So I've bought a 1998 Ural 1wd with the 650 motor. It looks pretty original and unmolested. Has about 12k on the odometer. It didn't run when I bought it, but a few electrical tweaks, and a valve adjustment and I got it running (although poorly). As I'm thinking about trying to get this back on the road, the response everywhere else has been "don't plan for it ever to be reliable" which I just don't believe. IMZ made something like 4 million of these over 70 years, and people have been around the world with them. So....my question is: "Say I was willing to put $1000 in making this run more reliably, what should I do?" I live on the edge of a city surrounded by two lane country roads, and I have family 30 miles away on these type of roads. I want to be able to do 60 miles round trip at 50 MPH and have a pretty fair shot at getting there and back. So far, I've ordered all new cables, new Pekar carbs, new petcock and fuel lines. It has a relatively recent battery. The brakes are non-existant, and will need addressed, and it will need new tires. I believe the ignition, alternator, regulator, wiring harness, etc. are all stock as made in 1998.
