    Hi Ray!
    Sorry, I just now noticed your message. I take it you found a bike that works for you then?

    I'm guessing you already got it cleaned up, but if not here's my method: I removed everything I could, and used a wire wheel on my bench grinder to clean the gears and metal parts. Then on the other parts just brake cleaner and a small wire brush with lots of elbow grease.

    Greetings Mate. We talked a while ago when you were working on the 75 Wing for your friend. One set of pics showed the crude in the timing belt area and what it looked like once you cleaned it all up. Could you tell me what you did to clean that area. I am working on one now and found all sorts of crude in that area plus rust on various parts. I think I should clean it up before I put it all back together.
