I can't wait to see the completed version on the trail. Hope you get it done in time.
Thanks! Despite one setback after another I'm still plugging along. I broke a piston ring, so had to order another complete set from Australia, because I couldn't find anyone locally who carries them. Hopefully the rings would come in next week, otherwise I won't make it. At least I got the front part of the engine completely assembled again except for the belts, got the three pistons in and dissassembled the head, so will start putting the valves back tomorrow. I've got a few other things I need to finish up anyways, incl. cutting new C-clip grooves in my longfields so they don't slide in and out of the hubs and keep ruining my axle seals.
I see that as of today there are 39 spots open, so I think I'm going to hang on a bit longer before I register.
So, John I see in the introduction that you said VHF is pretty much mandatory. Does that mean you got your radio yet, or are you just going to buy one there? Might be a bit cheaper?
