Slippin' and slidin'

Moving swiftly on...

Not a huge amount to report today, but the gearbox is now filled with a 50/50 mix of Castrol LM grease and 20W/50 engine oil.

Access to the gearbox filler entails removal of the oil tank, which I don't have the knack for yet. The oil tank is very tight to the frame tube, can't be tilted forward because of the distributor and the frame seat tube, can't be tilted back because of the toolbox and the mudguard and is generally a pain...

However, the gearbox is now filled with about 450 ml of oil/grease mix and the oil lines have their hose clips in place - modern ones unfortunately.

Tomorrow we will have a major step forward - we are having a visit from a local AOMCC member, Patrick Huthwaite, whose inspection is the next step in the registration process.

Hopefully it won't rain.
