Striving for mediocrity

Not much in the way of real work in the past couple of months. I've rigged a bolt in the tailgate handle so I no longer have to crawl over the back seat to open the tailgate.

I bought Philski's AQ151 carb setup and plan to rebuild the Solex's and install them. I'm not super excited about having carbs without choke, but I am getting pretty tired of the intermittent K-jet issues, and am not really interested in investing the time/effort/money into learning it and making it work.

Ultimately, I'd like to get a head to re-work and throw on some Mikuni bike carbs or TB's, but that is for another time.

For now, I'm going to get a mechanical fuel pump, get rid of the K-jet pumps/relay, and give the Solex's a go.
