ES2 progress
« on: August 09, 2018, 01:50:51 PM »
It's starting to look much better:







Starting and running well thanks to fitting a 3.5 cutaway rather then the specified 4. Many thanks to Dave for supplying me with this. I suspect the original was for economy rather than performance.

Still a few jobs to get it on the road so I can assess what needs to be done over the winter apart from cosmetics. But so far I'm pleased with progress.

Yes, and even so it's quite loud!

I've obtained what seems to be an oem muffler of that type,
with quite complicated looking internals (gazing into it).
I'm keen to get this show on the road, to try it out).

Someone here has had some early dommie mufflers remade with the original type internals replicated,
and the difference is like chalk and cheese.  So is the price though !

btw, I've also obtained the current Enfield quiet type muffler, and its even longer...
(as a discard, so the list price won't cause any fainting spells).

And a red HT lead......

At least there are no gutter bolts involved. ;)

and it runs on fresh air too, at least I assume it does as there is no  fuel pipe to the carb.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

That's why it was running so weak!

Actually I've been using a temporary tank with the real one removed while I sort it out. Just put the proper one one to take the photos.

I've been off greasy2's since I dropped one on my foot 40yrs ago, heavy old lumps.
