You're right it does.

Maybe it is just a wrongly labelled cable and its shorter than it should be.

So - took the cable out and measured it - give or take 5mm its as per the label, it measured about 3210 so can't blame them.
It looks like I need the pre '71 cable then so will give them a ring tomorrow and hope we can do a swap.

Also, rain stopped play so no real work made today.

Hurrah - got the longer clutch cable (for the 71 year only) which is perfick





Will take it out (again) now I know it's good and grease it and fit the rubber boots to go over the ends of the to stop rubbish getting into the tube....

Weather is crap this week so this is all I could do.

Carburetor time so let’s give a clean and replace some gaskets and stuff.

Here we are:



This gasket has seen better days:



Old one on the left but the rubber is thicker:



Nice and clean:



New one on the right……. Cleaned out the old one and put it back:



All done:





Just need an air cleaner to go on top.
Connected to the manifold now so almost ready to put the engine in……...

Looks nice and clean now.

Give the brass fuel inlet a quick pull with some pliers to make sure its still secure. And safety wire it anyway once its back on just incase.
