Csp linkage bracket blocks the oil can return line. Had to modify the bracket heavily. Welded and Allen wrench to it for more support. Don't look too close.

Clown college for sure, my welds suck...... hey is that bird poop on that bracket? Nope.

Seems like you dotted all your "i's" and crossed all your "t's", it'll be fine...

Due to neck injury I still haven’t started this 36er

But I’m getting better and it’s time to get back on it.

Professor Chumbucket stopped by and recommended I clean the new carbs. Will start on that.

Have to figure out lines and mount for oil filter as it won’t fit in the mango like it would in a bug. :thumbs:

Nope...1st start on a new engine is always a little nerve-wracking :)
