Crap!!! Major setback. Hiya John!

Yesterday I finished the loose ends and spun the motor over with plugs out to prime the oil system - No joy.

Swapped in my known good pressure sender - nada. Oil tank agitiates like the scavenger pump is pushing oil/air into it, but pressure pump either isn't getting oil or isn't pumping. I have an injury on my dominant hand that hurts like Hell, so I'm leaving the motor be for several days.

Even though I had put a vinyl vacuum cap over the oil inlet barb a while back to keep debris out, I have this nagging thought that maybe before that I stuffed someting inside it before and didn't notice it when putting the vinyl cap on. If it isn't something that simple, then the original motor gets the first teardown. Either way, I figure I probably have two fixable motors, or worst case one fixable and one parts motor. And on the bench, these motors should split open pretty quickly. I have the Chain Gang DVD that shows how.

I got some new bumper stickers in the mail today, so it was time to set my plan into action. I have been contemplating how I would stick this on my bike, in the back, as you would on a bumper. I was looking around the house for a piece of flat or slightly curved plastic that I could use. I ended up going to the store to buy the cheapest plastic cutting board that was large enough. It was fast and easy to cut it perfectly with a hack saw. Two 3" strips of outdoor double sided tape, and its solid as a rock. I can make the whole top box flex by pulling on it. I pulled off several stickers from the sides of the boxes as well, and installed some new ones.

Outdoor two sided tape

Is that available most anywhere?

And Jerry,

I'll call you when I remember to get that little street helmet out of the garage in Spring Hill

HoJo's coming up tonight

I'll call down there and leave a message for her to get it

Called and left message, we'll see what happens next
