Compression issues aside, I think you’ve made a great choice regarding paint colours for the engine covers. It looks really good.

Hi all,

Apologies for long absence, the KZ project has ground to a halt a little whilst sorting the Jag took all my attention. That is running fine now, but has electrical gremlins which are foxing me.

I have taken the chassis of the KZ to my work where I have access to a welder who has agreed to ... work... on my frame.

However, before anything was done I was looking at it again and I realised that what I want may not be possible as dropping the side tubes underneath the seat may hit the carburettors!

Only one way to find out: drop engine in the frame, put the carbs on and see what is possible,

So that is the next step: Get the engine from my garage into my car, then into the frame and take it from there.

Next week I hope.

Cheers
Paul

Sounds like a good practice taking out a 250 pounds guy in a trunk! hahaha
