Hello Dave.

Good find !
I have not done the fork seals yet, but they do not look like they would be too much of a problem. I did replace the gasket when I cleaned the oil filter. My cases looked like they haven't been split for years and the old gasket was ripped etc.
They are easy enough to work on if you are anyways mechanically minded. I also downloaded a workshop manual online like yourself.
Got my timing sorted out eventually. I removed the ignition advancer and disassembled, turned it 180 deg and re-fitted. Checked timing with strobe light and it was close to perfect.
If you need any help give us a shout.

Cheers Steve
