Now that's what I call a warm welcome. Thanks. Pete, at the risk of sounding dense...You probably caught on to that a couple years ago...Apart from tracking down that elbow and installing it, am not sure what to do. I took a bit of fine wire...a bread bag tie if you must know, and reamed out the breather hole at the filler cap. As it appears to have a 90 degree chicane in it, I cant be sure it's clean.
There is a small diameter hose on the left side with a small brass union that I cant identify on the diagrams I have that was clogged with something like beeswax and copper corrosion. Cleaned that out.
Apart from that, I don't know where to go except to maybe replace that little grey canister the rear tank breather hose connects to. Suggestions?
And here's the thing. It's definitely not doing it now. I will keep an eye on it as the temps rise.
Tune the Le Mans!! I can tuna fish, but I can't tune a Le Mans! Thing is, it hasn't needed it.
It's got a Dyna, the carbs don't seem to drift much, so if my cables are adjusted and ok and ditto the valves, well, it just goes. It's at a point where it needs me to focus on it hard owing to years of benign neglect. Injuries...work...blah....blah, pretty sure it needs coils, and I have some f08's stashed as the nipples are busted off the old ones. I may be able to get the old ones out, but I expect this to be difficult. Once I have those vacuum gauges, the coils, and the brakes done it's mostly cosmetic.
Blinker module? Anyway, it fires right up, warms up a touch, you hear a click and it starts running on one cylinder. Am really trying to figure out if I should do a cosmetic restoration as well. Am pretty inclined to leave it alone, just stick to a functional restoration. I'll send you a pic sometime.
The GRiSO has got most if not all of its power back. The front end feels...twitchy, unplanted.
