Re: Build tread (kind of)

I wanted a oil pressure meter but i'm too cheap to buy the kit from Stein dinse (14 e! for a banjo bolt) so i made my own as usual. Started with a left over coupling, brazed on a bit and threaded with 1/8 npt. IMG_20210806_043902_151.jpg Fitted. IMG_20210806_043902_160.jpg And then covered it all up...

Re: Build tread (kind of)

Thank you! There was a rubbing between the drive shaft and a piece of alu sheet that has been fixed. The knocking from the engine sounds completely different in real life. I have ordered a valve recall kit since it seems like most guzzi-knowers recommend it to be fixed. It would be a bit of a bummer...

Re: Build tread (kind of)

A small step forvard and one backward. Took some electrical tubes and made a sketch of how the frame could be made. 20210725_183832.jpg It definetly needs some adjustments before i am satisfied with the lines but it feels like a good start. 20210725_183548.jpg I could not resist a little test drive....

Re: Build tread (kind of)

The charge indicator lamp is a current limiting device to provide small power supply to the charging circuit prior to start up. So best stick with a filament lamp. Interesting to note that in the model rail world, they use a filament lamp in circuits to minimise power consumption in the event of de...

Re: Build tread (kind of)

I also mocked up an exhaust system. Instead of the usual way of using the original Moto Guzzi exhaust i made one myself that ends up on the passenger side. The finned exhaust flange are from some other Guzzi, the bolts fitted but the pipe diameter is 48mm now so some pursuation was needed. Not as be...

Re: Build tread (kind of)

As Nanny Ogg said - I aten't ded. The spring was long and cold and i had to prioritise other thing than enjoying the build. In a bit of random order here are a few pictures.. I found a light weight catch tank for the reverse gear box. Just added some pipes and fittings. IMG_20210530_194648_726.jpg A...
