I really enjoy following your restoration work Cobba, thank you for sharing.

I am thinking you might also find benefit in using poly strip discs for paint removal.  I use 125mm Smith & Arrow, coarse.

They are also terrific for un-covering/cleaning stamped engine/chassis numbers, as they clean brilliantly, but don't affect/scratch the parent metal in any way.

Will give them a try. Used some blue disc from Josco for removing paint n wore away too quick n was pricey. Went back to using 80 grit sand paper discs which were brilliant

That unit is in considerably better condition than the one I currently use! (slightly later, orange one with plastic cowl).

All assembled n fuelled up but no go. Found a leaky condensor n now have good spark at the plug. But since fixing the electrics the fuel tap with 2 new 0 rings started dripping past the nrw 0 rings n feeding the carby.

After talking to another restorer he told me these are almost impossible to repair. The 2 0 rings are easy but there is another seal that wears over time that the small pointy part of the plunger must make the seal. When looking deep inside it is a tubular shape maybe 1/4" long. I made a small hook to try n remove it but no go, an easy out no go so I drilled it out. So tomorrow off to my bearing shop to see what I can adapt, use or make just to waste some more time. If it fails I will buy a plastic tap.
