    Got the frame painted and put the parts back on. Next step is to put the engine in.

    Not sure if this is what people do but for cutting my gasket I went with a clip board and dollar store magnets. They hold the gasket flat and the template as you trace it.

    Team, I have the engine in now It was too heavy for me but with a friend we carried it over and put it on a jack beside the frame. We were able to pull it in by tilting it back first, bringing it in and then tilting forward to put in the top rear then bottom rear, then top and bottom front bolts. I posted a new thread in the carb forums as I have a few questions on how they get installed. I was all setup to do the lean bike over into the engine but it was just too heavy to bring it to the bike solo and with two people I just went with the normal method.

    Today I got the chain and chain guard on. I mounted the carbs only to find the throttle cable they sent me is too short must be wrong one. Found it tricky to get the choke C clamp to fully close the right carb. I will have to take them off now anyways. I used degreaser and q tips to clean out the 4 bolt holes by the front sproket. Dirt and crud in there and I didnt want to strip a thread. All clean and good now. Prepared my damaged points wires for solder. Just need to find my solder iron.

    Found out why my front right engine bolt was not going in. Turns out in the metal frame tab there is a small metal burr. The original bolt had a lot of thread damage and a line right through the threads. I had thought it got dropped or damaged in the box but this explains it. Would have been easier to find and fix with the engine out but I got a small metal file and should be able to carefully clean it up. Found my throttle cable from Sirius was a little shorter than the original and other sites so trying to route it in the normal manner kept coming up short. I did find a way to route it and it should be ok now. Then I found one carb boot had a little chunk missing, not all the way through but it looked to be cracking so I orders a replacement set. Also having problems finding bolts to mount the foot pegs / side stand assembly to the frame. I take in one bolt to match and the ones I get back never thread in but the original one does so they are not getting me the correct threads.

    The Home Hardware I go to has a thread gauge right near the bolt section, Crash. Maybe there's one near you. I have a metric thread gauge in my tool box.
