    Hey chilly ! great pic out "in the sandy bit" :D do you know  what your fuel figure's were for the trip ?  cheers

I'm around 20 km/l but usually working the poor little thing pretty hard chasing bigger bikes, considerably less in the soft sand. With the exception of sand riding or strong head winds I generally get about 400km to a tank.

This is what you want Shelpi  [ and probably all you'll find ] and they are available off Ebay USA.
I can scan it if I have too but there are a few pages in it.

Wow, what sort of work was required to fit the 426 box?

Just $580 for the new gears and bearings from the us and a slight bit of grinding the case to accommodate the larger 1st gear. Otherwise it slots straight in.

I went out for my last ride of the year this morning. This old Ford race car is way out in the woods. I'm guessing after it was retired from the track some kids took it out for a beat run and this is where it croaked. Good times.
