frame to be painted, new wiring maybe bearings if worn.
Post more foto's!
Started striping down the frame for paint and new bearings in head set The head bearings are like an indexing head so I'll they are shot.
Things are coming along slow on the Eldo, I got distracted by an GS850, for a while then had to get the F7 ready for a tiddler ride.
I'm in the put back together stage, new wiring harness, frame painted, new seals all around, motor gone through , Amal carbs broad and sleaved,<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/19950017@N08/7375596510/" title="IMG_0104 by steven_j_cote, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8013/7375596510_3029571e4f_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="IMG_0104"></a> just waiting to get the transmission back.
are those road king shocks?
and who's got your tranny?
Keep the momentum going!
So you have one cylinder big-bored and one side NOS (83mm)?
NOS Convert piston and cylinder. Would be real shaker with one 850 and one 950 piston in there!
Very nice Eldorado
Its amazing how many are posted in the various threads.
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.[/url]

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.
