With my girlfriend’s brother’s help, we are trying to get the engine started today. The prior mechanic moved out of town and doesn’t return phone calls any more. We test fitted the new Dellorto carburetor and in that process, noticed that the accelerator cable is missing, and the accelerator pump diaphragm is missing. We’re on a parts run again, this morning.
The poor baby has been sitting unused for many years and was home to some homeless cats. I have an interior mess to clean up, too.
Our goal today is to get the engine running before nightfall.
