Does anyone know what sizes the double ended ring spanner that comes in the tool kit is by any chance ?
24mm and 22mm I believe. 24 fits the axles; 22mm fits the dipstick and trans and rear drive fillers.

Yes they are Road King shocks. I had them on my 850 Lemans but that was so wrong. A better fit on the Eldo.

Well it took awhile, I finally got my gearbox back from my friend who went through it for me and got my friend Tom a long time loop owner to help me install it, a bit differnt from a Tonti (I can do that solo) got a few dings on the frame.
So motor has new seals, timing chain and tensioner, new rings. Amal carbs rebuilt, new wiring by Greg Bender he does great work, u joint rebuilt, new u joint bearing, tires etc. My friend Tom was looking through my parts and notised the new set of head pipes that came with it aren't for a Guzzi, I never looked at them to closely they look like they are for w Triumph or BSA, rats a couple of hundred bucks I was going to spend on some new crash bars.[IMG]

I'm pretty sure it's 27 - 22mm.

I've been using it a lot to spin the crank nut as motor comes apart.



Your progress is inspiring!

Hey SJC did you say you had the lifters refinished? If so I was wondering about the process, and how did the cam look? I thought the cam and lifters had a special silicon carbide coating or something that makes them wear a long time...please enlighten me!

You are correct. Loops had the 27mm version and the Tontis had a 24mm version:

I've never seen handlebars set so far backfrom the forktubes! Seems it would steer like a wheelbarrow.

Loopframe Guzzis don't "steer like a wheelbarrow" at all. Try one sometime.

With the civilian bars, mine steers pretty well. Not any slower than a tonti.

That is a great looking front brake.

Eldo running kind of.

Kind of.
http://youtu.be/pDpWbU1-DvA
It's spitting back through the right carb
Runs best with mixture screws all the way in
Rattling from timing cover. It goes away if I touch if I just touch it with a screw driver, maybe pulley is rubbing.
The strange thing is, watch the video and you will see what looks like gold sparks around the header, but they are to slow for sparks.

Love your new gas tank.

What are those doohickeys on your headers? The golden sparks are really strange., might just be your digital camera. Plugs and wires all tight?
