The battery even looks alot like the one shown in the original manual.
This sure kicks the motor into life quickly.
A battery clamp had been made from scrap lying around and it didn't look too bad. As the chances of finding the correct clamp seemed unlikely I had spent a bit of time making it look good. However, the right one did happen along, and after selling a lung to fund it, I have the perfect way to hold the period battery in place. Detracters might say it's a bit rusty, but painting it will only make the rest of the engine bay look even worse! As it is the clamp fits in like it has always been there. I can't ask for more than that.
Due to a return trip to NZ for a holiday and then getting a really bad flu from my daughter (sharing is caring, right?) I have fairly well written off July. August has started strongly, though. Another Globe mag wheel is now polished and will be painted black as soon as the weather improves.
