Try to retain OE position of GB mount & adjust the engine mounts to save propeller shafts from modification.
Sreejith actually the wiring which i got with the engine is badly damaged . Looks like someone very hungry chewed on it .

So my mechanic says its of no use , needs too much cutting and joining so im also not keen on it . New wirng need to be done

Bangaloreans can anybody tell me a good lathe where i can get the engine and GB mated .

Nice wheels but why do you want to put them on when the build is happening, chances of damage are more and then things like paint over spray. Remove them and store them safe.

sorry baba,
i for some reasons dont get p.m's
first of all dont get your gearbox and engine mated at a lathe shop
theres an easier way to do it, and will take only 20 minutes.
you can use that spare time in designing proper engine mounts
ill send you pictures of mine
again im sorry if i did not reply to your previous p.m's if you did send them
you can directly contact me(Allan 09833884020) , ill guide you regarding the mating and any other help need
be advised: your getting into fun territory and be prepared to loose some of your hair over the wiring

Sugan - can you share details of where you bought the tires and at what price? You can PM me if you like.

Allan and I are hunting for decent MT tires and the sooner I get my own set...the sooner he gets his own tires and wheels back

The alloys look pretty neat , how much did you pay for them? I'm in the rebuild process of my 1.0 carb and would soon need to get a set of tyres and alloys for the same.

You can PM me the details if you wish
