    Got the lights working, rebuilt the carburetor and installed the duel exhaust. Started cleaning the engine. Next up in installing the correct radiator (it’s on order). 839854F0-953A-4026-8E0E-14694CA92688.jpg A384FA20-11AA-43C3-972D-F0A414F220D3.jpg 957BD789-8FDD-4271-A091-A2E2AF04AAC3.jpg 839854F0-953A-4026-8E0E-14694CA92688.jpg

    I was looking on the fire wall and saw this. It’s broken and does not prevent the engine from starting. Does anyone know what it was for? I am thinking it was left over from the original engine set up. 6BA4CB38-7E1B-4F33-A9B6-B0D628F77C84.jpg

    That looks like a ceramic terminal block. If the ceramic is broke where there is no connection terminals you might be able to epoxy it back together or buy a new one.
