Today I spent a few minutes fitting the magneto bracket back on to the timing case. A small paper gasket went on first. Next the magneto nut closest to the engine has to be put in place before attaching the bracket, as it is impossible to get in after it has been fitted.
You may also recall that I was missing a stud for the crankcase cover. I have since sourced one of these and I also fitted that today.
Short and sweet today, but it was a case of doing a couple of little jobs while I had the opportunity. The next thing to do is to finish cleaning up the flywheel, and then to prime and paint it, ready to go back on the crankshaft.
