That's a good question. I guess I hadn't thought that far. We definitely want to get out and play in the 40, but I have that carb/tuning project on the other rig I'm trying to sort out too. Parts have finally arrived for that, so time will be split between the two rigs for a while. I'll most likely take the Hundy to play in the sand. Didn't @REZARF mention something about organizing a 40s only run?If it was around that range I think you did pretty good. Do you plan to have it road trip worthy in time for a 406 Cruisers trip to St. Anthony this year? (assuming travel is okay and all the other stuff) I'm hoping to get my 40 out a few times this year for some of the more mild events.
I agree about oil being a rust protection measure. I used to clean all that off. Now I embrace it.Oil leak= rust protection. I try to let everything leak a little.
Old unspent cartridges are worth quite a bit in todays culture = Cruiser parts.
Looking good man, I'll come by sometime and give it a once over with you if it'd be helpful? Sell, the bullet and send the carb to Jim C. you can thank me profusely in the future. Why do you want to pull the timing chain cover? Is that where your leak is at?
Really solid start man. My cruiser has a ton of holes that never had bolts in them. Some are for hardtop models, but there are several threaded holes and captured nuts on mine that are still factory painted inside. I am the second owner of my 40 too... so it's pretty factory correct all things considered.
Good eyes! I totally missed that air chuck fitting. PO installed that bit.looks like the hose is already rubbing the diff.
hope there is enough clearance when the axle moves
that doesn't look like a hose barb fitting, looks like an air chuck type fitting
