Mechanical heating trick I learned on here, you can if you want put the parts in a good ziploc bag with some oil of your choice then drop that in boiling water. Apparently works well for BMW Rear Drive bearings so could work on other applications.

thanks for the discussion above, as we had taken apart my Coleman the weekend and the pump seal is broken. I will try to replace it with a leather spare of my phoebus cooker.
Anyway, we have arrived at the castle after about 3.000 kms on a bike 'the average German rider wouldn't want to ride out of the garage' to quote Justus.
meeting friends we see to seldom
and cook with them
The cooking is nothing 'officially' endorsed or programmed. there's just a few guys who like it, and they tend to camp in the same space.
especially Falk is a great cook and master of ceremony
and there's bikes to be seen and discussed
the lady riding that Guzzi hack weighs hardly a 100 pounds, if at all
the Dutch and the Welsh - not on scrap bikes, but highly welcome friends (and tough winter riders)
that's 'Miss Lehmann'
nice Triumph, see spare pilot fuel at he rear wheel
remember,all those bikes have to pass the TÜV, the technical inspection (but the few foreigners)
having a drink once in a while
the weather wasn't to stable that day, but it would get worse
coffee, turkish tea or wine - table after a rain shower
teaching the young ( he does have a bike trice as old as him and up and running now)
tightening the chain
hope I will be back sooner than last time, but work right now is a bit demanding and there's some other things to care about - including preparing the MZ for the winter meeting

Heating the spark plugs was to prevent them from sooting, when firing the engine up (which took quite a few kicks until the b*st*rd ran again) with lots of extra oil in the bore.
