My journey into trike building

It Turns and It Leaks

Bugger, went to start the engine today and we found a problem

I get some temporary fuel lines in place and rig temporary electrical leads to the coil and starter motor and generally get ready to run the engine.

Fuel lines

Then we try to run the engine

Not a happy chappie, found a leak from the oil cooler matrix so need to pick up some oil as well. At least we know we are getting oil pressure.

As for the oil cooler, I suspected it was knackered but I was being cheap and didn’t replace it. I should have a new one tomorrow direct from VW Heritage.

Excuse the language in the video
