    that list that skooch laid down, while overwhelming, is comprehensive and very detailed - that should be in a forum somewhere for others to reference/print, with a checklist box on each item. wowsa.

    looking forward to hearing more on this project - good luck.

      FInally got out to my storage unit last weekend and started in on the wake up checklist. New battery, oil change, new plugs, 3-in-1 oil down the cylinders, new tires, and overall assessment of the rest of it.

      With the new battery in place, I confirmed it does crank over and the starter sounds strong! Great to hear that. I just placed orders for new coolant hoses, water pump, thermostat, and will be pulling the gas tank and rad this week for cleaning.

      Oh, and I gave the carbs a little sip of Seafoam to start loosening things up there too. Stoked to get this thing back on the road!

        Might as well get a jump on it & send the Z-S carbs to poolboy for a refresh. Either now or later.

        Don't toss the old water pump- they can be rebuilt better than a new replacement.

          It's got dual webers on it, and the old Z-S carbs have had all the emissions gear stripped. I sent poolboy photos a while back, and he declined to try and tackle em -- too much original gear missing from the emission deletes. Going to stick with the webers anyway. Will definitely give the Flying Dutchman a look - always good to have a spare pump.
