    Engine is back in the frame but for the life of me i cant find the little rear cam guide that bolts on the carb side with two 10MM bolts. I remember taking it out and putting the bolts into it. So i started plugging the things into the wire harness and fitted the SH775 R/R. Starting to look like a viable motorcycle again.

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    Hey, Chuck. Could yo do me a favor and post your r/r swap. Electrical procedures just don't click in my little pea-brain w/o pictures. What factory color wires go where and connect to what..that kinda thing..thanks in advance. Getting very anxious to see this bike whole again. Red & White ones are far and few between.

    Got carbs done, painted the cam cover, attempted to paint calipers but the caliper paint looked like crap. Same duplicolor part number and i shook tge can till my arm was tired. The calipers are now in paint stripper. Im gonna just use the black VHT epoxy paint and be real careful when bleeding the system.
