Wrench weekend

Carburetor solution: As mentioned earlier, I had some carburetor problems. After installing the CV carburetor everything went better and I thought that I just had to change the jet and make a few adjustments. But it turned out that no matter what I did, it wasn't good enough!
After a lot of troubles I ended up installing a Dellorto carburetor, the bike starts easy and runs very good now.
After the installation of the Dellorto carburetor I just had to figure out a way to install the aircleaner, but together with my father we found a sulution. (no pictures at the moment)

Wing nuts:
I had promised myself that I would not put anymore brass at the bike, but in the end of the fender struts I had installed stainless acorn nuts, and it looked very modern, so I decided to Install two brass wing nuts I got from a guy named Rolf, thanks body !

I had a few oil leaks at the bike and some clutch issues witch is also corrected now, that means I will soon be riding the bike all over the country.

Last weekend I adjusted the Ignition and started the Ironhead, It starts very easy and sounds very good. Unfortunatly I wasn't able to turn off the choker of the Edelbrock carburetor, without cutting off the engine as well. I tried to make a lot of adjusting, but I didn't get a good result. This forced me to the decition of installing another carburetor to see how that works.

This weekend I installed a Keihin CV carbretor instead, this time with much better results ! but it's still not perfect. I'll try to install a fresh set of condenser and contactors in the magneto, to se if I can make it run more smooth.
