Dry Build - Oil Tank & Air Filter

A bit more time this afternoon, and we can hang the oil tank in place:



The tank is supported on two 1/4" bolts at the front:

The air filter hangs from the sidecar mount using a special nut, with the batter carrier on the other side in common with Ariel practice since before the War.



The air filter is tied to one of the gearbox studs at the bottom:
