    Is this applicable to my setup?

    Hi Alex,
    I can't tell from your pic but you may already have a threaded brass connection at the carby?
    Should look like this or similar



    5/8" sounds right for the fuel hose, also as you are using an aftermarket electric fuel pump consider a tachometric relay for safety. . . or you might be out of the frying pan and into

    The cylinder head should be retorqued and the valves adjusted after you have run the engine 750-1000km. 500-600 miles.

    Been too long since an update.

    Progress has been made on rust areas. Overall not a lot of rust but one area I did find was the lower attachment point for one of the front bumper rubbers.

    I made up this repair pannel from some scrap gal sheet - I think any D cant have too much sacrificial zinc.

    Borrowed a mates mig for the welding. Took a bit of time to stretch the metal to the little bit of compound shape but came up ok - for an amateur.

    The old parts and the made up pannel and captive nut

    The hardest bit I've found is making a good enough patch panel to fit..... That is really well done

    I have read countless warnings regarding the front wheel bearing seals not being up to much as far as keeping out contamination.

    They are sealed for life and the proper rebuild looked pretty daunting.

    The guys in the Netherlands put up a great YouTube video about adding in a grease nipple to the front hub to allow greasing the front bearings.

    I added this grease nipple and initially used it to flush out the bearing I figured if the seals can't keep rubbish out they can't keep rubbish in.

    I setup a fuel pump, multiple inline fuel filters some hose and a bucket. It's best to do this on a rotating bearing so second gear at idle was my carefully calculated rotation speed.... I used kerosene despite not enjoying the odour much.

    A lot of rubbish came out. The cheap ebay fuel filters don't filter well despite using 4 in series. I changed the kero to finish it off.

    Adding the grease back in I put in slow while the bearing spinning easy to blow any seals with a grease gun.

    Hope this makes some sense, not a rebuild in any way but a good way to achieve non invasive preventative maintenance.
