Odo 6821 Did a valve check & found the LHS intake tight. Retorqued the head even trying to do SS' trick to pull the rocker supports in with a clamp to minimise endfloat (no luck - too fustrating) RHS ones were ok. Adjusted idle up a bit then synched carbs at idle & at 3Krevs. Went for a quick ride & found the engine braking not as good as it was. Maybe that's why I usually set my idle a bit lower -I never have to stop at traffic lites etc so a faster oil slinging idle isn't that necessary however trials riding requires a bit more help from the engune brake dept. Will see what happens. Oil is now just over max so hopefully I won't be getting too much more oil blowout thru the breeather pipe. Best job I did today was to finally find the bloody turbo timer stuffed under the dash on the Bighorn & turn it off- yahoo- no more fumes in the house. Also arseholed the left-key-in beeper. Frick I hate having non human things telling me what to do - the microwave is bad enough. I've commited to riding with the Blenhiem crew tomm. Bit apprehensive - not quite sure what they'll be like. Kinda like going to visit your new girlfriends favourite mad aunty.
