XJ 600 Diesel bike build update

Just a little update on the diesel bike build.

I managed to get the carbs, air box, and engine + elecrics out today.

It was getting pretty dark by the time I finished, however, I managed to get the engine into the frame for a test fit and to see what sort of space I have.

Now, I think I wont be able to get away with this build without modfying the frame. However, the gearbox should fit with the engine in its current location. Of course the flywheel wont fit with the engine in its current location as its goes where the frame down tube is.

I ran out of light, but the next stuff is the exhaust and then engine out.

The pulleys for the belt drive have arrived, I will pop round to the metal place to see how much to turn it down, depending on whether Tim gets back to me 🙂
