  1. Done my work for today, the onerous task being a lie in until 0800hrs.

    Now that bit of effort is done I can relax ;)

    @keithmac are you a motorcyle mechanic type bloke? Lucky man if so.

    Yeh, we used to import 400's from Japan and 9 times out of 10 they needed the carbs stripping.

    With a carb bike if you're planning to stand it up draining the tank and fload bowls is normally good enough.

    Stale fuel bloody stinks as well..

    Had an NC30 lovely bike but very small, I remember the days of BAT motorcycles etc and the grey import boom.
    Do the carbs need ultrasonic cleaning or is manual scraping and carb cleaner good enough?

    If you strip them down and give them a good clean (carb cleaner, brass brush airline blow gun) then normally that's good enough.

    We bought an ultrasound bath and they do clean up better in there but you still have to strip them down first.
     
  14. Todays 'work' consisted of removing the old locking wheelnuts from the Ford Fusion of Elderliness, because the key is missing.

    Took 30 seconds per wheel, so if you think lockers will protect your wheels you need to think again.
