Default Re: Giant 3-speed Suede w/ Jackshaft Nightmare

The "High Tech" vice was a little time consuming to operate, a little hydraulic jack would fix that.
It was kind of funny, I was looking for heavy things to hold the flange in place in the garage and well, there was something heavy ;-}

Thanks donut.
Things like my ignition wiring and shrink-tube covering of the connections works wonders.
I also found that posting pictures of my work tends to make me look at every detail my and if something doesn't look tight enough I go out and fix it, which I just did again yesterday.

I figured out why my speedo kept reseting.
I ran the sensor wire up from the fork and tied it to the group going to the sight side, That group has the kill button wire, hence the CDI wire.
Inductance caused the spark pulse to bleed onto the speedo wire.

I just ran the wire up with the other bundle and tucked everything in some more.

Then I finished cleaning and painting that rusty old tool box of my sons and put it on.

I don't know if I should just stick a fork in it and call it done, or go ahead and pull the exhaust off and port it.
I suppose I should, it would help that little 48cc.
