Scrambler Ignition

Last night got started on the Scrambler and have to keep reminding myself that Paul only wants me to get it running! Such a nice bike, it is very tempting to try and fix everything, must remain strong!

Started with the most obvious, the points cover is off, no points plate and mechanical advance is frozen;

After a good soak with WD-40 and some gentle persuasion, removed the advance mechanism so it can be cleaned and freed up;

Advance reinstalled and working freely;

Removed points plate from one of the donor bikes, cleaned and installed;

Tonite I'll set points, timing and check valves. When the race bike gets back from the exhaust shop, will put the CV carbs on and get it started.
What would John Penton do?
