Default SHE'S ALIIIIIVE!!!!

Thanks to all for the support, thought it only fair to provide closure

I'm sure the belt being off couple teeth didn't help, but ultimately found the exhaust cam gear was 90deg out of position. Torn it all the way down to the visible TDC arrow on the Crank, buttoned it back up and she started after a few cranks

Thanks guys!!


Wanted to desperately take her out for a ride, but need to source a cheap radiator and fan first as current has a crater in it and didn't want to risk it (damnit)

Dude. Either get a used good one local or buy a new one. Not worth shipping some janky used radiator.

Congrats on getting her running again.

Glad it got figured out. Don't feel bad about it, I did the same thing 5 years ago and spent far to long chasing down the problem.

Thanks guys..I actually bought her like this and at a deep discount so I'm stoked right now!!

Yes will prob just buy new, not worth causing more gremlins to save a couple bucks
