I know I should have taken a picture before dis assembly.

I thought at the time it was so obvious how could I not remember it later.

So now I have to ask for help again...



Does the clutch cable route in front of or behind the front engine cradle? I was previously calling it a frame member, you learn the names when you read the directions...

I looks like it will be in the way of the fan shroud if I run it in front but I am concerned with it being in the way of the fan if I run it behind...



I have been through the factory manual and the clymer manuals and I cannot find a picture or a good description.



Y'all are right it is easy to nick new paint when your re-installing the engine.

Just damn it looked great (to me) hanging in the sling in the garage now not so perfect.

Tony as I'm here tinkerin and have a cam to hand

heres mine

I dont do standard and fit stuff to please myself but

generally, thats how most cables I've seen run.

I often use a cable tie or similar to stop the cable getting

scorched on the downpipe as well.



Routing the cable around the clocks is the tricky bit

Sod the manual, fit it to get the cable running free

as any tight bends will stiffen it up



BTW

The bottom looks a bit skew wiff cos I tucked it in there

but it usually runs outboard of that stud/nut

May I copy your radiator grill? I like it very very very much.
Of course Nate

Its only alloy speaker mesh

I couldnt be doing with the horrible plastic thing and wasnt interested in

anything shiny so stuck that on instead

It does allow easy access to the plug and crank bolt when turning the

motor for doing tappets etc.

I find the rad cap is easier to get at as well and my electric fan is tucked

in behind there too.



I see the Wrenchmonkees did the polished brass header thing too

but made a better job of it then I did.
