I stripped out the governor from the engine this evening. Not difficult.
Now assembling the new carb . Plan to fire it up in the next few days

Steve, as you have shown the pics of governor removal, can you explain how you removed the plastic parts from inside the crankcase? Each one I have done wasn't done with finesse, perhaps you have a better way?

If you’d watched me there wasn’t much finesse. Gettting the little circling off isn’t easy, hammer and long screwdriver. Once that was off then a decent pair of pliers and a bit of twisting and it was off

I came across this alternative way of tackling it, don't know if it's easier or not, skip to 1.30 for start of removal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztm2BZMSbIw.

Engine rebuilt, carb fitted. Fuel in tank tomorrow and see if she will fire up
Then I need to do some grinding to the backplate of my torque converter

I took the governor out of mine today and combined the techniques:  Crankcase cover off.  Use a drift to knock the central pin in about 1mm.  This unseats the circular clip and the plastic gear pulls straight off.

I had never thought the central pin might move! Does that mean a google thread has valid information :)

The body is now on. I spent a morning altering the height and length of the steering column. I haven’t driven it yet within the body on yet. Still got a few things left to do
Build a better exhaust, fit different jets and adjust the carb, make the seat

Hello Steve,

Very pretty!
I love white rims? Did you disassemble to paint ?
When I painted mine, I disassembled everything to avoid splinters of paint on the bolts to adjust the spokes ....
Congratulations on painting the bodywork !

Made the Seats today. Black vinyl that’s pre stitched ( eBay £13 per mtr) 3” high density blue foam ( ebay 60” x 20” x 3” ) £20 stuck the foam to 12 mm ply then wrapped the vinyl and stapled it on the back. On the seat base I started with a layer of the thin 10mm dense foam that’s used for floor mats then the 3” stuff on top. Now fitted in the CycleKart, feels about right when sitting on it. What’s its going to be like when haring round a field or track .... who knows eh 😳
