Decided to do the Nif Naf today as short on time, Polished up the exhaust bit and top water outlet, Dip and half the throttle lever.

so not to much brass left to clean up Very Happy

One bad thing is i think i may have ruined the bearings in my drill owell

This has been a brilliant post as its giving a lot of detail on the restoration on an engine.

Lets hope a lot more of this type of "diary" of restoration is posted here.

Have you tried FWB in Threemilestone, Truro for those dome nuts.

Might be worth a try, they normally carry a wide range of stuff.
