Having finished rebuilding the top end of my Firestorm’s engine, today was the day I was going to breath life into her for the first time:)All bar one engine covers carefully replaced, chain and sprockets, a frenzy of activity:w00t:
The last job was to put on the clutch cover which I have just bonded a carbon fibre cover to(well sexy)
Hang on… just as i was about to replace the cover(old one was crash damaged) when i notice a gear wheel on the primary drive has a big chunk taken out of it!:crazy:
OH BORROX! I cried.
Work stops, i resign myself to putting my tools and bike away and calling it a day until I can order said part.
Now I’m indoors watching the rugby I thought I’d look on the Firestorm microfiche and low and behold… Its meant to have a lump missing:w00t:
It’s a bit called an “Ignition pulse generator rotor”:w00t:
I feel such a tw@t cos I could have had her running this afternoon:D
I will get cracking again tomorrow GP permitting;)
The moral is… study the manual before you do the job, not after…lol:w00t:
