Headlamps, wiring and hand made adapters
In addition to this minor win - I sorted the first seven sections in three parts books. The fourth book has been reduced to random pieces. The goal is to get the most up to date book, scan it into a PDF and sell at least one (or two) of the books. I'll have a digital copy, a physical copy and the early book for reference. I'm trying to pace myself with this project because it's very time-consuming and not terribly interesting. It's about on par with sorting nuts, bolts and screws (which is basically done).
Possibly tomorrow, I'll be heading over to my favorite home improvement store to pick up a sheet of slightly thicker sheet metal so that I can mangle it into more consistent shapes to better hold the headlight buckets.
The USPS, predictably, arrived so late in the day that the mail truck almost required the use of headlamps so I didn't get to fix the wiring for the safety relay...but I do have them so it's just a matter of 30 minutes to get that installed.
I'll also be ordering a fuel pressure regulator - I think the left carb is getting flooded with fuel and that's contributing to the tuning and starting issues. I should take a video and send it to the engine builder for ideas...
