

    Were you able to fix your expansion chamber or did you find a replacement. I know it is difficult to find one because it took me 4 years to find one myself. That chamber is a one year only deal as the 82 chamber is just enough different to be annoying.

    Yup I got lucky, One of my buddies had one sitting behind his oil tank for about 25 years and dug it out for me.

    Nice!
    The petcock is a stock Husky item. they threaded it into the tank and then used a lock nut on the thread to hold it in place.

    thanks, one of my very talented vintage buddies, offered to restore them for me and he went over and above what I could have ever done.
