Surprised at the number of G/S PDs with side covers, even more surprised that most of them seem to fit even worse than mine.

But then maybe we all bought them from Replico --------.

Ok, I've got to give up drinking............... .............. I kinda like the BMBaru.
Very reliable engine, except for rear main seals, they seem to go forever.
Has it got the stock points ignition or '84 on transistorized?
Distributor maintenance looks challenging................
Now where did my beer go.................
