Default Re: Hello from Indiana

Hello Pappy,
I am "oldflint". I am from Syracuse, IN in the northern part of the state. I am also an newbie. I put my bike together in Dec. an went to Florida for a while to avoid the cold. I just had time last week to get the bike out to see if it would run. After a few attempts and some starter fluid I got it fired up and rode about 50 yards and had to adjust the chain tighter. I now have fuel leaks at the tank fitting, the hose to the tank fitting, looks like the shut off valve leaks and doesn't shut off the fuel flow and I have a leak at the carb fitting. It looks like the threads in the tank fitting are cast in rather that being tapped. The fit is extremely sloppy. Have you had any similar problems?
