Hi Petr
You did a great job with a very nice result after 3,5 year working .
I see this carrier on the photo's during a event at Belgium but i have not
see or speak with the owner of this carrier.
Seems it looks the same likes your carrier?

Cheers Marcel

Thanks guys
Marcel I noticed this carrier on youtube as advertisment of some company making stencils and markings.
Have no contact to the owner though. Would be nice to get in touch with them, its same type as mine.

Petr,

A quality restoration. Great to see you 'enjoying the fruits of your labour' and sharing it with others.

Thanks Peter!
We had some engine issues, mostly connected with the carb but now is engine performing much more better.
Also did some steering tuning, static and dynamic

Started to grind out the welded grips on my tracks. They are very good for winter rallying in Sweden, but unfortunately not compatible with the paved roads over here

Thanks Paul, sooner or later you will ride your own!
We have had overheating issues with running without the thermostats, now with thermostats its much more better. Wise guys told something about need of restricting the water flow.
Temp is holding around 190°, but needs more tests under load. Still at the beginning...

I put today in my Zenith-Stromberg 97 adjustable main jets and its really nice thing. Work with the standard jets could a pain in the a**, so I recommend this. Very good for proper adjustment, especially if you have non-standard carb.

Nice to make your carrier more complete with this kind of parts.
Next project will be the garage gate so you can mount at the future some steps and mud skirds at the left and right side.
You did a great job Petr,nice to follow the restoration of you carrier.
Cheers Marcel

Thanks, Marcel, the gate is wide enough, but I had to get out without the navigator, which wasn't apparently very clever idea
And also my driving skills are a bit limited

We have run the first mile(s) with Drsnak this weekend, mostly dedicated to the "power pack" settings. Engine is performing well, but still have some overheating issues. Cooling will need a bit tuning
Will post short video later.

Yes, that's good Petr. as I said, never seen one like it before. The simplified gate might allow a bit more tolerance in the linkage?
Is this a Brit only thing or did the Canadians do this too in late production?

Thanks Petr and Ron. So it looks to be British. I wonder now about production dates and T numbers.
