rear mudguard reinforcement bracket or rear brake hose guide bracket.These parts but may not be needed as the bike is not standard.

I almost have all of them.
Can't figure out which is the two stroke oil pump bleed hose bracket ? :smt017

And then I started to work on the carbs.
A friend offered to try to weld to broken part on the carb body. I'll give him a try. So I strip it down.

I think I quite understand how this strange beast work.
I couldn't remove the very small air jet that we see in the bottom of the entry side.
Couldn't untightened neither the small screw that holds the cylinder in which the needle valve slides.

I left everything immersed in white vinegar for some hours, for a first draft of cleaning.
Works quite good.

Here is the bleed clamp

Also missed your front brake hose clamp brackets are missing but you may not need them.

Thanks.

It must be somewhere... but where..?

Today I started the sanding of the fuel tank.
The sanding machine is a little tight for this tank, but it will work with patience.

I did the complete bottom
Image

Most important for me is to have very clean edges

Did you know the front and rear fuel tank bracket supports were brazed, not welded ?

Nice work, keep the photo's coming :cool: :cool:

The bleed clamp will held on by one of your engine clutch cover bolt near the kick start.

I think I remember having this part, it will show up one day, probably just the day after I receive a new one by post mail.

About the fuel tank bracket, the colour of material is close to brazing, but the look and all the projections are not in line with the brazing process.
Maybe due to the thin skin they do welding with a specific additional material ?

Any welding expert here ?

I don't need to send this one for plating, as it's probably brand new under the layers of grease ;) .

Little more progress today.

I think I'll be done by Friday. Then a quick layer of primer to prevent it from rusting.

Dunno where I saw that (maybe the guys from Monkey Garage), but they had a car where large areas of the coating just came off in one single piece.
They said it was due to (soda?) blasting the old color off. They said it would be a typical issue with lazy slackers that wanted to save the tiresome sanding job.

Can't tell if it's true, but maybe you can google if there's real issues.
