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
lord those tanks are awful! haha, im sure they are nice for capacity no doubt. definitely great for beating up!
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)
I got the same tank for my 82 CR250
what did you use for a petcock?
Mine already has one. I'll look and see if it's identifiable.
click a photo if you could please. I found a couple generic plug in types online but want to get the right one.
One would think it would use a stock husky petcock. Just sayin
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.
lookin the goods
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.
those look great!
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.
Pretty fancy for a rock bike...looks nice!
