Still putting my baby together, and any info would be helpful..
Go with the Teflon brake pads right away. No need to sand them to prevent drag.
Bend the belt tensioner wire(the section that goes through he mount and touches the setscrew) so it is almost parallel with the long part. Unbent, the tensioner puts to much tension on the belt even without the adjusting setscrew touching it. Just bend it enough so you can adjust for tension and manifold clearance.
Must use silicone sealant on diff gaskets. Part # T0220G warps too much when tightened to allow good seal.
Grind flats on steering pivot ball shoulders(part #C0502) to allow easier removal with needle nose pliers.
Must use newer Novarossi carbs on this car. Older carbs does not leave enough clearance for the brake disc. OR you could just grind/file older carbs for clearance.
Thats all can think of now.
