Good news. the box of bits from the US arrived.
Not only did I get the brand new 30 year old OPS, I also got in the engine box:
1 new crankshaft, 2 yes two P&Liner sets, 1 new con rod and 1 new exhaust adapter (I didn't have a clue where I would get the exhaust adapter, lol)
Just take a look at that 30 year old carb, lol
This is going to be the new shell, it's not an original (the original shells where solid white plastic that where painted on the outside) but as close as I'm going to get for now, It'll be painted the same as I had it all those years ago in "Janspeed" colours, Janspeed was an after market 1:1 car specialist, I like their colours back then, lol
Got the diff parts back from the anodisers, they did a super job matching the gold and yes I know the bearing holders where originally black but I wanted them blue (it's my car isn't it?), the rest of the diff parts where cleaned up.
Diff fitted with new spur gear, I don't know what material the brake disc is made from but it's still newish so I put it back in, the exhaust fitted with re-anodised black top and new 90deg nipple.
First fitting for the shell, looks well nice I think.
