Re: Brads Tiger

Managed to recover the generator pulley, the shaft insert was a bit twisted, went from 64 thou run out to 1-1/2 thou which i thought was the best i was going to achieve, slowly slowly is the best way and keep resetting the fan blades as that affects the whole thing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/1tfd1s2...

Trial fit of the windscreen went ok this time, took nearly a whole day though to get the hood frame to latch into it without putting any stress into the windscreen frame. https://www.dropbox.com/s/y6jo40rxnewzgyg/IMAG4973.jpg?dl=0 Actually this was on and off another 30 or so times to get everythin...
