Found my original handbook for the 850T '74 model that I owned!
I'll post some photos after I've scanned it, any particular pages anyone wants to see?
Cheers

eldo

not to restart a battle about squish bands.....

i rode a 73 eldo for about 80k, and when the good gasoline disappeared it did not like the lead free "improvement".
i had it down for a rering and cylinder inspection, and got to looking at the pistons. they have a substantial pop-up crown, and the crown is solid. i just carried them to a machinist buddy and had him mill .040 off the pop-up. figured it lowered compression about 1 point. it ran just fine on 87 octane after that. probably lost a couple of horsepower - but whose racing an eldo?

As promised;-










Hope that makes for interesting reading, I did have a Works Manual but let it go with the bike when I sold it back in '79
Still kicking myself for selling the bike but being young & dumb back then!!!!!
