More bits and bobs have been stripped, cleaned and painted in recent evenings. The high temp paint I bought provides a surprisingly good finish…
Next up it’s the oil filter housing. A curious design… inside this metal housing is a disposable paper filter. The oil pump in the sump of the engine, pushes oil through the filter and back to the engine. It’s a system that works effectively…. So far so good
But… Due to the angle at which this is mounted on the engine block, changing the paper oil filter can be entertaining. Readers who have ever changed the paper filter in one of these will be familiar with wiping used engine oil form their armpit. Anyone not familiar with this ritual can get in touch.
…. and on a final note, and slightly off topic, I fitted some LED lengths in the garage to brighten up a little this over the work bench. 15 CHF well spent.
