          I got some more work done today. I got the leaking heater core bypassed, don't need heat right now anyway. I got the suspension leveled a little better and brought the front end up a couple cranks. It was setting too low. I got my headlight bezels on they need some more adjusting the right side is way off! got the carb adjusted a little more and worked on the kickdown some more. I was having problems with the throttle returning. When I get on it it dont want to go back down to idle. It was staying around 1200rpm. I adjusted the throttle cable and the return spring some seems to be ok now I will keep an eye on it tho. I adjusted the timing again in at 14 initial and 38 total without vacuum. This thing runs better than I ever imagined I did a 15-20 mph roll and leaned into it not even full throttle maybe 3/4 and It pinned me in the seat and left 2 black marks about 60 feet! Im gonna need wider tires lol

              Nothing much accomplished today other than just riding it around. I took it out a little farther today staying close to the house because I don't have no tags yet lol. Did a little cleaning and fixed the overfill canister :lol:
              I found a can of carb cleaner and polished the ole TQ up it looks 100 times better it had alot of black soot on it from the backfires when the dissy was 180 off lol

                  Thank you buddy! I still have them I just didn't use them because they are narrow 14 inch wheels. I actually plan on redoing them and using them later just for a cruising around wheel combo. I like how they look, but wanted bigger tire options so I went with the 15x7
