Grease the hub and the cap and wheel lugs to protect them, works better than paint – use a small brush.
Install turned and painted brake drum and secure it with the retaining ring
Front wheel has been painted using Tremclad Aluminum paint. Ill touch up the wheel nuts after all is finished.
Ill hook up the front brake line after bodywork and painting are finished and I start reassembly.
Courtesy of Domineco the next few slides deal with changing the oil - heres the drain plug
He drained absolute sludge from his recently acquired machine. Previous owner obviously didnt change oil.
Used oil from one of my machines during restoration, and I thought this oil was overdue to be changed!
Domineco (hes in Italy) will have to change oil frequently to try and clean out the sludge. Engine should be really hot to allow the oil to drain freely.
Tappo magnetico (its the magnetic drain plug). Those are metal filings from the engine collected on the magnet.
This is what it looks like after its been cleaned. It should be cleaned every time the oil is changed. It will tell you a story of whats going on in your engine/gearbox.
Tapo superiore (oil filler/dipstick) marked on the bottom for minimum/maximum oil level. About 900ml of SAE 40 oil required – NEVER use a multigrade oil – EVER – got that?
Cambio olio. Improvise! If you dont have a funnel with a long spout just roll up a piece of paper, form a funnel and pour away! And, its disposable, and you wont spill oil on a hot motor! Grazie, Domineco
