Hi Guys,

Finally found the root of the dead short in the lighting circuit and have now fixed. That moment, when you make a change, turn the ignition, and All the lighting works after all this time, just fantatsic.

So with the lighting circuit done, its now trying to work out why the clutch wont actuate. The service manual says to insert the clutch rod, so the notch at the top of the clutch arm, is between the two embossed ridges on the cover, which it is, but whilst there is tension, its not possible to put it in gear, pull the clutch and roll the chassis backward and forward. The update video can be found below.

Thats coming together nicely mate, I quite like the polished tank - reckon that'll look great once its fitted!

What front master cylinder / brake reservoir do you have fitted? It doesn't look stock.

That's a pretty strong beard btw! :) does it make it as far as "sea captainly"???

Hi all,

Well, tucked in to the ignition circuit issues, and made a video of the tests, from battery to solenoid. I eventually worked out it was a neutral switch issue, and purchased the replacement part.

The link to the diagnosis video and the first turn over is below. \
